Hello, Anybody Out There?

Just nod if you can hear me...

We don't have blossoms yet, but everything is budding!
Hey y'all! Did ya miss me? Are you even still here? It's been nearly a month since my last post! I'm so exciting, eh?

Well, I keep trying to find time to blog, and when I finally get a chance to sit down without kiddos climbing all over me, I tell myself I can't blog without pictures, so then I tell myself I should wait until I have pictures, which then means I missed my chance and I need to wait til I can sit down again without kiddos climbing all over me and... It's a vicious cycle.

So here I am and you get to have pictures from the Ghost of Blog Past.

We've had deliciously warm weather this past week - mid 50's to 60's, and looking at 70's for the coming week. The kids and I have been outside at every possible moment, soaking up as much sun as possible. I wish I could tell you spring was here, but the weather is a fake out and we always get another cold snap before Easter. But I'll take it while I can get it.

Looky, his clothes don't even fit!

This precious little thing will be a year old at the end of the month. Can someone explain to me how that happened? How is he already 11 months? I just had him. Heck, I just had his bubbas, who will be 6 this year.

Basil seedlings from summer past
I have spring fever so painfully bad that I have been devouring seed catalogs, starting seedlings, ordering more seeds, going over planting charts and dates, ordering more seeds, weeding the flower beds, mulching the flower beds, ordering more seeds, trying to figure out a succession planting schedule, and wanting to plant anything I can get my hands on.


I realized today I only have about 100 square feet of bed space, with a wee bit extra if I squeeze stuff into the flower beds.

So. Not. Enough. I keep trying to convince Ben to let me rip up the lawn. He just stares at me. :)

Not at all what I'm working on.
I've been working on, and nearly finished with, an order for a customer. A week with the flu two weeks ago kind of screwed up my schedule but I'm back at it now.

I'm also working on a shawl design. Have I told you about this? I am creating the shawl for a fund-raising auction. I'm pretty excited about this design and hope I can get the pattern out for spring. If not, I'll have to wait til fall. Anyone care to test knit for me?

I have lots of garden journal to post, and I think I've decided on a new name for the blog. More on those both soon. You know, when I don't have kids climbing all over me. :)

Happy Weekend!

I was just wondering about you yesterday...glad all is well. Letting those kiddos climb all over you is WAY more important than blogging!

Allison said...

Oh no.... Meg wants to plant all the things again. :) Hehe. Better hurry up spring!

Hello there Birthday Girl. I hope you have a nice day, dreaming of seedlings and new flower beds.

Farm Girl said...

Haha, well I think you should plant everything. I love that about gardening, it is just one big science experiment.
I know that spring is just around the corner. :)

Plant the things! ALL THE THINGS!!

I'm glad you updated. I've been updating without pictures because I didn't have any. It really helps to get back into the blogging swing. Also, spring seems like a good time to write blog stuff. :-)

I'm nodding my head vigorously! I feel like a Who from Whoville.. "I am here. I am here." So glad to know that you are too. :)

Today the girls left the house in sweatshirts, no jackets, which is wonderful for us in February. And I do agree. You did just have your baby. There is some kind of mistake and there is no way that he will be one. No way.

Blessings, Debbie

I'm so happy you're back! :) Happy Birthday!! I am so shocked to realize that handsome little guy is going to be 1. Where in the world does the time go???? How exciting - a new name for the blog. Can't wait to hear.
