The weekend ended on a good note, thanks to Mike. I’m an idiot. I ruined most of my Sunday. Normally, I take my vitamins and iron right after dinner. If I miss that, I eat a decent-sized snack before bedtime and take them then. (For some reason vitamins make me sick, sick, sick in the morning no matter how much I eat!)Last night, I took the vitamins without a snack (I don’t know why!). Ugh . . . I was up most of last night with a stomach ache. Mike is my hero. In exchange for me not updating him every 10 minutes on how I was feeling – he put me on the couch and promised to let me sleep in the morning. And, did I sleep – once the sun came up and the birds started singing!
While I slept, Mike and the boys worked and worked. We’re planning a garden – a big garden. We don’t plan to actually plant anything until August (Florida fall gardens are awesome). Over the summer, we’ll be working on getting the soil ready and expanding our composting efforts.
Today, the boys managed to dig out the outline of the garden and get rid of weeds and other junk. Yet, they managed to save my sunflowers! They were all filthy and tired, but it is exciting to get this big project underway. (Especially when I get to sleep through most of it!)
Since I had the camera out, I thought I would shoot some pictures of the treehouse Mike and the boys have been working on over the previous two weekends. Kind of cool, isn’t it? There are features coming, but they’re top secret and no one will tell me what they are.

And, finally, the tomatoes are coming! We stuck some tomato plants in the little herb garden we keep on the side of the house. There’s not much room and we’ve never done much to the soil, but these tomatoes rock. They are so NOT grocery store tomatoes. I want to plant a field of tomatoes and make spaghetti sauce for the world. For now, I’ll settle for our two little productive plants.
Not terribly exciting unless you’re me. But, I’m me and I find it all exciting, so there!
