Gardeners 2.0

In years gone by, I planned the garden and took pride in the layout, seedlings and fresh produce.  In the last few years, I'm working more and my busiest season coincides with planting season.  I'm so thankful that HandyMan has taken the lead on the gardenin and training up the next generation of little gardeners.

MMan was giving instructions on planting the carrots while GGirl munched away on a stalk of rhubarb. I sat back, enjoyed the show and the sunny afternoon!

"Hi Fuzzy Man"

Today we went to Animal Adventure to visit our local wildlife neighbors.  They have a great setup and a beautiful new giraffe.  What was most fun for me today (along with the fabulous company of friends!) was watching my fearless little MMan greet and feed and pet the animals.  The greetings of "Hello fuzzy man!", "Hi buddy", and " Hi big man" were heard over and over again as he greeted pigs, goats, lambs, zebras, yaks, llamas and more.

New Skills: Bike Riding

The children were recently outfitted with bikes of proper size and good repair.  MMan loves riding and usually can be heard singing while he zooms around.  GGirl is working hard to overcome a bit of a fear of falling, and gets her cycling groove on best when she's rested.  We took advantage of an empty parking lot this morning so they could work on their new skills.

Spring

Nothing warms the body and soul after a long cold winter like the sight of crocuses and a sunny, 60 degree day!

The clean windows will help me feel like I got something accomplished today and lessen the "I shoulds" while I park myself in an Adirondack chair with a book!
