Melanie and I just planted our second round of seeds. Today was green bell peppers, jalapeƱos, camomile, tarragon, summer savory, columbine, golden coneflower, Shasta daisies, and we are soaking some lupine seeds for tomorrow. Brent is getting worried about how much space we might need out in the garden. I also made our list of what to start outside when the time is right to make sure we don't forget anybody. Now I just have to plan out where all these little plants will go to grow and feed us.

We also got Melanie's birthday all planned out and invitations written. Party supplies are half bought. Tinker bell will be the theme with a flower cake for a little Tink figurine to sit on. The kids will all get a recycled hot cocoa container wrapped and filled with goodies.

Homemade bread is pulling ahead of store bought finally. I had to concede to 50/50 white flour to wheat flour. Last night I added a bunch of cinnamon for some breakfast bread. The girls are crazy about it. They ate it warm last night and then toasted today. We are on a roll. Which is good since I was getting tired of the question "is this store bought" before now maybe they will actually decide homemade is better.

Crocheting is taking a back burner to garden starts but it is getting somewhere slowly.
