Daybook Entry #3



For Today ... May 25th, 2015
 

Outside my window ...  it is another beautiful sunny day with just enough breeze blowing to help cope with the warmer temperatures.
 

I am thinking ... of those whom I know that have given their lives for our country as I pray for their loved ones.
 

I am thankful ... for my mama and the early birthday card she sent me because she was afraid she would forget!  I totally understand it mama!
 

I am creating ... a list of sewing projects to work on each Tuesday … the day I’ve set aside each week to sew!  Last week’s sewing day was a huge success and the sense of accomplishment I felt was so rewarding.  I didn’t complete any big projects but had lots of fun working on a couple of smaller ones.
 

I am going ...  nowhere!  Our vehicle is the shop for repairs.
 

I am wondering ... how much the repairs will cost!!!!  Yikes, glad I have a well-stocked pantry and don’t have to worry about choosing between buying groceries and the needed vehicle repairs!
 

I am reading ... about how this lady and this lady creates beautiful gift tags. 

I am seeing … my husband in the kitchen preparing dinner while I rest my knee.  I am a blessed woman!
 

I am hearing … the dishwasher running … I am so happy to have a dishwasher!
 

I am hoping ... to find online a free pajama bottom pattern for little boys, size 18 months.  I would just use a pair of his pants that he currently wears to make a pattern from but he lives 12 hours away.  I have some Mickey Mouse fabric just waiting to be turned into cute pajama bottoms for him and I do believe I promised that young man a Mickey Mouse pillow case for his pillow.  I love sewing for my grandbabies!
 

I am learning ... how to smock.  I took a class many, many years ago when my girls were little and did some smocking but feel like I need a refresher course.  I have a video series that I’ve had for a while that I think will refresh my memory and help me get back to smocking. 
 

In my garden ... I got our ‘walking onions’ separated and replanted.
 

In my kitchen …. I need to get those burlap curtains stitched up and hung in place of the missing doors in my lower kitchen cabinets.  (A portion of our kitchen cabinets were recycled from a neighbors barn where they had been sitting for quite a while … he was going to throw them away.)  I painted the cabinets black and the burlap panels will compliment them well.
 

One of my favorite things ... early morning walks in my yard and garden.  It is such a peaceful time of the day for me.
 

Around the house … I finally got the winter clothes pulled out of the closet and dresser drawers and put away until they are needed again next winter.
 

A scene from my day … ripening raspberries!

Garden Walkthrough: May 25th




For our garden walk through this time we're going to focus on the garden we're sharing with a friend and neighbor...
 
 


Everything is growing by leaps and bounds, the potatoes are blooming, the tomatoes have little green babies, the squash is putting on little baby squash too, some of the pepper plants have blooms and little baby peppers and the cabbage is starting to head. To the far left, okra is planted, more tomatoes, lima beans and onions.  You can tell which part of the garden was planted first!



 
A little closer look at the cabbage and tomatoes ...we had to add the second tier of bailing twine to the tomato stakes. The  tomatoes are really growing!  To the left of the tomatoes is the squash, it's really grown a lot this past week as well! 
 
To the right of the cabbage are the potatoes ... it won't be long before we'll be digging potatoes!
 
We'll be harvesting from this garden long before the other two which is good because if all three of them needed harvesting at the same time ... we would be in trouble!!!!
