Memorial Monday

8:00 am -- and I don't want to spend much time on the computer this morning....

we arrived back from the farm yesterday afternoon at 1:00, had a super quick bite to eat as a family, and then went outside straight away! Hubby started rowing up the garden, and I went to mow down by our apple trees. We haven't mowed there yet this year (OOPS!) and the weeds are as tall as I AM!!!! NO lie!!!!!

When we moved in 6 years ago, DH planted 4 apple trees, and the year after that, he planted 8 more. The first 4 are doing good and we hope to get some apples this year (good amount of blossoms were spied) :0) However, the other 8 haven't fared well and I had ALLLLL intentions of removing the posts and chicken wire that have been protecting them from deer and just leveling the area after pulling the dead trees.

Gosh---I wish I would have thought of taking pictures. Imagine my surprise when I started sifting through the weeds to find some small (and some NOT so small) sprouts of branches coming off the main "stem". ALL BUT ONE is still alive----they may be small, but definitely alive! Maybe by the time the girls graduate, we'll actually have a good orchard of apple trees.... ;0)

Anyway, I truly digressed! I didn't plan to blog about my apple trees....

By 8:00 last night, DH and I finally hung up our gardening gloves, with about 75% of the garden planted. I know I need to get my butt outside again today (another GORGEOUS day forecasted by our buddy Ian -- one goofy meteorologist on a local Twin Cities station). BUT

I want to sew today!!!!

What do I want to sew???


But I want to sew!!!!

DH has a client meeting at 9:00, so I plan to sew, sew, sew until he returns.

I know, I know.....kinda stupid! I should be outside during the cooler morning hours....but.....

welll, duh! I'm preaching to the choir! You all "get it." When a lady needs to sew, SHE NEEDS TO SEW!

Happy Monday!

Pictures next time, I promise!

Yes, we do understand!

I want to sew a bit too. I woke up late so I've not made it there yet.

I'd love to see your garden as it grows.

We've been away for a few days, and I just couldn't wait to get back to my machine. I was good though, and weeded the vegetable patch and tidied up the shed and the greenhouse before lunch. This afternoon though, I was glued to my sewing machine.
