Camp Life

During Spring Break we were able to spend some time in nature, camping on the Illinois River. The first night was really rough with a campsite delivery (The Mobster) from Gambino's.

Subtlety

My yard is so full of weeds already that it's hard to find the beauty.  It's there in some obvious ways.

Hip Hop

This morning, I am all into "hops" as I am preparing myself mentally to grow hops this year. Not a lot, just 3 little manageable plants that I ordered from The Thyme Garden.

I mentioned on my blog (3 years ago!!) that I wanted to grow hops and it's on my Living List, so that means I'm serious now.

I have been eyeballing a location that hasn't gotten much use over the past few years.

Fast and Full (and Fabulous) February

As per usual, February has been a busy month.  This year we had more than the usual stuff scheduled. Scott made a life long dream come true by taking the Little Ones to the Monster Truck show.
