Honey, it’s cold outside!

Last week the weather was nice…..then….the temperature dropped!!!!!!!!!!!! My husband had his garden uncovered, causing him to go into complete shock (lol). So, if you would’ve peaked in our backyard, you would have seen him out there covering everything up in a complete panic.

This was a couple days before the temperature dropped.

This is his garden covered up. Now, I didn’t mention that I covered it up prior to this but the wind blew it off. He came out and stapled the sides and added some reinforcement.

Here’s a peak inside. The greens are doing really well.

See that yellow flag? We had J U L I E come out to mark the ground for any wires. Hubby wants to plant these…..

  and he wanted to make sure we didn’t make any mistakes while digging.  Are you doing any gardening this year.  If so, let me know so I can stop by and see your garden.

Gardener Overboard

I have to watch hubby closely. He tends to go overboard during planting season. These are veggies he planted from last year.


I too can be a bit of an extremist. These are some of my flowers from last year.

Don’t Judge a Book By it’s cover

We’ve all heard or said it before. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover. Wikipedia describes it as a metaphorical phrase which means ” don’t determine the worth of something based on it’s appearance”.

Now we can break this down many ways. Today I’m going keep it simple. This summer my husband was the gardener. Just about a week ago he harvest some of our sweet potatoes. This was so exciting for us because we’ve never grown sweet potatoes and my husband makes a “mean” sweet potatoe pie. I’m sure you’re thinking, “what does this have to do with judging a book by it’s cover?” I’ll let you be the judge.

Where did our summer go?

What happenend? Last night I forgot to pull my car in the garage. So, this morning I had to turn on my heat to warm up the inside. My car was wet as if it had been rained on.

Labor Day is next week and it’s my turn to host our family get together. With the way the weather is behaving we’ll all be indoors. The last holiday to barbeque outside (comfortably that is).

With all that being said, it’s time to plant those fall bulbs so, we can enjoy beautiful blooms in Spring. To all you gardening Mamas! Let’s not let things get out of control and do our shopping and preparing now.

While your getting that garden ready let’s not forget to do our fall decorating. Nothing says “fall is here”, like a great entry presentation. So let’s not whine, moan & cry. Let’s embrace the weather change and have fun while doing it.

Declutter!

We’re spending this weekend decluttering. OMG! We’ve accumilated so much crap! I think back to when we first moved in our house and we heard an echo. We don’t have a basement but, we have a crawlspace. My husband hides our crap in there.

This decluttering mission all started because I was cleaning the closet under the stairs. The closet started off being my craft room that I rarely use. Now, my reason for cleaning under the stairs? I want a dog. Saying it, is tripping me out. I have a 2yr old daughter, you would think that’s enough? No. I have this urge to get a dog. I’m a little stuck up, so, my dog has to have it’s own room. So under the stairs he will go. Yeh, he! Once I heard girl dogs have a period! That help me decide on the sex of the dog. So, he will have his own room under the stairs.

When i’m done decorating his room I’ll bring him home. I’ve always said, “I don’t want any pets. A fish is good enough!” Now Mrs. A Fish Is Good Enough, wants a dog. Go figure?

So when we’re done getting some order in this house we’ll bring our new addition home. Yeh!
