Countdown, checklists, gardening …
So, the countdown for the twins’ open-house is in full swing. Menu has been determined, multiple negotiations for set-up and décor have occurred, deep-cleaning is about to begin … Oh, how I love being Martha Stewart! [Umm, NOT! – but I’m proud of my kids, love my house and 100 closest family/friends that enjoy that kind of thing … so, it’s all good!]
Meanwhile, our garden is producing! Yay … it makes this city-girl feel so good to ‘make’ vegetables. We’re not going to discuss how I probably spent more in seeds and man-hours than my ‘harvest’ is worth … But, it’s 100% organic baby – so I’m sure that’s good for you … right?!? And, since much of that zucchini is destined to become (sugar-heavy) bread … I need to tell myself that!
We even managed to blanch/freeze 6 quarts of beans … Watch out Martha/Pioneer Woman/Caroline Ingalls … I’m catching up with you!
Oh yeah … the Studio: I’m still on a night light ‘kick’ … Here’s our latest designs.
While I whine, subtly (?) and publicly … I also know I am one blessed, happy gal. Our first-born turned 24 yesterday. The kids recently got together, all grown-up style (sans parents – what’s up with that???) – to meet for dinner. Awww! Healthy generational foot-prints – they make me happy! And, I’ve managed 3 sunshine pool days so far this week. Life is good!
