I have had the pleasure of hosting my sister and 2 nephews for nearly three weeks. It has been great! And the star of the show has been my 2 1/2 year old nephew, Amir. He is sweet as pie and a handful all at the same time. It’s amazing how much I saw him grow in just a short time; from eating more to speaking much more clearly. I’m still having a hard time getting him to put “Auntie” in front of Kendra but we’ll get there eventually. I’ve also never seen anyone eat so many peanut butter crackers! It was also great when he overflowed the toilet! Yes… having a toddler around keeps everyone on their toes. I’ll miss his little good morning hugs. Read more
It’s been nice to have a break from working and my time has been quite productive. I’ve managed to get my house back in order. It’s spic and span and I’m working on getting my yard in the condition I want it. Part of the yard work of course is getting my garden going. With the help of my sister, Mica, and my 2-year-old nephew Amir, we planted the first starters of the season: peas and lettuce and my herb garden is all set. It felt good to be back in the garden. I’m a little uncertain about the lettuce though, it’s looking pretty sad. Hopefully it’ll come around. I’ve also gotten my compost going again. I really enjoy this entire process.
