Look what I picked up! It is sitting in the corner of my living room and I'm planning to use it as a desk upstairs where I can do simple projects. I love working in my craft space downstairs, but it rarely happens. I feel a bit disconnected from the kids. This way I can work on something and still be in the middle of all the action! Functional and pretty!

This week we finally were able to get some water out to our garden. Not a minute too late. This girl is always on the go, especially with her new best friend.
I put egg shells around my tomato plants. I'm not sure if I crushed them enough or if I put them too far out, any advice?
The beans are coming up!
This little girl likes to look at everything! We just have to keep her off the plants when she gets a little too curious.

What a difference a week makes! There are little green plants shooting up all over our garden, the good kind, not the bad! Everything is up!

I'm knitting this cowl and probably will be for the next bit. Since I'm a new knitter, I haven't found a great time of day or night to knit. It always seems to pull me away of things I "should" be doing. Any advice from more experienced knitters.
We had some visiters to our garden this last week. Yes, this is one of the reasons we are building a fence and why we waited so long to get the garden in. I finally decided we had to get it in even though the fence is not in yet.
I watched as our unwelcome visitor took a bite out of my tomato plant! We tried our best to scare them away. They weren't too impressed with our weak attempts, but they finally left.
Here is a close up of our garden. Yes, we just finished planting this last week and not a lot is coming out of the ground. Actually, I took these photos earlier this week and yesterday we actually had a lot of green showing, lots of plants starting to come up.
But here we have some cucumbers coming up. They were the first seeds that we planted to show themselves. We were very excited to see them!
Here are our tomatoes. I planted marigolds around the borders.
I planted some herbs in one end and on the other end. I want to plant another basil plant in that empty spot.
Not a lot of photos with the kids. I have to admit, when we go out to the garden it is hard for me to remember my camera. But, here is a blurry photo that shows evidence of them. Trucks and dirt are Karter's new friends. I promise more kid photos next week.These ladies certainly did. I'm feeling very inspired to wear trousers and loafers out in the garden today.

I'm doing a better job with Isabelle's hair! With her pixie cut these last couple of years I haven't had to do much with it, and now it has grown long and snuck up on me. We are actually curling it on Sundays and trying out new hairstyles throughout the week.
