Ah, spring!

Today was quite the day.  I started the day with a medical procedure for which Katie Couric would be proud of me.  It wasn't as bad as I expected, though I'm in no rush to have another one.

We had a GORGEOUS day here in Cincinnati, and I got to spend some time outside this afternoon planting seeds for the garden.  Nothing is a sign of spring like planting seeds.  Granted all of the seeds were in flats and will be indoors for a month or two until it is really time to plant them outdoors, but I sat in the sun on the back patio and sowed two kinds of eggplant, two kinds of peppers and three kinds of tomatoes.  I can almost taste the delicious eggplant parmigiana we'll be having this summer.  [Insert Homer Simpson like "Mmmmm" here.]

I've grown peppers, eggplants and tomatoes before, but never from seed so I'm really hoping this goes well.  However, I don't have a grow light so tomorrow when I go to Home Depot after mom's group to buy the towel bar and toilet paper holder for the remodeled bathroom I will be picking up a grow light.

Gardening is another one of my favorite activities - I guess like crafting it's creating/transforming something with your own hands.  And it tastes so much better too!

I also have to include these pictures of Claire from Saturday.  She was trying to put in a pair of green plastic vampire teeth left from Halloween, but had them in backward.  She was so proud of herself though.  The first picture is what happens when you tell Claire to "smile!" -she immediately closes her eyes. Every time.

  1. That is so awesome that you garden like that. I am so clueless when it comes to all that stuff. So great that you love it and get to reap the benefits!

    Also, Claire is hilarious. So cute that she closes her eyes when you tell her to smile. Such a cutie.
