Weedin' and Readin'
It must be summer vacation because I either spend all day reading, or in the yard because the weather has been so nice!
I've just finished reading "The Little Giant of Aberdeen County" by Tiffany Baker
and really enjoyed it. Now I'm reading "Abigail and John: A Portrait of a Marriage" by Edith B. Gelles.......so I've gone from "entertaining fiction" to "historical romance" (tee-hee).
What's on your summer reading list? Any suggestions for my next trip to the library?
And when I'm outside......
We've had some sunny days, and some rainy ones. But the rain DOES makes everything green; including the weeds! So we've been pulling weeds, transplanting plants, and putting in our veggie garden.
And if the squirrels and birds don't enjoy them before we do, we will have four varieties of tomatoes (my husband is a tomato fanatic!), cucumbers, squash, carrots, beans, and zucchini. Here are a few photos of the newly planted veggie garden.
The herb garden has loved the rain and looks so full and green. Lana showed me these cute plant/flower/herb stakes online the other day, so I had my son make some for my herb garden.
He really enjoys making them....LOTS of pounding and hammering on metal (must be a "guy" thing), and a great outcome for me: cute name stakes!
Ok, now I'm off to read some blogs!
