              How did your week go? Mine is pretty good, things are looking up in the career department! In other news, I planted some pumpkin seeds and lettuce seeds the week before and this week I’m seeing some pumpkin sprouts. The lettuce…just cups of dirt so far.

It’s Friday the 13th! Are you superstitious? Me, not so much. It’s my nephew’s last day of school and I was remembering that happy feeling as a kid knowing school would be out of my life for a few months…but then realizing I would be home doing chores all summer.

It’s time for blog posts I loved this week, Mother’s Day edition! 1. Hanging Kitchen Herb Garden – 3 Peppers This is such a clever idea for a kitchen herb garden and I think a fun project to set up for your mom!

I served it with a big heaping side of veggies. 2.  Yoda Soda – The Baking Robot This weekend my…
