Teach a man to fish....

....and he eats for a lifetime. Well, I have always loved that saying, scripture, whatevah...and I think it is fitting here. We are not fishing, but we have gotten our garden started.  Kendra is home this weekend, so all of us were out there helping. The projects we do as a family are twice as nice. Anyway, my husband tilled up a small area to get us started. So far, we have planted six tomato plants and 2 rows of collard greens. We were worried about deer, and I sat down in a lawn chair and was gazing into the woods. I noticed some wire things in the just out in the woods a bit...TOMATO CAGES!!!! YAY!!! Tomato cages from heaven!! So then we dug circles around the tomato plants and put the cages around them. Nah nah nah nah nah! Take that deer!!

Today, peppers, squash, cucumbers, and who knows what else.....hubby is heading out to buy more!!!!! Kendra wants sunflowers, and I think that is a great idea!!

I am a Slacker at Best!

So sorry loyal readers. I know everyone has been waiting with bated breath for me to write again, but I have been sooo busy with my other blog, work, school, trips around the world, you know, everyday stuff. LOL Anyway, school is going really well. I am almost finished with  my first class. I have an "A" yay!!

Everything has been going OK here in the Addison household. The house is coming together nicely. We got the master bath redone thanks to a tub leak and good insurance, and now all we have left is replacing the vanity top. That will be done at the end of the month, because the top we picked out is on backorder (of course.) We dug a great fish pond, and the Comets and Rosy Red Minnows in it are flourishing. I also found a beautiful 45 gallon tank on Craigslist that I have set up in the living room. Lots of different fish in there.

Kendra graduates in 2 months which is really unbelievable to me! She will be attending the University of Georgia in the Fall. I am so proud of her! Zac is as always Zac. He is ready for school to be over, so he can play 24/7. LOL

So that is the past month in a nutshell. A very LARGE nutshell, but a nutshell nonetheless. Sorry no words of wisdom this time. I'm not feeling very wise this morning. I've only had one cup of ambition this morning, and I'm really not feeling another one. This sofa is feeling mighty fine this morning, and I am enjoying the view from my family room window.....
