Hope everyone is having a better weekend than we are. On Friday night (of course these things always happen on Friday night), our hot water stopped working, the dishwasher stopped working and the kitchen sink won't drain...at all. So, I have to wash our dishes in cold water and then empty the water out the side door. Fun times, I tell you. Can't wait until Monday when hopefully the property management people will get back to us and get someone out here to fix everything!
Not to make this post all a downer, here is what I wore today.
The shirt is from Spiegel (formerly knwon as Newport News)
The skirt is Old Navy.
Boots are from Amazon.
I love the sleek look of all black (except the boots) but for some reason I don't usually wear it. This outfit probably could have been improved with some sort of belt or scarf, but I didn't think of that.
Elsa is being held so she doesn't destroy my little garden. I planted lettuce and Swiss chard. We transplanted containers of basil, lemon balm and chamomile that we had started indoors. And I generously gave the girls 1/2 of a container to plant a "butterfly garden" which is was part of their Botany school project.
I had extra potting mix and extra soil, so I filled up two cardboard boxes, wedged them in between those grow boxes and planted even more lettuce. Yes...I really like lettuce. I had read on the Internet that you can use sturdy cardboard to grow things, although obviously they only last one season. So...we'll see how it goes. I'm hoping that by the end of May we have a plethora of lettuce
And, now for your weekly Chesterton.
Good reminder to keep our eyes on the heavenly goal!
