I have been reading every garden blog and online resource I can this week about what shrubs and plants I should plant in my backyard. I know I am always trying to learn something new, all the time. If only I had more time and more space in my brain to learn it all. I am the ‘ultimate’ newbie at everything. I did make a spare five minutes to have a peak at a celebrity magazine this week which was the first time I had done that in months. It may have been in the doctors office but at least it was a sneaky peak.
Last week was the start of “Person of Interest”. Mr P and I really got into it on the second season last year and I didn’t think the UK was going to bring it back but I am glad it did. A lot of the drama shows are all very similar but this one is different and complex, one of the many reasons I really like it. Although it is hard to just jump in one or two episode if you haven’t started from the beginning.
My lovely son walked over to me while I was wearing shorts the other day and reached over and rubbed one of my legs. In a hello Mommy way, until I saw the look of utter disgust on his face. What’s wrong I asked? Thinking he was upset about something. “Mommy, your leg hurt me, it’s all spiky? What’s wrong with it?” I couldn’t stop laughing. Yes, I admit I have been a little busy lately and I blame the cold weather it’s my extra warmth layer. Clearly even at two my son has great expectations.
This week I whipped up an easy family favorite, Sloppy Joes w/ Beef & Beans. Not sure who loved it more Buba or Missy Moo but I know Mr P and I really enjoyed it. I used to make it alot but haven’t for awhile. It’s fast, easy, and cheap! Click the picture for the recipe if you want to try it out yourself.
I am obsessed with Missy Moo’s white headband. She has been strutting for weeks now and it’s finally getting to the point I need the next size up. Now that she is finally getting some hair, I think she will be a blondie through and through too.
I am on a mission to save a few pennies, no make that A LOT of pennies and do my own backyard landscaping. This week I have been tackling the fence with stain. It was a big job and I was so sad to see when it dried that it needs another coat. I need the weather to buck up so I can finish it but it’s discouraging to see the forecast is all rain for the next week! Boo. I hate when I start a project and can’t finish it. I have a goal to get the edging cut, the stones in, and all the shrubs and plants planted before I leave for America for two months at the end of June. Not much time and a lot of work to do but I am determined to work even in the rain if I have to.
