Thinking Spring

>> Saturday, March 23, 2013

The garden planning ranks such a high priority, I passed up a TJ Maxx shopping day just to get the planning and seeds ordered.

This is the 2013 vertical garden. I am experimenting with using plants that grow and trail and those that row upright as well as companion plants to ward off pests.

Bottom row, cucumers to grow and trail, with marigolds planted at their base to deter beetles.
Determinate tomatoes on the next row with basil plants at their roots to keep them cool.
Eggplant is on the next row to trail between the tomatoes with pepper plants growing up between them.
Next rows are cabbages and broccoli seperated by cilatro, mint, and dill.
The top will be horseradish.  Just Waiting...........

Welcome to the first day of the second half of winter in Wisconsin!!!


Vacay Day 6

>> Sunday, March 17, 2013

This is the  last day of vacation that one revels in, because tomorrow is back to work.

Today is spent throwing caution to the wind.

Do nothing.

Eat ice cream.

Exercise, because I must.


Vacay Day 5

Slept in late

Another beautiful day!

Coconut lime verbena in the air.

Enjoying the warm sun.

Mango and strawberry slices tossed with yogurt, topped with chopped pistachios for lunch.

A movie for the evening. Skyfall it is!

(Sorry Don, Daniel Craig is pretty good to look at).

Day 4 - another spectacular day spent at The Wilderness Hotel, Wisconsin Dells

Swimming and sunning until some of us were worn out.


Vacay Day 3

Skipped over to Wisconsin Dells. A GREAT deal online. $130 for our family to stay in two bedroom at the Wilderness Resort (waterpark passes included).

After dinner Cammie and I had coffee by the pool while the boys relaxed. Don't ask about the scary girl behind me. :0(

Beach Vacay, Day 1

>> Wednesday, March 13, 2013

The plan was to take off early Tuesday am for an impromptu beach vacation, just Don and I, and then Monday night the orders started coming in... And Beach vacation now has become a virtual one. 

How I spent vacay day 1:

Slept in
sea salt pedicure, and bright orange nail polish
3 mile run
Lean steaks with red wine and salad for supper

A good start.
