Hanging in the Backyard with a Ladybug

This has been a busy month so far.......

Safi had a little fever at the beginning of the month that seemed to drag on and her running nose kept her down awhile so we spent some quiet time inside playing with trains and laying low.

Safi and Chris have built some really cool tracks and we have even had to go back to the store for more tracks.  Chugga Choo Choo!!

Mother's day was just around the corner so I went out for a cooking class with my friend Linda while Chris and Safi did a little sneaking around.  I was gone for a couple of hours and came back after bedtime.  Let's just say Daddy was glad to see Mommy!!!  The stories slowly came out about how Safi got out the front door (she was completely naked at the time) and ran around the side of the house and was pounding on the gate yelling "MOMMA, MOMMA, MOMMA!!"  Something about peeing in the backyard, and I'm sorry your Mother's Day present didn't come out how it was supposed to, but it is really hard crafting with a two year old.  Chris didn't have any trouble falling asleep that night ;)

My first Mother's Day was wonderful, Safi woke up at 6:00am, I rolled over and asked Chris to go whisper some sweet nothings to her and make her go back to sleep.  He said, "I'll just go put some rum in her milk cup and all will be good." Then he rolled over.  Chris did go and deal with her and I got to sleep in a bit more.  It was a wonderful day spent with my family, I am so blessed.

This week we have celebrated Jules' birthday, finished recuperating, worked in the yard, continued with the job search, and just all around had a good time.  Life is good.  The garden is growing and the flowers that Safi and I planted from seed are beginning to bloom. 

The Zinnias all have blooms on them!! I can't wait to have fresh cut flowers in the house again!!

The potatoes are growing like weeds, "Night, Night, eat ya later!"


Before and After......These strawberries are gone by the way, Safi ate them as soon as I took the picture :)

The mimosa tree is growing and full of blooms!  The lilacs are going crazy as well!!

Yummy Squash is just around the corner :)


Yes, we will have a bumper crop of Cucumbers again this year, but they will be on a trellis, not laying on the ground

Bell peppers! The ladybugs have been hanging out around here :)
This afternoon we hung out in the backyard and enjoyed the beautiful day.....

 And then we starting swinging.......

So Safi was squirting me with the water bottle, I didn't have a water bottle, but I did have a cup of ice water :)  So I put a piece of ice down her pants :)))

 I got the ice out for her........
 Then she ate it :(

 Then I got out the new pool and blew it up. As I was finishing I look over and Safi has taken her pants and undies off and is trying to get in the pool. I asked her if she wanted to go swimming, "Yes" So we set the pool up with the slide slipped on a swimsuit and Safi went to town.  She played in the pool and on the slide for at least another 30-45 minutes.
