Let's Play Catch Up

I've had plenty of brilliant posts to share.....
Something always gets in the way....
Probably because it's a pain to download photos....
And then there's always the stuff I don't want to share....

So here's a brief recap of life at this Madwoman's place of abode.

Pretending it's really fall....even though the high that day was 100..

First visits to the pumpkin patch.....
Cooking like Pioneer Woman.
Seriously, her pan fried potatoes are DELISH.
I picked up her cookbook at Walmart....(at a discounted price of course)
Watching my newly sprouted seeds grow!!
These guys sprouted in less than a week.
It still fills me with utter amazement.

Fall gardening! The green beans are beginning to flower-hoping to get a nice crop before it gets too "cold."
Just planted cabbage, bok choy, lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower, one tomato plant, (here's hoping!), lots of greens, kale, spinach and swiss chard.  Yet to be planted....more carrots, onions, potatoes, peas....Walking into the nursery this time of year fills me with joy........


Still going to lots of swim meets, but we are on the downhill side.
Last home meet next week.
Then on to city and hopefully qualifying for the state meet.
 Chasing one year olds......

Celebrating birthdays.......
Enjoying the Hispanic culture......

Working on baby quilts.....
Starting to plan Christmas presents....
With a trip to Utah thrown in for good measure.
Just life in general.
Which is never caught up......

Phew, this post left me feeling tired! :) What a busy lady you are! Lovely looking garden. Do you use the prepared square foot gardening compost that I have seen being sold in stores or do you mix your own?
