1. Sewing 2. Barefoot Running and 3. Gardening. These are the things on my mind right now, I’ll tell you what (as Hank Hill would say). Sewing, because I have a big bag of homework that I haven’t quite finished and need to (my stunningly creative teacher cut up a bag of quilt-triangles for me to practice on). My lessons are work because sewing involves a lot of things like measuring and straight lines and precision; things I’m not exactly good at. But since I want to be, I’m trying hard. I can almost sew a straight line! YAY!!!
Barefoot running, because I finally finished “Born to Run“, the book that Suzanne told me was awesome oh, about a year ago. As usual, she was right; that’s up there in one of the best books I’ve ever read – funny, clever, and chock-full of neat-o new nuggets of information. Like that shoes mess with us when we run (– shoes encourage us to run in the wrong way and don’t help our feet to strengthen). Not like I can run right now, mind you. I probably couldn’t run to save my life. But I have lovely fantasies of myself running, wearing those darling fluffy running shorts. Varicose veins be damned. Or zapped. Depending on how much money I have when I actually get to it.
On to the garden!
Little Man dug (having kids do all the work is great, huh!)
And Little Miss found her feet on the Jump-a-Roo
|this thing is FUN!|
And then Mikey jumped down to help Micah. Because Micah said he had to.
And then Micah said that was enough, he had it. All righty
Wanna see how the other stuff is doing? Here – have some tomatoes, beans, wildflowers, and assorted succulents and flowers in there now
…and he’s still digging!
And now the pond shell goes in! WOOO-HOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Let’s smooth it down
And we are DONE for the day, baby!
