When Brett went off on a business trip with my laptop (aka: command central for all blogging activity) I wasn't too concerned. After all, it was only supposed to be for a few days. When it became apparent that the trip was going to be extended, I started to get a bit itchy and twitchy. Ha! I guess that's what happens when the blogging groove is interrupted for too long. The next best thing was to keep snapping the moments. Like a shot from Mother's Day which also happened to be my two son's birthdays. Lots to celebrate that day :D.
Right after that I had a visit from an eager little helper.
Each morning he was all too happy to help me keep up with the lettuce harvest.
He has a great work ethic except for the occasional slowing of production to observe a passing jet.
Much to my delight the first blooms of the "Double Delight" rose appeared.
As did the first hydrangeas.
Meanwhile, my little helper happily fed Peanut every day.
Gotta love their enthusiasm at this age.
In the kitchen, great amounts of vegetables were prepped and consumed.
And many new-to-me recipes and ingredients were put to the test.
Here a sweet potato pie with an oatmeal/pecan based crust met with rave reviews.
My interest in a whole food approach to eating was just intensified after completing this workshop . So well done by Heather who has the lovely blog Beauty That Moves.
Now that the hubby has returned with the laptop, I plan to get around to visit with you. I feel hopelessly behind at this point, but will do my best to catch up.
