Birthdays and Busy-ness!
After this post today you can call me the Queen of Rambling...this one is all over the place!
I keep wanting to post about my seedlings, you know - what has sprouted, the varieties that I planted, etc. but I have all these random photos from the past few days lurking on my computer desktop. Since I want my seed variety post to be "clean" so to speak, for my future garden reference all this other stuff is getting lumped together - this is not an indication of any less importance of course, because....
Can you believe I don't have any special post or photo montage this year for him? Bad mommy...
oh, alright... maybe a quick one -
he hated the hat, hated balloons, hated my cake... I'm not much for cake baking :)
But below is probably one of the "baddest" mommy moments...
oh yes, that's a tire-sized bag of Dunkin' Donuts for his class, bad, bad mommy...
I was so busy yesterday between baking him a real cake for home, Garden Club shuttling, Swim Team, and having to be "out of the house" for a realtor showing it I just didn't have time to make anything for his class. Shame, shame... I actually was pretty mortified carrying this thing into school, especially since I've never even been to a Dunkin' Donuts until then LOL. To be fair though, Loch thought it was fantastic since "all the other moms" do the donut thing. It's never even occurred to me until he said something! Forgive me O Gardeners and Healthy Eating People - this will not happen again, I promise.
I did see some cool stuff at his school yesterday, look at this art project one of the students made, imprisoned by money - genius!!! I love the guy holding the sign "help!".
Loch's Garden Club got some new t-shirts yesterday donated by one of the parents, pretty cool design!
Quote on the back...
A photo of Loch's Garden Club board, it's right inside the school's front door and has lots of info for other students to pick up and take home, hopefully the other students and parents stop and get thinking!
So proud of him, they were starting seeds and planning out their spring plantings when I picked him up.
This past weekend it was time for maintenance on my Subaru, luckily I only needed regular maintenance, and she rolled over 50K miles last week. Not too shabby for having her since 2007, if you include a few 2400 mile Minnesota round trips she has done, that's hardly any miles I drive here at home!
Seriously... he polished the insides of my rims before putting the wheel covers back on and rotating my tires LOL...
Today it's a bit chilly so I spent all day getting some household paperwork done and bills paid, exciting stuff. I was able to make a library trip earlier today, sense a theme here?
I don't know about you, but it's hard to have a financially induced meltdown if you occasionally take a break to look at bug houses LOL!
Seed post to come soon!
