As if having four pets didn't keep me busy enough, I also planted quite a bit of new stuff in my backyard garden this year. I can't wait until harvest time. Last year I had so many homegrown bell peppers & tomatoes that they were coming out our ears. I planted quite a bit this year: Brussels Sprouts, Better Boy Tomatoes, Bell Peppers (Red, Yellow & Green), White Eggplant, Zucchini Squash, Cilantro & Basil. I also planted a few very pretty pre-annuals like red carnations & yellow day-lilies.
A few months ago I found out that my Aunt & Uncle out in California are going to have a baby! I'm going to have a baby cousin. I was so excited to find that out. A few weeks later, they told us that it is going to be a boy! I got to work right away on a baby blanket & I even had enough yarn left over to make the most ADORABLE hat & booties. They were mailed out this weekend & are on their way to a new home. Hopefully I will have pictures to share of my baby cousin in them after he is born, for now, here are the pictures I took of them upon completing them. :)
So, that's my life as of now... More LB (Life Blogs) to come. :) Thanks for reading!
