Starting new things is almost always a challenge. The beginning of a book is so hard for me. I always just want to know the end. But I can never force myself to read the last page. That would be cheating!
The beginning of the house process feels like it will never end. We’ve only just signed the offer and there is still so much more to do: inspection, appraisal, improvements, etc. I just want to move in already!
And now I’ve decided to start a garden. Honestly, I have no idea how to do it. But how can you ever learn if you don’t try? Lucky for me, E did all of the hard part. He shoveled all of that dirt just for me!
And Dakota helped too.
Then he got tired.
All I have to do now is buy the plants. I’m going to try all sorts of fruits and veggies. I’m trying to decide if it would be easier to just buy them from the grocery store because I don’t have very much patience. 60 days to maturity? Uhh, maybe it will be faster. I want my fresh salsa now! See. The beginning is tough. We don’t have a farmers market here, so I think it will be worth it to know that my tomatoes are free of chemicals and pesticides. I’ve heard it can be therapeutic…we’ll see.
Lately we’ve been spending a lot of time outside. The weather is amazing! And life is much slower here, which we are totally embracing.
At the Grove.
They love honey buns. Who doesn’t?
Rebecca and Sarah. I think.
Dakota likes their poo.
Tuck and Dakota.
I think Snoops won the staring contest.
