How does our Garden grow: Update #1

Strawberry Plant
Since it's been a month since I first wrote about our new adventure in  container gardening I thought I would post an update. I am very happy with how it's going and the kids are having fun watering and taking care of the plants. Luckily everything is still alive as I don't have the greatest track record with plants.

Tomato Plant. 

Nathan's potato bucket.

Karensa's potato bucket.

Peas. We planted some more of these too as we had seeds and more buckets left.

Basil, Oregano and chives.

We planted carrots as we received these neat paper hearts with carrot seeds inside  while at a  children's health fair. The kids loved this!

WW: Sleeping Princess {with linky}

The flu hit our house over the last week (somehow again Nathan managed to not get it) but the rest of us did. I snapped some pictures of Karensa sleeping while she was sick. Something so peaceful about how she looks. This time was rough but at least she had the words to vocalize this time such as when she drank water and got sick, so promptly said "No water, tummy ouchy". She was also very protective later in the week when her papa got sick and she thought I was giving him water (powerade) "Papa, ouchy tummy, no water".

Monday Quiz About Me: Blog Hop #MQAM


This great little Blog Hop is based on the original Meet Me on Monday hosted by Java at Never Growing Old. Heather over at Acting Balanced  posts 4 questions on Sunday evening and includes a linky list, so be sure to click the button below to link up after posting your questions/answers.  You also have the option of adding in your own question.

This weeks questions:


1. What was your favorite childhood toy?

2. Where did you go this weekend?

3. When was the last time you shopped for yourself?  What did you buy?

4. Paper, Plastic or Reusable?


My Answers:



1. What was your favorite childhood toy?

I have fond memories of a little owl robot called hootbot. I absolutely loved this thing and can distinctly remember the sound of his feet on the hardwood floors. I even have a picture somewhere I took of him.

2. Where did you go this weekend?

After a quick stop at drugstore for pepto bismol for husband (ugh..flu) took the kids to the local museum which has an awesome children's area and had added some new items. After went to Costco, then back to museum as forgot something there. Sunday, we went to the park and stopped at store for milk. Also went to a little craft show.

3. When was the last time you shopped for yourself?  What did you buy?

Hmm..it was a while ago but went and bought myself some bras, which were badly needed.

4. Paper, Plastic or Reusable?

A combination of plastic and reusable. I definitely use reusable for those stores that charge for plastic. But I use plastic at other stores and bring them home to reuse for bedroom and bathroom garbage cans. Saves me from buying bags and allows me to reuse others.

5. Are you ticklish?


Yes, I am, but especially on my feet. I can't stand them being touched.


My 5th question this week is..

What is your favourite flavour of ice cream?

WW: All tied up in knots (with linky)

This is what greeted my husband when he went to put his shoes on the other day. Turns out Karensa actually weaved an extra shoelace into the one on his shoe and tied it all up. That girl has got some talent, hopefully one day she will do some good with it!


Take a moment and link up! I would love to see your Wordless Wednesday Post.
