Trying to feel like spring is here...

So, in a very lame attempt to feel like spring might finally be coming... I started our seeds! LOL. So far, it doesn't feel all that much like spring yet... maybe in a few weeks when things start to grow. Or, when all this crappy snow decides to go and bother someone else!

Here is a list of what was started today.
  • Extra Long Chili Peppers
  • Sweet Basil
  • Rosemary
  • Cilantro
  • Thyme
  • Oregano
  • Red Bell Pepper
  • Golden California Pepper
  • Parsley
  • Beefstake tomato
  • Small Sugar Pumpkin
  • Speckled Swan Gourd
  • Snake Gourd
  • Okra - Penta Dragon
  • White Pampass Grass
  • Cactus Novelty Mix
Yes, some of these are more for the kids than me... but I did promise they could have their own gardens this year! I am really looking forward to getting dirty this year. Last year was a bit too difficult, what with having to chase Little Man around making sure he didn't eat anything LOL. Now that he can play on his own a bit, I should be able to have some time for the Garden. Due to the bit of neglect it got last year, I am considering having someone come by to get it ready. We had asked someone to do a fall clean-up last year, but he never showed up!

Little Man was having a very cranky day today, not sure what was up, but he was not happy! It all started off first thing this morning. I gave him his toothbrush, while I brushed mine. He looked at mine, looked at his, looked at mine, looked at his, and decided that something wasn't right... and fell down on the floor screaming at me! By the time I was dressed, and ready to go downstairs, he had thrown 5 fall down fits. He had a short 45 min nap this morning, but would NOT go down this afternoon... at all... no way... even though he was a screaming disaster. I finally calmed him down with a little In the Night Garden, and was able to leave him to make dinner about 45 minutes later. Shortly after that, Monkey whispers to me that Little Man has fallen asleep! I do have pictures, but am still having problems with downloading... otherwise you could see just how cute he was slumped over on the couch. Monkey was being very sweet making sure that nothing was too loud so that Little Man could keep sleeping.

Hubby has been calling regularly so far this trip, it has been great to hear his voice every day. So far, he doesn't seem to think much of Chennai, India. It would seem that it is one of the yuckier city's in India. He did of course make the comment that he couldn't get much further away from me if he tried LOL. He's just lucky he's so far away, or he might find himself sleeping on the couch LOL.

It's time for me to deal with some laundry, as well as cut some laminating. I had some maze puzzles laminated for the boys, at least this way they can all do the mazes!
