Grab a coffee..let's talk

Wouldnt it be nice to be on this tiny little boat..kicked back with some kind of favorite drink...(mine would be something fruity with Rum) and not a care in the world? That would be nice. Look at the color of the water...perfect blue if you asked me.

It's Wednesday. Hump Day as i referred to it when I worked. It's a really windy day here and it rained all night. We have had the weirdest weather in the last month. the temps are in the 60's today and will be in the 20's tonight...which means my sweet little family will be sick. Miller's respiratory will worsen and Madison will get all congested. I'm boiling water today to keep the house moist for Miller. He isnt sick...I'm just getting prepared.

Today I need to finish cleaning floors and vacuuming. Clean out my closet and sort sock drawers. Do some laundry. And prepare cupcakes for tomorrow's MOPS meeting..cake decorating. I'm also needing to prep dinner for tonight.
Miller and I are going to cut construction paper and glue them on other papers. He loves to cut. We may also paint today.
My bible study is tonight. Mom to Mom. I enjoy this study because it is so laid back. No homework and its everyday stuff.

So are there any gardeners out there? I'm getting my list together for our garden this spring. What I want to plant. If you have a garden let me know what your doing this year. I plan on green beans, squash, tomatoes, onions, bell peppers, a small herb garden on the deck, blackberries and strawberries, lettuce and some zucchini. I guess that will be about it. Maybe cucumbers again..I had good luck with those.
We may work on beds Sunday when Scott is off work. Prepping. I also want a pear tree. One that produces pears so we can eat them or I can make Pear Honey in the fall off of it. So alot of spring talk here.

I hope you all have a great hump day....see you tomorrow.

You gotta have two pear trees unless there is one real close or they wont pollenate (did i spell that right?). It is windy here too but dry.
I havent planted any blackberrys but my Mama has. Hers have done well. I think they come back every year.
I hope yall dont get sick. Package's mama called me before 6 this morning to tell me her stomach is running off.

Your garden sounds wonderful. I have garden space at this house, but nothing has been done with it, so I'll need to get the soil prepped. Should have done it last fall. I haven't planted veggies in a long time, but will put some rosebushes in this spring.

I would love to plant veggies, but now the dogs have the run of the backyard, and my front yard is taken over with flowers, trees, & bushes.

That picture makes me look forward to vacation.

Spring....awwwwwwwww Let it come please!

We usually put out about the same things in our garden as you mentioned except for bell peppers and onions. I am the only one that eats onions and don't care for bell peppers. I wish I did though because they always look so good.

I would love a nice apple tree. We have a pecan tree planted the fall before last but it won't produce for a few years. We almost lost it right after it was planted when we got that late frost in April.

I'm praying you don't all get sick. Good idea to boil the water. This is weird weather.

Your MOPS group sounds awesome. I love laid back stuff. I was going to join this group at my church until my daughter said "mom my friend Mel goes to this study and she said there is lots of homework." As you can tell my daughter knows me, so I chose a group that was little more laid back too, no homework.

I haven't had a garden in a long time and I don't have the greenest thumb but you have inspired me to make a go of it again. Thanks.

Well, I'm not really a garden person, but I love to plant flowers and work on landscaping my front a little. I am doing a little herb garden myself this year. I was thinking about Russian Sage and Prostrate/Creeping Rosemary. I'd also like to have a small area of mint. I'm still reading up on it all. I love this picture -so serene. It reminds me of my honeymoon in St. Thomas. So beautiful there.

Your garden sounds wonderful. Sailing on a boat with a tasty beverage...aaahhh!

I'm enjoying my Hump Day and day off by cleaning our home and doing laundry.
Since we live at a self storage property I'm unable to have a garden.
I do have some plants that I maintain so I'll be purchasing some potting soil and repotting this month.

Becky said...

Sounds like a cozy day. I remember boiling water to moisten the air when we lived up north. We even did it on our gas stove one season when the electricity went off and it was the only way to keep warm.

Have fun at MOPS tomorrow. I just put together a sweet gift for a new mama with a toddler. The new baby gets a knitted blanket and the toddler gets some books and a summer hat I made. I hope it fits.

I only have a few flower beds, no veggie garden at all. I am so not a gardener at all. Around here it's got to be pretty hardy if it wants to survive my ineptness.

My goodness, Jen, is there anything you can't do?! I'm so impressed by the list of things you are going to plant in your garden. I've only tried one or two herbs in pots, and they always die. I think I have a black thumb :) I so wish I had the time, space and inclination to grow wonderful things like that in a garden -- good for you!

Hope your hump day was good and you have a great Thursday :)

I am NOT a gardener but wish I was! I'd love to have a garden, if someone else did most of the work! It would be nice to have veggies or pears from a'll never happen here though.
