I am going to ramble a bit before I share the print with you today!
We have been doing life. Mr. K did get that job, but after a lot of praying, we decided it wasn’t the direction God wanted us to go. Immediately after that he was informed of some changes happening at his job, so we are again just hanging out in God’s waiting room, holding onto His hands.
Today the family and I made a huge purchase. We bought our very own weed eater. We haven’t owned one for about 12 years. When we moved into town, we gave ours away because we were living in an apartment building. After we moved from there and through the various short term stays, we moved to the duplex, and our landlord mowed all the lawns on the block, so we didn’t have to worry about it. We haven been borrowing my sister to weed eat for us when it really needs it, so it was waaaay beyond time. It was a long discussion on what to do, gas? battery? cord? We decided to go with a cordless model. One of the main reasons we decided to go that route was because then I can use it without having to mess with getting it started. I hate that part of lawn care. We have to wrestle with the mower, so having to spend extra time trying to start an additional machine made me want to freak out. The other weighing decision was long term cost. Paying for gas and oil and mixing it and just argh…. The reason I regaled you with that bunch of words was to tell you this: today we did lawn care. Got the garden tilled, put compost and manure on it, and ENLARGED it. I am so excited! We have to put up a big fence this year and build a gate. The rabbits and I have already started our battle. They ate some of my freshly planted flowers. mowed them clean off. So the battle is on!
We have Spinach coming up in the galvanized tub, planted carrots, dill and spearmint. So #koehngarden2015 is getting underway! Yeehaw people! Yeehaw! #stateofthegarden
It’s almost that time of year again! If you are looking to get your family’s brains moving and start planning your summer, here ya go!
