Designing: My front garden. I am not a big gardener, but after last year’s embarrassment of a garden, I’m tearing out everything I didn’t plant, and don’t love, and doing what I can to make it something I can be proud of.
Enjoying: Crocheting. I was a knitter, but I find crocheting easier to do with a little one in tow. We were gifted a grey crocheted blanket that C loves, so I tracked down the yarn and am making her a second one. It’s a very basic stitch pattern, and I’m finding it a very good way to relax at the end of the day.
Ordering: A screen tent for C. We spend so much time outside that lugging the playpen in and out gets wearisome. I have no problem giving her free run of the backyard, but I like keeping her contained in the front yard. It’s a duck shaped pop up tent.
Celebrating: My first real Mother’s Day. I don’t know if Scott has any plans for us for the day, but we’re having my family over for a barbecue that evening (hoping that the forecast improves!).
Tasting: New recipes. We were in a recipe rut, so now we’re trying lots of new recipes. Tonight we had Gorgonzola hamburgers.
