Our garden growing wonderfully. We are enjoying our spinach, lettuce, and radishes right now. It's funny how my little one only likes "outside spinach" or lettuce as she calls it. She'll eat it if it's freshly picked. I can't wait for our cucumbers, onions, strawberries, raspberries, tomatoes, peppers, snow peas, zucchini, broccoli, and carrots - I think I got them all down! We have quite the crop of strawberries, which are just starting to turn pink. I may even try to make strawberry jam this year. Mmm...

Inspired by Natalie and a few other bloggers, the beginning of each month I'll share a few of my goals for that month. I usually make a long to-do list for myself, but for here I'll just share a few simple goals.
For June, I'd love to...
- take Sara to a beach or outdoor pool, something she has yet to experience
- attend an outdoor craft show
- finish remodeling my old dollhouse- soon to be Sara's dollhouse

Is is already June? I didn't think I would be away as long as I was. May was a busy month. There was a lot of gardening, playing outside, time making macrame, enjoying new bikes, and spring cleaning. But, most important was that my daughter turned four years old! Time truly does just fly by.
I think the time away from here was good for me. I feel more motivated to blog now- I kind of missed this. Thank you for sticking with me :)

This week we've been spending as much time outside as possible. There's been a lot of trips to the garden store, our first picnic, and visits to the park. Carrots, lettuce, radishes, snow peas, onions, and spinach have been planted in our garden. Oh, and herbs. We're off to a pretty good start. Now we are working on our landscaping and lawn. So much to do, May is going to be a very busy month!

Last week was a tough week. Both with things at home and events happening in our country. A new week with a fresh start is what I need. We're finally going to have warmer weather later this week. A big hooray! There will be a lot of time spent at the park and in our garden. This year we are far behind in our planting. It will feel great to at last get it started.
I have finished two macrame plant hangers that I will be listing in my shop this week. I created a new design, a medium length hanger. I think it's just the right size. I hope to make several more in that size soon, and in some new colors.

We had perfect spring weather on Sunday, it was wonderful! I did some yard work and cleaned the garage. I put a large empty box in the yard for my little one and she had fun pretending it was her boat. Boxes can be so entertaining!
It's going to rain the entire week and I have a little one with spring fever who's stuck inside. I'm trying my best to find fun things for us to do.
I hope you are having a great day!

Even though there is still snow on the ground, it really feels like spring. We spent part of our morning in our backyard. Sara had a blast digging in the dirt in our garden. We all can't wait for it to get warm enough to plant our garden.
She's napping right now, thank goodness. There were three days this week she did not nap. Boy, I really rely on her nap time to get things done. Tomorrow we're dying eggs (using the Kool-Aid way again) and maybe going to an Easter egg hunt. Fun times!
I hope you have a nice Easter!
