I can’t believe it’s been 3 months since I blogged. Crazy how quickly time can get away from us.
We’ve had some really great times this winter, partially due to the crazy back and forth weather patterns.
One day we’re at the zoo in January…
The next, it’s sleeting and snowing…
…then warm enough to go wander around Colonial Williamsburg.
We’ve even had days like this:
Well, Josh and Nolan did. I was at work. 🙁
Right now I’m completely over the back and forth, though. We have passes to Busch Gardens and Water Country, we’ve got camping equipment, we’ve got a little johnboat…I’m READY FOR SUMMER!!!
I’ve been working hard to get my garden going. Trying to do it right this year, by planting seeds and getting things ready early. I’ve got garlic, onions, green beans, carrots, cucumbers, lettuce, spinach, tomatoes, watermelon, and lots of peppers. As usual I have no idea what I’m doing, but I’m going to keep trying. I just wish the weather would cooperate so I could get stuff out of the ground and into the beds.
We also got chickens!!! Can you believe we finally did it!?
We got 6 hens, the max we can have in our city (no roosters). Two of them are Buff Orringtons, two are Barred Plymouth Rock and the other two…I honestly can’t remember. They’re living in the guest room under a heat lamp. They have to stay there until they get their feathers (about a month) and Josh is working on the chicken coop for when they’re ready to go outside.
Oooooh! And we got a chocolate lab puppy, named Monty.
He was about 10 weeks in the picture above and the one below is from Easter weekend. He’s a little over 4 months now and it’s about time for him to go to puppy school.
I even got all crafty and made him (them) a dog bed.
Sure, it may have cost as much as buying one, but…at least I have a sense of satisfaction. 😉
The only other development is my obsession with Lularoe (and apparently selfies).
If you’re in the Hampton Roads area, I’m having a pop-up on April 28th. Use the Contact Me form to shoot me an email and I’ll let you know where.
Hopefully this post will get me back in the blogging groove. It’s gonna be a great summer and I can’t wait to share it with you!
