Getting down and dirty


I remember being about five or six and playing outside in our yard. We lived in a white townhouse that had a grass run dividing two driveways. I can remember
sitting on the ground and sorting through the dirt to find bugs, rocks, flowers – an endless amount of entertainment.

Sometimes when I tell my daughter to “not get her clothes dirty” this comes to mind and I HAVE TO bend the rules for conscience sake. How could I enforce cleanliness in the middle of fun?

I spent some time gardening on New Year’s Day and planted some peas and lettuce. I can already see them coming up. So exciting!

Tomatoes Jan 9, 2013
The tomatoes were planted about a month ago and today, I saw the fruits of our labor and got so excited. I can’t wait to have these on a salad in a couple/few weeks.
I love getting my hands dirty, but I have to place a special thank you to my husband, who waters our plants every day and I am so thankful for that 🙂
