Back in January I poured over and over seed catalogs. I had my pen and highlighter always at the ready. By the time I was done I was going to owe the seed company a mint. So I began to cut back and cross off until I got a list that was a bit more manageable!
Last month my order came! I love the packaging form Territorial Seed Company! This is my first year using them and I was seriously giddy when I saw all the bright colors!
I’ve got some of my seeds started, now the snow just needs to melt and the temperatures need to rise. I’m hoping I didn’t start too soon! Normally, I start my seed mid-March and that seems to work well, but the weather has been pretty quirky here this year. I love seeing all the green poking up through the soil and Little Miss had so much fun checking each morning to see what would come up next!
THIS…. Cracks. Me. UP! I have no idea who took this picture, but it certainly captured real life after a long day of homeschooling. Look at the assortment gathered on my countertops!
I had to take a photo of this, for memories sake. It touches my heart that she still likes to play with her babies. Often she brings one up to the bar in the kitchen and she will place an order for lunch for herself and her baby! After many weeks, I now have my script memorized. “Hello, how are you? May I take your order?” She will ask me what is on the menu and I will give her the options for the day. Then she orders…. most often it is fruit plate!
I’m “kind of” teaching her piano. She goes in spurts, but on this day she wanted to give a recital of sorts! She got all dressed up and played her piece for me.
We have been having huge flocks of wild turkeys in our yard, as close as a foot from our house. They are desperate after the long hard winter we have had. We have not seen the ground since the last part of December and the animals are eating everything in sight. I have (had) a beautiful pine tree in my front yard that the deer stripped of it’s needles about 6 feet up. It was our hens favorite hiding place and it saved their little tushies from a hawk last year. They were a bit confused when they finally came out of the coop. They stood under the tree and you could almost see their little minds swirling as they tried to figure out where their hiding place had disappeared to.
We are super blessed that one of my biology students is an AMAZING artist. She gives my younger two lessons every Tuesday after we finish up biology. My kids love her and she is super with them.
School anyone? This cat learns through osmosis. I’m positive of it! By the time my children are done with school he should be a genius!
The rest are just for fun! A wonderful family gave me a 35mm lens for my birthday! I couldn’t believe it, it totally shocked me! So for the past two weeks I have been playing around with the lens and loving it! Here is a little sample of what it can do.
As I scroll back through this post, I am overwhelmed by how blessed I am. Thank you, Lord, You are an AMAZING, Loving, Gift-giving God!
