Hey, how are you? I have been missing you like crazy. I have not been here on this blog this week, seems like time just got away from me.
I have pruned bushes, pulled out dead things and replanted lots of pretty flowers. I always work on the back of my house first as that is what I see all the time. Spring is here all of the sudden in full force, it sort of took me by surprise.
I planted tomatoes, zucchini, yellow squash and lots of herbs in my garden boxes. I hope to be a bit more successful with these than in past tries.
I decorated a bit for Easter, suddenly it is March and Easter is roaring at us at lightning speed.
I made agave sweetened chocolate chip (corn and barley malt sweetened) muffins for Mr. 22. I am sending him a, "I am stuck in Columbus writing a 40 page paper for spring break while all my friends are having fun," treat box. I am filling it with fruit juice sweetened cookies from the health food store, muffins, dried apples and a few new t-shirts. That ought to lift his spirits a bit.
Little Buddy is a star! He has to wear a patch over his right eye an hour a day minimum to help it get nice and strong. Today was the first day he wore his, "pirate" patch and he did great, lasting 2 1/2 hours and never tried to take it off even once! It helped that I told him he could only play his iPad while wearing the patch, but he played with toys a bit too and also ate lunch with it on. Go Little Buddy!
I am enjoying watching my Mother and Dad's little Christmas cactus continue to bloom, I think this is it's third round. It is very happy to be taken care of.
I met my dear friend Holly for breakfast yesterday, she is such a special light in my life.
I had a meeting with Little Buddy's teachers and therapists, I am thinking he might need to stay in pre-k one more year to cook a bit. He isn't at the level his peers are in so many areas, but he is really crazy smart so that is a factor to think about. If he had been born on time he would not be going into kindergarten this year, so that is something to think about. The decision will be made in May, but it was good to get everyone's thoughts on the subject.
I also did a ton of work and paperwork this week, but who wants to see a crummy photo of that?
The weather is beautiful, low 70's, low humidity and gorgeous soft breezes. I deserve a rest, I bet you deserve one, too. Do you want to sit and chat for a bit? Come on over, the tea kettle is on.
