As soon as clinic was over on Friday afternoon, I jumped into my car and hit the road to drive home to see Kyle. It’s a 3 1/2 hour drive which is NO fun. I usually try to listen to a book on tape, NPR, or the John Mayer Pandora station so at least I’m learning something or singing something.
Friday night was pretty uneventful. Kyle and I watched the new episode of Scandal and Modern Family and had some ice cream (love being home at my mom’s house because there is always ice cream) 🙂
Then on Saturday Kyle went to a big high school wrestling tournament and left me home for the day. I intended to study and do laundry but in reality I slept until 2 in the afternoon… guess I needed some extra sleep?
Later in the day I eventually got my laundry done and checked some school stuff off my list… but in general it was a pretty non-productive day. That night, Kyle and I ordered a pizza, rented a movie, and finished the night off with 2 chocolate chip cookies. I wish I had taken a picture of the giant pizza so you could see how fabulous and unhealthy it was, but I was too busy eating it to bother snapping a picture!
Sunday was my one day of productivity. I drove back to Indianapolis, went to the mall to get Kyle’s Valentine’s Day present, cleaned, unpacked, and started my vegetable garden!
This will be my third year of planting veggies and flowers that I grow from seeds!
I start them indoors 8-10 weeks before I intend to plant them outside. I’ve found that if you wait until April or May to plant them outside, the seeds will take so long to grow that you won’t get veggies until September or October.
By starting them indoors, you get a head-start and will have fruit earlier in the season.
I have used these Jiffy starter green houses each year and they never fail me!
You water the pellets and they expand. Then you can plant seed in each one, cover the green house top, and wait for them to grow!
This year I choose flowers, vegetables, and herbs.
Sunday also happened to be a day for presents! I had 2 huge packages waiting for me outside when I got home. One package was from Designer Whey!
I can’t wait to try everything and tell you all about it. Stay tuned!
The best present came from my mom- 2 new pairs of Tom’s!!
She told me she wanted to get me some for Valentines and couldn’t decide which pair she liked best and so she got both!
How lucky am I?
Okay sorry for the completely random post today… hope you had a wonderful weekend!
Do you wear Tom’s shoes?
Did you have any big unhealthy meals like pizza this weekend?
Do you have a vegetable or flower garden?
