Weekend Recap

Before Mono struck me like a brick wall, I had planned on finishing up our garden this weekend.  So while I was downing fluids, my mom, Conor, & Liam got their green thumb on!  I had already planted all my flowers in my front beds, but my pots for the back deck were still unfinished.  My mom knows what I like (mostly purples & whites), so she made a trip to the nursery and picked out some beautiful stuff for them.  I love how they turned out; she did a much better job than I would have.  I'm a still learning from the master...  Now to wait and watch everything fill in!

Meanwhile Conor built a huge planter box for the backyard!  The man is skilled!  Most of backyard is shaded (which is wonderful when the temps are consistently in the 90s & 100s), but that makes it difficult to have a big vegetable garden.  He built the planter in a portion of our yard that gets full sun, so I think it will thrive.  Tomatoes, herbs, beans, carrots, garlic, onions, zucchini, lettuce, & everything in between, oh my!  Once again, my mom threw in her expertise (like adding marigolds to keep the bugs off your veggies) & Liam supervised.

They also hit up the first farmer's market of the season!  I was so sad to miss this as I had been looking forward to it!  They snatched up some fresh pastries, produce, & farm eggs while Liam "pet the body" of many little animals!  

Thanks for all your well wishes last week!
I am feeling a bit better each day & hoping to have a full recovery in record timing.


  1. So sorry to hear you got mono!! Can't even imagine as a mom, we aren't allowed to get sick! ;). Feel better!!!

  2. Liam looks like such a big boy with his hair cut!!! Hope you get all better soon so you can join in on the fun!

  3. Glad you are starting to get a bit better. Take it day by day! Are you able to nurse with the mono?

  4. Glad you're feeling better! What a sweet family to work on your garden for you while you are sick. And what awesome veggies you will have once things start growing! My brother-in-law is obsessed with gardening and grows the best veggies!

  5. Love this! Please send your mom over here to offer us some advice on our gardens! Right now we have a giant planter out front that Mac uses as a worm farm with nothing growing in it! We need help! :) Anyway, glad you're feeling better. Take care of yourself, mama!

  6. Everything looks amazing! I would love to have a little veggie garden one day but I have lots to learn in the gardening department :) Glad you're feeling better - slowly but surely you'll be back to your normal self!


I love reading all your comments!
