I over did it… as usual just because I can do something… doesn't mean I have time to! This is a tough concept for me, because really who wouldn't want to do everything?! But the last few months of spring kicked my trash. So I took care of the things I promised I'd do, and then once school was out I've spent my time playing with my kids.
Pure silly bliss!!!
I've also be slaving away in the yard. Last summer I completely neglected it. So this summer I've been paying for my lack of weeding. However it has been fabulous!
There is something magical about blossoms, earth and fresh air!
We released a bag of 2000 lady bugs into the garden a couple nights ago. To be honest I gave into my kids relentless "please…please….PLEASE" as they goggled at the bag of bugs on the counter at the nursery. I'm so glad I submitted to their begging, in fact I'm thinking it may be a nice independence weekend tradition. Ride liked the idea of it but once one of those red polka dotted beauties crawled onto her little hand she flipped! But Momo and Scooter were in crawling critter heaven.
Little blushing lady bugs…. EVERYWHERE!
After we had a dessert of frosted patriotic sugar cookies on the porch and then went through a bag of those charcoal growing and glowing snake fireworks, my kids love those messy things.
...to all of you fabulous followers, and also to all the lady bugs in my garden!
P.S. Stay tuned, I'm back playing in my studio too!!!
