Easter Decor

 These are our Resurrection Eggs almost ready for the story telling. I am doing this lapbook type thingy to go with them. Adding more eggs/ parts to the story this year since they are getting older.

 My mom got me some fun decor from Pottery Barn (where she works) including this nest and the hanging decoupage eggs.

It's Hammock Time

Garden Update

 We just got more compost for the garden and I am hopping to plant more. I have planted cold weather veggies ( lettuce, broccoli, asparagus, onions...) but I am ready to keep going.

 These are my tiny asparagus plants just sprouting their ferns and some garlic and a huge rhubarb.
 Lots of onions.
 See our pretty peach tree. We drove by a big peach orchard yesterday and it was beautiful with all the blooms.
 Broccoli and lettuce from the winter.
 Kohl rabi. Does anyone know how to cook one? spinach and lettuce.
 My twig bed with raspberries and strawberries.
 The girls laying us 3 eggs a day now. Yea!!

 My new hedge plants.
 Flower bed
Lots of lettuce seedlings.

Date Night

I feel the need to post about a date night since it has been quite a while since we went on one. We went to a new Brazilian steakhouse called Rodzio in downtown Greenville. It was very unpretentious and delicious. If you have never been to one it is very fun. They have a salad bar and  a few hot dishes. Then bring meat on huge skewers around to your table and you can say yea or nay to a slice. The meat includes bacon wrapped filet mignon, bacon wrapped chicken, prime rib, sausage, etc.. It is all you can eat. I was amazed how fast I was full though. All those little slices fill you up.

My Accident

So while I was working on our new wall I decided to score a piece of drywall with an exacto blade. Not smart. I sliced my finger almost off down the middle. Yuck. 4 stitches in the emergency room later I have been slowed down  a bit around here. It looked/ looks much worse than it felt. It's fine now just a bit of a nuisance.

My Wall

We decided to put up a wall in our house. We are trying to do as much ourselves as possible. We had a friend who is a builder put up the frame and we put up the drywall. I have been mudding and sanding the past week and we are almost done. 

 This is one side of the wall with an office nook that will be a office/sewing area for me. (The door is not on properly. It's just propped on for privacy right now. )

 This is the other side of the wall which is a small bedroom for us. It was really hard to get a decent picture.
