What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Happy Weekend!

The first two bearded irises bloomed today.  (It must have been the dew.)

Thanks to 'gardening week' my house is entirely trashed...why can't a clean house AND a sown garden EVER happen simultaneously?  Please- nobody stop by unexpectedly  M'kay?!?!  Give me at least a 20 minute head's up to get the waterlogged Judah undies off the kitchen floor and the crumbs left from breakfast wiped off the dining table.  

I put walkways in the garden this morning making it semi-labyrinth-esque which is fun.  Tonight the Mister and his tractor are going to help me put sawdust down on them.

 I planted the summer squash, zucchini, cucumbers, (the first batch of) corn, swiss chard, and green beans (and made a trellis for them) so far today.  

That list sounds impressive if you don't think about the fact that I hoped to have the WHOLE garden in by tomorrow- and I don't.  Not even close.  Beets?  Lettuce?  Spinach?  Carrots? Garlic? POTATOES?  Acorn squash?   Better stop thinking about it.....

My husbands' boss (and his family) are coming to dinner on Sunday...not a good time for the house to be trashed.  Saturday is going to be 'disaster clean up' day.  fun.

I have looked in NO LESS THAN TEN stores for kale to plant and I can not find seeds anywhere.  It is frustrating. 

I hate that I didn't order plants/seeds from catalogs this year.

It is 90 degrees and I've been working in the garden all day so guess what we are doing tonight?  BUYING pizza!

I have five loads of laundry to fold tonight during movie night.

I intended to crochet some edging around pillowcases for a(n already late) bridal shower gift during movie night- but laundry takes precedence (again).

I am sweating like a pig and going to head out to go splash in the hose like my children.  Smart ones, they.

Have a happy weekend~

Stay Cool
