Oh, Happy Day

Got out early, in the sunshine, and planted my garden. Felt so good. I save space for tomatoes. I might plant some corn, too. Today I planted lettuce, cucumber, zucchini, eggplant, peppers, chard, sweet peas and strawberries plus several herbs. I planted carrot, radish and green bean seeds.

This bed has herbs and lettuce and the strawberries.


Another view. My beds are triangular because of the weird shape of the yard.


Here is the tumbler composter which is cooking away.


Look, I already have a strawberry.


I was also excited to find several buds on the peony I planted last year.


Miss Mia came by after school to hang out with me. We practiced sewing on the Janome sewing machine. She loves to do the fancy stitches. Look how grown up she is becoming.


I cooked a delicious pork tenderloin with pineapple and Asian seasonings in the crockpot and the whole family had dinner here.

It was such a beautiful, bright day, so I took advantage and photographed a bunch of quilts that I want to get on my website. I also have to send better photos of the two quilts going to Sacred threads in June.

While Mia was sewing, I started a second scrap piece, but didn’t have time to finish it.

Tomorrow, I finally get to have my eye exam and select new glass frames. Woo hoo!

That is about all there is to report from my happy day.

    Love your garden! I was gardening too, but mainly pulling weeds, which I detest!
    Mia is absolutely knock-your-socks-off GORGEOUS! Oh, sigh, and so grown up! (Oh, now I look up and see Connie’s comment that Mia is gorgeous……..well, like minds we are!!).


  2. Hi Gerrie,

    Glad to read that you feel so good in the garden, in the sun. And indeed, Mia is becoming a beautiful young lady, she has such a content face in this picture. Must be a real joy to you!
