Video Tutorial from a 6 year old

Today was spent working, and working, and working! I used the rainy morning to repot some seedlings, although now I am officially out of space under lights in here and so they must start going outside this week! No "failure to launch" here, they need to get out! It's almost 8 pm and I still have a list a mile long of stuff I need to get done before Friday, but can't seem to get more than an hour's worth of work done at a time thanks to preschool driving, waiting for the school bus, back and forth to swimming lessons, etc! I think hubby is due back before the week is through, so it would be nice to have everything done so we can enjoy the weekend, but who am I kidding? Anyways, he needs to do some chores... I view his times out to sea as a vacation - no screaming kids, nobody but himself and some jets to worry about, LOL! I often think of how fun it would be for someone to have an intervention for me and send me off to a drug rehab place somewhere nice. Think about it - wouldn't it be great considering I'm NOT an addict? Just me to worry about, hang out in the lounge reading books all day, go to therapy and be entertained by other people's drama? Or even an inpatient at a psych facility while sane? As long as I have books and a window, it sounds lovely!

In reality, I know that I do get more done than the average Jane, but it just seems so overwhelming at times. Tomorrow I get to do my big grocery trip, which will eat away a few hours, but I guess I should just look at the bright side that my youngest will be in preschool so I can go shopping with no kids, I might not know how to act!

Seedling Paw Prints... I told you they were staging a takeover! I found it amusing after I put the flats away the mud prints leftover from watering looked like animal tracks.

Tomatoes getting bigger

Finn getting creative since the cable got shut off!


Lochlann, who just turned the big "7", will read anything he can get his hands on. I have to take the books out of his room at night so he will go to bed. He still hides some from me! He can usually be found reading strange things ranging from how to tie knots to a book on menopause (no kidding, lol!) He is completely fascinated by all things having to do with nature, green building, or the human body. Here's what I walked into this evening, enjoy the tutorial!

Motivational Monday!

Why is it that we always think that if we could just get this current list of chores done, there will be time to relax? It never ends for me, but for the kids, summer is good! Here's a pic from last summer, kids enjoying. I am sure I was covered in sweat and dirt from working when I took this, and the kids were probably laughing at all my self-imposed busyness.


Summer's coming!

Hey, just quit it already!

Hey you all, just wanted you to know that I am very very late getting started on my outdoor chores today thanks to everybody blogging like crazy this weekend! Seriously, it's 10 am and I am still reading blogs while my kids are throwing balls in the house climbing the walls! Okay, I think I am done catching up with my blog reading, and this is going to serve as my blog post for the weekend, LOL, lame as it may be! I've got this one day only with no rain, gotta make use of it! But really, y'all are a bloggin' mob this weekend, LOL, must be the crummy weather?! (I really love the excuse to not go out until the sun warms the yard though!)
