A Tree Grows In Brooklyn

A great book. I love a greatly detailed book and any read that lets me take a step back in time. Beauty and determination are good things.

Growing lettuce or a salad

                                lettuce in our EarthBox has grown really well using Ferry Morse seeds

                            so well that I thinned it to make room for other veggies that are growing.

 After washing. We have enjoyed salads and lettuce on sandwiches. Tiny tender leaves...yummy!

Project: Trash Bench

Hubby brought home some scrap wood from the dump. He's not going to let good wood products go to waste. Why? Because he knows I'll make something out of it! I love it most when I'm creative. So out came the tools and a "trash bench" was born!

Repurposing any item that is landfill bound is a great thing! A little cleaning up for Mother Nature and a nice free bench to boot!

Mother's Day

card by JJ

Wonderful Mother

God made a wonderful mother,

A mother who never grows old;

He made her smile of the sunshine,

And He moulded her heart of pure gold;

In her eyes He placed bright shining stars,

In her cheeks fair roses you see;

God made a wonderful mother,

And He gave that dear mother to me.
