The Week That Was – 5.30…

February 18th, 2013 · 6 Comments

Well I got to spend the weekend on the couch… cricked my back, who knows how and had an entire weekend collapsed on the couch… I’d like to say that I drank lots of tea and read endless books… but I napped… the entire weekend!!! And boy am I ready for Monday, for the first time in years!!! Meantime here is a Week That Was Post… Our weather tree is looking green as expected, except for some very surprising rainy days (the blue leaves).

Clearing the garden… I jest, I actually asked my boys to gather all the sticks in one spot so that we could assess which ones were the most valuable… I kid you not!!! Our garden is tiny… the stick pile gigantic!!! And each stick in an essential piece of building material!!!

We were gifted with an apple corer and we can not stop eating apples!!! Too fun!!!
