The miracle of fresh air

11th April 2009

The miracle of fresh air

Ever since I knew that my in-laws were to be visiting for a couple of weeks around Easter, I started planning the projects. They’re project people, like to be busy and help out wherever they can. Last time they visited in October my father-in-law did a bunch of electrical work that has improved our home immensely. This visit is earmarked for gardening, lots of it.

We’ve spent the last couple days pulling weeds, preparing soil, measuring, planning, building boxes. Today we have been buying plants and planting them. We’ve chosen fun things like yellow bell tomatoes, cantaloupe, honeydew, butternut squash, among other standards like cherry tomatoes, zucchini, and bell peppers. Oddly enough we found absolutely no lettuce or spinach seedlings and no seeds either! I’m puzzled.

During all this gardening the children have been outside with us, digging and squishing snails and squirting each other with the hose. The result has been dirty, wet, happy, and very tired children. We postponed naptime until about 2:30 today, which is far past our normal naptime.  When we put Little Boy down (after he had a trip to Lowe’s with Daddy and Granddad) he was out like a like and slept until just past 4pm. The girls also both had a sleep without any fuss. Cutie, the 3yo, didn’t sleep as soundly because she’s got a hacking cough which I believe is allergy related.  But I believe that bedtime tonight will be very quiet and somewhat early.

Note to self: make sure to water new plants and make sure the kids play outside as much as possible!

Note to readers: the allergies of which I spoke yesterday? I believe they might be caused by the pollen coming from the Easter Lily that Handsome brought home on Thursday. I had it on the counter in the kitchen and I spend a lot of time in the kitchen. When I left the house for a couple hours this morning I was feeling much better. So, I’ve removed the offender from the kitchen and I might just have to give it away to my neighbour.
