This past weekend was perfect. Friday after school was rainy so we were able to watch a movie together on and then I was able to sleep in a bit on Satuday. Since there had been so much rain the baseball game was cancelled and that freed up some time for us to just be at home . The weekend ended with a Sunday of perfect weather and since the weather was so nice we were finally able to plant part of our vegetable garden. The kids helped without us having to ask and are now planning their own garden that will be filled with every viney plant you can imagine. Pumpkins, watermelons, canteloupes.... We still have a bunch to plant, but at least we got this small section done and out of the way.
I always have the intent to make nice markers for each row of plants, but I end up not doing it and then never know what type of tomatoes or peppers we have. This year the kids found a bunch of rocks with a flat side and they wrote the names for all of the veggies we planted. They used a Sharpie marker and then I used Mod Podge so that the marker would not wear off. I think they look great, we even made a few that say, "The Clem Garden".
It takes very little to make me happy, I really just want to be with my family and spend the time with them. When the weather is nice being home and outside is all I need and I definitely got that this weekend, it was perfect.
