eye spy...a work in progress

I have works in progress all over my house, heck, my whole house is a work in progress! But here's one that's gong to be fun:

future veggie plot

That's the plot that's going to be veggies this year (we hope, anyway.) Right now it does look a lot like we've buried some very small victims, but actually that's where we've spread the compost we had in the basement and covered it up with soil to finish decomposing in time to plant. The garden has been a real treat so far this year. Lots of green is starting to pop up:

ferns are unfolding

Little visitors are appearing:

hi there

(not to mention we had a record bird-watching day last week with our cardinal pair, four bluejays and a robin, all within an hour or so!) We've gotten to do some outdoor crafts:

pinecone bird feeder

And I even managed to track down a new pink garden hose since last year's didn't survive. (Emily really wanted orange, but the only one I found was way out of my budget)

this year's pink garden hose

The garden is even supplying us with loveliness inside:

blossoming branches

So far, it's shaping up to be a good gardening year.

Eye Spy... A Magic Elixir

space glass

The magic elixir that runs our household? Coca-cola, sad but true. It's not as bad as it used to be, but we can't seem to quit it! But hey, it's our only vice (we don't even drink coffee) and fortunately, we have a mutant child who only likes water and occasionally milk (and thinks soda is "disgusting" and yells "soda breath!" at me if I drink any). So it continues to be the fuel that keeps us running...for now anyway!
