{pretty, happy, funny, real} - The Spring Edition

I have a sick big boy at home, so this will be pretty short this week.  I didn't want to completely disappear again, though.


I love these pretty yellow flowers that popped out in my garden a few days ago.

Miss Elizabeth has made the developmental jump to walk-first, crawl-when-I-fall.  It makes me happy because, at a year old it's time and means she's growing as she should.  It makes me sad because she looks so darn big doing it - what happened to my baby?!


This is sad-funny.  This is my sewing table right now.  Apparently I thought that if I took my whiteboard and made a list of things I need to finish and mend, and then sat it by my machine, that would shame me into getting to things.  Yeah, it's not really working.


My pretty yellow flowers in the garden - they're on the broccoli.  I have no idea what happened there.  I planted about 30 broccoli seeds, and this is the only one that came up.  It went from having a tiny head (maybe 5 florets) of broccoli to this in a few days.  Clearly my gardening skills still need a lot of work.  I'm thinking I'll just bring the stalks in and put them in a vase and enjoy them.  I'm sure the broccoli is not edible now that it's shot to flower.

I have a bunch of other things to put up, but I have to go get Patrick from school and then we'll see how everyone's feeling.  Hope everyone has a great weekend!

  1. A couple comments/observations:
    1. you mend Patrick's underwear?
    2. love the single decorative pitcher above the cabinets - you rock
    3. what on earth is going on with that broccoli? I didn't think flowers could grow there unless they were attached to cacti, and you manage to grow them out of your broccoli?

    Love you!

    1. Haha!

      1. No, I don't normally mend undies, but these are Patrick's favorite SuperWhy pants and the elastic is falling apart.
      2. I'm pretty sure you put that pitcher up there when you came to visit last summer. Aren't you glad it sparked such a flurry of decorating?
      3. Yeah, I don't get the broccoli either - it's now looking pretty in a glass on my windowsill. Better luck this summer with tomatoes I hope.

  2. In your first photo, I thought the flowers were somewhat like a hollyhock, but it's broccoli! LOL
    Hope your son will be better soon.

  3. Better broccoli flowers than nothing at all!

  4. Thanks for joining! Your little girl is so cute!
