Right Now

Here’s what’s happening… right now!

The lettuce that we planted last year and got rid of as soon as the season was over has come back — all over!  We have about 8 plants like this in our garden bed, (and a few popping up in our lawn!)  I have had home-grown salad for a few days now, and am loving it!  What a fun surprise.

The time change has worked wonders with our chickens.  We are now back up to 5 – 9 eggs a day.  (This winter we had many days with just 0 – 1 egg and actually had to buy some at the Farmer’s Market.)  Hooray for the time change!

I have no idea what happens to peaches that begin to ripen in March.  They are about the size of a large bouncy ball — probably mostly pit.  Does this mean no July peaches this year?  Probably.

This boy.  Right now he has taken to saying, “Mama,” in a weird baby voice.  He says it all. the. time.  But he is not a baby now.  Oh no; he is all toddler!  He loves singing in his crib, and I often get serenaded with “Farmer in the Dell” while making breakfast.  It used to be I asked for a kiss and I got one.  Now, I often get a scrunched-up-eyes-closed-smiley face.  At least I still get my kiss if I fake cry!  He also still loves to wear his goggles.  Makes me smile every time.

Last but not least… these children decided 88 degrees outside was enough to put on swimsuits and go for a swim… in March… despite the pool being freezing cold.  Gotta love kids!

And that’s what’s happening… right now.
