Busy, Busy, Busy!

The gardens are taking off! I've been busy trying to mulch where I can. LOL

And I have to give a huge thank you to the new grounds keepers. The two new guys are awesome and don't try to run folks over with the huge riding lawn mowers. On top of that they will stop and say hi and talk things over. The one I talked to today was flabbergasted that we have had to do the trimming around the gardens and the swingset. I was told not to worry about it anymore, that they are getting paid to do it and that is what they will do. And they are so careful around my flowers!

I let them know that if they were out working and needed a drink that they should let me know. Heavens only knows that if they are looking out for us that we should look out for them in return. Many cheers for having some guys who do their job and then some.

As it stands I am putting my money on it being a hot and dry summer for us here. After the weird spring I just have a gut feeling about it. I kind of hope I am wrong.

Next week it is looking like I will be making my first batch on cilantro pesto. As all of my other herbs kind of putter along the cilantro has taken off. I'm curious as to how it will turn out.

Until then I am almost done with the knit part of a bag I am working on. I ned to go through my stash of fabric and decide what I want to use to line the inside of the bag as per the directions. I'll get some pictures up and soon as the knitting is done.

Taking a stab

Ok.

Basic set up done? Check.

Going to take a stab at this blogging gig.

The world gets to see how weird I am. OK I'm not really weird but I kinda broke the mold too. ;)

Things to come....

Knitting, sewing, art stuff (as I make things for my house), gardening, gluten free cooking, kids running amuck, possibly some homeschooling fun, and the usual fun stuff that comes with being the alpha female. :)
