Watering the Weeds

Well, my desire to be a gardener did not just instantly improve my very poor gardening skills. I guess that’s not surprising.

The best part so far, in fact, has been Lola being so cute about the whole thing. On Sunday, I finally got my beans in (and am likely to have to replant them, because apparently that one inch depth thing was not just a meaningless suggestion), and then Lola ran around in her overalls with her elephant watering can, watering the weeds, the trees, her swing set, and one small part of the middle of the lawn.

Please ignore the fact that Corbin started pooping in the tub (I swear I tried to think of a euphemism to make that less off-putting) right as I was in the middle of trimming Lola’s bangs. And I may have gotten a teensy bit distracted and sort of did a bad job.

Zoku Opening Day

It’s popsicle season, folks!

Well okay, it’s real hit or miss still on the weather, but there are some popsicle days. I kicked it off this year with chocolate and peanut butter stripe pops. I actually followed a Zoku endorsed recipe, even. Which was considerably more complicated and putzy than my usual “purée fruit and add some liquid” approach. But they were outstanding!

Except, moms of girls, see the problem with our Popsicle time last night? I forgot to tie her hair back. I’m so sick of her hair being completely stuck together all the time!

Also, our property has a new inhabitant.

A very cute and tiny inhabitant. We have a bunny hole right by the house, but I’ve only seen one little guy. I don’t know if there are more in there or not. But I’m pretty stoked anyway.

Here, also, is a picture of Lola that I meant to post a while ago. I got home, and she looked like this:

And when I told her I wanted to grab my camera, she ran and got hers too and insisted we take turns taking pictures of each other. It was cute. Look how grown up that kid is! I can’t take it! I miss THIS little girl so much:

Happy Weekend, everyone. 🙂
