Oh life, you're so full & busy right now. I suppose I had better get used to it because I don't foresee things calming down anytime soon. It's so easy to get caught up in the everyday, but today I tried to take notice, which is something I've gotten out of the habit of doing.
While supper was simmering, I took a little stroll out to the garden to check things out. My poor little neglected garden! Once the heat of the summer hit, I pretty much let it fry. A few weeks ago a cleaned it up and started some new plants. I'm excited to see the first of my little lettuce plants popping through the soil. This is the first time I've tried lettuce. Silly me, I've been checking for it in the wrong spot, where the carrots were planted. That's what I get for not marking my plants. With a garden so small, I didn't think I had to. My fall tomatoes are slowly coming in. A little small, but tomatoes nonetheless.
Homework. This school year had been a learning year for us. We lucked out with Lily, who has always done her assignments on her own. Alex, not so much. He knows his stuff, but you have to be right there with him while he works on it. And then he likes to be goofy and put down wrong answers to make sure that we're paying attention. Silly boy.
Tonight Ava was feeling a little left out, so she pulled out the spelling puzzles. She's all about letters right now. I'm so glad that she's getting some use out of these puzzles because my other kids hardly touched them.
Lemons!! Today my sister-in-law brought me all these lemons from her co-worker who has a tree full. I gladly took them. I love lemons. Y'all have any good lemon recipes to share? Sarah, I'm talking to you!
So there you have it, a glimpse at a little snippet of an evening at chez Lambert (pronounced shay lam-bear, of course).
It felt good to walk around with my camera this evening, it's been a while...
