In the Summer Kitchen

It’s been quiet here in the land of blogging, but busy, busy, busy here in our house.  My summer moments have been so fully packed with both boys at home and I’m equally reveling in this time with Levi before Kindergarten starts and counting down the days!  We’ve been creative in the kitchen lately and I thought I’d invite you…

At Home Holiday

A little bunny paid a visit to our house yesterday and he almost got caught!  Michael and I had JUST finished hiding the lot of eggs around the house when minutes later Levi woke up to use the bathroom.  Once this child is asleep, he very rarely wakes up…except on this night.  Even in his sleepy-eyed slumber, he spotted an…

Around the Yard

It’s been slow going around these parts.  Coming home from vacation threw me off completely and it’s taken more than a week to get caught up with laundry and unpacking.  I kind of felt like the mouse from the book, “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie”…every task at hand led me right into a totally new and different direction…

Boxes of Dirt

On Saturday Michael and I woke up and decided it was time to take some big steps in the garden. With our weekends being taken up by either rain, (or in this case a holiday) we needed to harness as much energy as we could to get things moving in the right direction.  We borrowed a friend’s pick up truck…

Growing in the Garden

This morning after breakfast, we suited up in rain gear and headed outside to take advantage of this sunny (albeit chilly at first) day. It poured buckets here in Napa yesterday and our garden was good and muddy from all the rain. With Michael only able to get a good day’s work of gardening in on the weekend, we need…
