Around Here

Nathan and I have been enjoying trips to the Farmer’s Market. Since I didn’t garden, I like to stop once in awhile to get a tomato or zucchini and maybe some greens. He enjoys the music groups and the little treat he usually gets. We found a stand that sells yogurt freshly made at their dairy. He prefers the strawberry!

I did plant basil which I’ve been plucking every few days and making yummy pesto.

Last year, I planted strawberries which are trying to spread in their bed. Hooray! I also planted raspberries and they are just now starting to ripen. Weird because I thought they were an early spring crop.

We’re hoping to plant some blueberry plants this fall too!

My niece stayed with us for a few days. Fun! She spoils Nathan and follows him around which gives me a mini break!

James and Lee went in the semi together this week.

It cooled off a bit–thank you, Lord! We don’t have central air and the miserable days are just miserable.

We’re off to my nephew’s 4th birthday party today.

We’re getting ready for a family wedding this week.

I found out that I need surgery for my abdominal pain–hernias (plural) related to Nathan’s birth. Yeah (grrrr)

The pain has been knocking me flat several days a week so I feel like I’ve accomplish the bare minimum every day and I guess for now that’s ok.

I have James’ school work planned and books to start purchase, but I MUST clean off the homeschool shelf and get his first weeks of assignments laid out. I’m hoping to get at least the 1st 6 weeks planned so that while I’m recuperating from surgery, he can keep working on school!

What about you? Anything going on around your house?

    So sorry to hear abut the hernias! But glad it’s something that can be taken care of.

    Our year old dog prevented us from having a garden this year 🙁 We weren’t able to get a fence up in time.
    Hope all goes well with your surgery.
