Ahh, this wonderful weather has been pulling everyone outside, and away from their bogs.
We have been weeding and preparing our gardens for planting. My youngest daughter (who is 2 1/2) just loves to help in the dirt, and I am ever thankful for it. I’m hoping to get some peas, beets, and sugar snap peas planted tomorrow. The tomatoes need to get started inside this week too.
My brother came to visit three weeks ago and we planted some herb seeds while he was here. They are sprouting up quite nicely! I haven’t had an herb ‘garden’ before (we planted about 3 or 4 together in one large pot) and am very excited to have my very own fresh herbs on hand! I had been thinking about making a cute shelf to hold mason jars with herbs in them, but had been pushing to project off. When I told my brother this he said something like – just put one together now, if you haven’t done the other one yet you’re not going to. Thanks for the push bro.
In other news, I’m a ripe 38 weeks pregnant. As of today it’s only 10 days till my due date. I am getting so impatient. My first 2 kids were born at 36 weeks and because of that I think sometimes that the last month of pregnancy should be optional… I am happy to be healthily pregnant though!
A wonderful package also came this week, which has been making it much much easier to wait for this little baby. A wonderful package with the word Amazon on the side of box (I love those ones… and the ones with fabric.com on the side).
I’ve wanted an iPad forever, but just couldn’t spend that much money on something just for me. A new sewing machine sure, but a ‘toy’, not so much. I absolutely LOVE my Kindle Fire.
I also got some new books, because of course you need new books when you get a Kindle right??
I’ve had my eye on these 3 books for quite some time now. I entered just about every website/blog giveaway to try to win the two quilting books when they were ‘blog-touring’. Looking forward to making stuff from all these books!
What are you doing with the warmer weather lately?
