Spring has sprung
Today we planted the garden. I've been living here in SoCal for 12+ years, and it still seems so odd to plant anything before Memorial Day. I picked up a few bags of soil and a couple tomato plants and the girls picked out a bunch of seeds. The girls (with a little help from E3) did all of the planting. E1 read all of the packages to see the depth and spacing recommended and then they planted everything. Seeds are pretty forgiving, we usually have a pretty successful garden. We have tomatoes, pea pods, carrots, watermelon, zucchini, parsley, and sunflowers. I'll pick up some potatoes and radishes to add to the mix soon.
I planted a few climbing vines along the fence on top of the hill, I hope they take root well and grow.
I've hit the gym every day this week. I didn't go at all when Stuntman was here. I didn't want to sacrifice any time with him. I gained a couple pounds over his visit, could just be hormonal, or could be because I ate more than usual, and didn't get any exercise except walking around theme parks and ummm some other type of exercise I had been missing for a year.
Monday morning brought a stack of FedEx packages to my front door. I'm back to work.... so I better get going.
