Springy Spring

Ah life in bloom. I started my first official herb garden for this summer at my home. I really hope that I can become a woman who grows her own herbs and has a wonderful garden. I want it to eventually resemble "The Secret Garden", and we have a long long LONG way to go before we get there. I have never really gardened before besides house plants, but the excitement that I have that my Jasmine plant is still alive is testament to fate. So basically, when it comes to gardening, I am a 2nd grader wondering what I will wear to my prom. So I am starting little. I figure a small sensory herb garden is a good start. This way if it doesn't grow I am not too disapointed, but if it does, the kids will have a nice collection of plants to sniff, touch and taste this summer. I have started by getting a small plastic green house at walmart. I then bought seeds and followed the directions to a T. So far I have Cilantro, Lavender and Mint growing. Basil is looking a bit more lazy, lets hope she doesn't decide to skip the party. I should have them in the ground outside eventually it is looking like. So wish me luck!

Oh blog.. how I missed you!

I did not enjoy the fact that best buy said I would have my cord on tuesday, and that I did not get it till friday. Not Fun! I felt really cut off from the world, only getting about 1 hour max a day of online time to check emails in the basement, I really missed being able to talk to my other mommy friends sporadically during the day, such as nap time. However I did get allot of things done during the day! Special name tags for the play room for all of my day care kids, a spring cleaning list started, my herb garden is planted in a small seed green house.. ahh so much done! I have been brainstorming one blog for the past week and I still feel that it is not completely done in my head... I just need to write it! but for now. attending to the tantruming toddler is what is on my plate.

I am not ignoring you..

my laptop cord died and I can only get online via the basement PC.. so my net time is restricted to when my son is sleeping and I am not working. Not fun for me, but I have gotten allot done around my house. I have a few nice commentaries coming up once I am back up and running..first order of business, my incense, second Bubbles.
