Happy almost spring time!

What a beautiful weekend we had! After the snow we got last week and the Week of Ill we had in this house, the gloriously sunny weekend was just what the doctor ordered!

Last Thursday, Zoe got sick with a stomach bug of sorts. Then, she shared it with her Mommy because she loves her so much. I didn't want Everett to feel left out, so I passed on the germs to him. We were each sick as dogs for 4 days straight. Luckily, our illnesses progressed more or less serially, and not in parallel.

By Saturday, we were back feeling better and were ready to rock. So we headed to Home Depot to get supplies for "Zoe's Garden"! She loved picking the tomatoes last year so this year we've decided to give Zoe her own garden! We bought some tomato and green bean seeds and as soon as I told her they were for "Zoe's Garden", she didn't stop saying "Zoe garden, Zoe garden" to anyone who passed us by in the store! When we got home, we had fun putting dirt in the little containers and pushing the seeds down deep.

In addition to Zoe's Garden, I weeded the front! Man, did it feel good to pull up every single weed I could find by the roots! The OCD in me came out in full-force and I took advantage of it! Zoe "helped" me by placing the "elephant food" in the weed bucket (more on that in a later post). After the Great Weed Purge, we put down some dark brown mulch. In the end, we couldn't help but stand back and admire all the daffodils that made their debut this year on Saturday. These are the same bunch that I planted when I was preggers with Zuzu. Although I'm still sore 2 days later, the pain is worth it. Isn't that always* the case?

* Well maybe not always, but often.
