I've been a bad blogger

A bright bunch of flowers for my thoughtlessness.

The garden is in and sprouting well. Radishes, carrots, potatoes, peas, onions, lettuce, spinach, one row of sweet corn (so far), and two rows of green beans (so far). DH helped put up the trellis (cattle panels) for the peas and he helped me pick out my new tiller, a little Troy-Bilt that will get in between the rows but has enough power to till the whole garden. Heaven....I'm in heaven...and my heart beats so that I can hardly speeeeeeeeeeak...when I'm in my garden tilling once a week...

And...we had a little party for DD's 6th birthday.

Isn't this just the most precious thing?

I won't even bother to show you pictures of the THREE Bratz dolls that she received as gifts (TWO FROM DH!!!!) Oh, the humanity!

Darling neighbor E was so pleased to give DD flowers for DD's "very own garden."
We started off her birthday with a pancake breakfast at the Hardin County Farm Museum. Then, we stopped by the Reisinger Horse Farm, where she got a personal tour of the amazing barns full of beautiful paint horses. I grew up around horses and miss them quite a bit, so it was no surprise that I came home and dreamed out loud to DH about how we could put a pasture in the front yard...and a little shed...for just a horse or two...and...well, he doesn't exactly share my dream. Let's just leave it at that.

Later that night, my mom took DD to the 99 cent movie theater to see TMNT. DD came home exhausted but thrilled with her day-long birthday celebration.
