Lost and Found

Thank you all for the wonderful comments and concern about my daughter. She is doing great, she seems completely back to normal. Remember that Crystal Palace DPN I lost about a month ago? Well, my mother-in-law moved a chair in her house and heard a little "ding". She looked under the chair and there was my needle! I can't believe it, I am so happy, I loved those needles and every time I would get around to the Clover needle I was forced to replace it with, I would cringe. I'm so happy!!! Here is my vegetable garden. Not very pretty yet but it will be soon! I started it last year and it did ok but I made a ton of mistakes, um, like remembering to water it often! My tomatoes never did very well but I did get a lot of squash which I used all the time. So the other day when it was warm I went outside and pulled out all the weeds. It wasn't bad at all since I had put weed barrier down. I know I should probably till the soil and whatnot but I probably won't. A few of the herbs I planted have come back like the peppermint and chives. I'm not sure what I want to plant this year, definitely squash, zucchini, tomatoes, maybe some strawberries, beans, peas, and peppers. I'll see what looks good when I go to the nursery. I'm so excited, hurry up warm weather! It actually snowed here for a few minutes this morning. Here is our amazing new screen room that my father-in-law has been building. There is still a lot of work that needs to be done (mainly painting and making/installing the screens). I know I will live on the screen porch this summer, it is so amazing and a wonderful addition to our house. My father-in-law called today to tell me the back-hoe was calling my name and will be digging the foundation for my kitchen (we're extending it out back 4 feet - just to the right of the screen room). That's how things work around here, one day you wake up and there's a back-hoe in your yard. I love it!!! And here are the first signs of Spring popping up around our yard.

I can just see you on your porch knitting away. You'll have to get a rocking chair!

So glad the wee one is back to normal.
