Okay-here it is.
The final photo of the month.
It was fun.
Glad you came along for the ride.
To see my mundane life.

22 years ago today I gave birth to this adorable bright-eyed baby boy.
I can't believe he's WAY taller than me now and
I am about to lose my place as his best girl......
But that's okay.
His new best girl is AWESOME!
Happy Birthday m'hijo!

See this sign?
There are supposed to be beans growing.
No, the green in the back is onions.
No, the green on the right is a tomato plant.
Why are there no beans?
Because the !@#$%^ birds are eating them!

Six months ago today my baby boy left on his mission.
In some ways, it feels like longer.
In other ways, it feels like he just barely left.
He's made so much progress.
And it's been exciting to watch!
Can't wait to see what the next six months will bring.....

Happy Birthday to My First born!
I think you turned out awesome.
Considering the fact that you were your parent's guinea pig.
Have a Happy Day!
P.S. I'm going to keep using this photo until you give me another one!
Cuz I think it's cute.

Writing the English titles in TL's Spanish hymnbook.
So now he doesn't have to guess what the song is until he hears the music.
Did that in mine years ago.
Because I had to practice leading for an hour each week
To prepare to do it in church.

Grocery Shopping Day.
A necessary evil.
It's not too bad, generally.
It's just that you have to put everything away when you get home.
And that's sometimes the toughest part.
Especially if you have screaming babies and hungry toddlers.
(been there-done that)

My faithful companion at church every Sunday.
Everyone asks me where I'm going.
But I need to haul around a pile of stuff every Sunday.
Notebook, scriptures, manuals, hymnbook.
In both languages.
And this saves a broken back.
En que puedo servirle?
(how may I serve you?)

This is all the garden waste
That has been sitting in our composter for months
Not sure if it has been done correctly
But it smells good-like dirt-
And I'm hoping my soil and plants will love it.....

I'm used to cooking for an army.
Except that now the army either doesn't live here.
Doesn't show up to eat.
Or is on a crazy diet where he drinks shakes all day.
So what's a mom to do?
All this food is going into a ziplock bag-in the freezer-
So when I don't FEEL like cooking for an army.
Everyone will think I did!

Sinkful of fresh lettuce straight from the garden.
There's nothing better than plain, crisp, cold greens with a squirt of ranch and a
dash of pepper.
Jan-Feb harvest- over 32 lbs of broccoli, lettuce, cauliflower, peas and carrots.
And that's what I weighed.
But this season is ending---
Time for the tomato, squash, cucumber season.

Things I would probably not do if I lived in ordinary circumstances.
No, I didn't break it open, however, I gave it some good whacks and started the process. One of the ladies who I think has serious anger issues smacked the heck out of it for us.
