|trying our hand at herbs this year- sage in the blue bucket; then live-forevers and a blueberry bush|
|live plants at this end: tomatoes, green & red peppers, more herbs. seeds at the other end: green beans, peas, carrots, cabbage, zucchini|
|we wanted watermelon here by the faucet but put cantaloupe instead|
|the pool garden doesn't get as much sun now that we have neighbors so we only put in a few zucchini plants. the cabbage from last year is still holding on, so we left it alone.|
|snow in May, go figure|
We hope to put another garden, about 3 1/2 by 5, in the back by our shed, before mid-June.
I've wanted to rearrange the living room for a long while, and now that my hubby is home every evening, we have been able to make that happen.
|remove the 16 year old, original carpet|
|the subfloor isn't too bad|
|it can wait a little while, until we find a good cover. I've developed allergies so I don't want carpet.|
Then, building the new entertainment center:
|we've had this entertainment center (lower part) for about eighteen years. we used a 4x8 sheet of 1/2" plywood to make it bigger.|
|like this. then turned it to divide the living room from the kitchen.|
|this remaining piece was cut to end the cabinet so anything that spills on the counter won't end up on the computer table.|
|after. with hubby working back at Lowes, he's watching for paint for the wood and the clearance flooring for something that will work. until then, the round rug covers most of the subfloor.|
My oldest daughter started working at Walmart here in town. She commutes 30 minutes each way. Weeelllll, because we are most convenient and there are so many "mommies" in this one household, we are the designated babysitters.
|you can keep a 3 yo busy for a solid hour with colored vinegar and baking soda|
|grandbabies are God's reward to us for all we go through to raise our kids|
