We went to Bangor on Wednesday, me and my three youngest. I wish we had a Target much, much closer:) I bought some more tomato plants and we will plant them with the rest as soon as it stops raining. We also got some more green pepper plants. I think we use green pepper in almost everything, along with onions. I would love to learn how to grow my own herbs someday too.
Lets see a few more days of school left, my kidlets get one week off and then we start summer school, which I am looking forward to this year, I feel like I am more prepared.
We are waiting for Joff to finish school (one more year!) to build our house and something I love to do is research house plans and draw house plans. A few things that Joff and I have decided are must haves after years of talking about it: A central chimney for a wood-stove, an open floor plan and a bathroom as close to the back door as possible! Amazingly enough the square footage of my house has actually shrunk, I used to think bigger was better and with eight of us I was sure 4000 square feet would just barely be enough, now I am convinced something in the 1600-1800 range is much better, the problem I have found with most house’s and all modular/trailers is the lack of a design that utilizes as many square feet as possible, so I am determined to have it laid out just right.
This morning I was lazy and and puttered around the house, doling out snacks and kisses to the wee ones in between washing the table and surfing the internet and doing laundry, now my floors need to be swept and I will get around to it before the end of the day, but right now I am chatting with Elli who has picked up Alice’s favorite thing to say…..”Oh my word” .
“If you don’t know [your family’s] history, then you don’t know anything. You are a leaf that doesn’t know it is part of a tree” Michael Crichton
“Being happy doesn’t mean that everything is perfect. It means that you’ve decided to look beyond the imperfections.”
“Don’t wait. The time will never be just right.” Napoleon Hill
That last one applies to most everything, I need to have it printed and hung somewhere.
