Has it really been a week!?!

I can't post pictures because I'm on my sisters computer and all my pictures are on my computer. Sorry, I have some good ones. We had a wonderful weekend with my parents, oh man has it been a week since there were here? that went fast. Do you know that we have a fire pit in our backyard? Both nights my parents were here we decided to hang out in front of the fire. Have I told you how much I love sitting in front of the fire watching the flames flicker back and forth, feeling the warmth of the embers on my face, listening at the fire talks to me with it's crackling ways. Yes, sitting with friends and family in front of the fire is one of my favorite things. I'm also a bit of a pyro so that might have something to do with it too! But shhhh that can be our little secret.

I really can't believe that it has been a week since I've last posted. I've so been enjoying the great outdoors and my house work is suffering for it, but I can handle that. I've been working on my garden. Okay so that's a lie it's not just my garden my friend Jen, Andrea's mom, is doing it with me. Really she is telling me what to do because I have absolutely no idea what I am doing. But I'm learning and that's what counts. Someday I will be the one teaching but today I am glad to be the one who is being taught. I love learning new things. Sometimes I feel like my brain is on overload and I wonder if I will remember it all but that is why you write things down and why you put Jen's number in your speed dial. THANKS JEN!

Did anyone else plant their tomatoes and cucumbers the night before it frosted because we did. We were able to save 4 out of our 8 tomatoes plants, most of the beans made it but unfortunately all the cucumbers were casualties of the mean Mr. Frost. I knew going into this gardening thing that not all my precious veggies would survive. Between Mr. Frost, Peter Rabbit, and a number of other things the chances of 100% survival was slim to none. There were a few that didn't look good after Mr. Frost got a hold of them but they ended up pulling through and that was a nice surprise but I must admit it was tougher than I thought it would be to say goodbye to the ones that didn't pull through. I've never been good at saying goodbye. When I was little and I would see an animal on the side of the road my parents would tell me that it was just taking a nap otherwise I would be in tears for the next day and a half. Seriously it was pretty bad.

Well I have much more to say but it's 10:30pm and I need to shower before I fall into bed. It's been a long week. Good but long. So good night blog world I will try to do a better job of blogging but it's been nice out and we have such a big yard and garden that need a lot of work and a baby that needs caring for and food that needs to be made and a house that needs to be cleaned every once in awhile and... and... and... the list goes on and on. You know how it goes. Does one ever find the balance? How do you get everything done you want to in one day? in one week? What do you say no to so that you can say yes to the important things? What are the important things? Oh so many questions. I'd love to hear your answers. For real though it's time for bed. Sweet dreams!

I was just standing in my kitchen a little while ago, wondering how in the world do I get anything done with three children. I can't figure it out, so I am sure to be of no help to you! :) Sorry. But hey, should you figure it out, let me know, will ya!

Glad you had a good time with your mom and dad! I also love sitting around a campfire - it's a relaxing, comforting time for sure.
