this and that

well, i haven’t posted in a while. it’s because i’ve actually been busy at work and haven’t had free time to blog. if we had internet at home, it wouldn’t be a problem but alas…

so last weekend was justin’s first week out with sara evans. they played a show in alabama and it was a try-out (sort of) for justin. everyone thought he was wonderful –of course. so now he’ll be playing with her. mark your calendars, kansans, he’ll been there july 5th.

while justin was gone i started a project. i built two raised vegetable boxes. i’m planning on four total, but haven’t finished the last two yet. i was going to build one big one, but i figured if we move before everything’s done blooming, i want to be able to easily take them with me. it only took me all afternoon and about a bazillion phone calls to my dad to finish the first box. the second went much faster, and i’m hoping the 3rd and 4th will be even easier. i’m planning on planting tomatoes, green beans, cucumbers and strawberries. i originally planted the tomato off to the side, but have now moved it to the middle. when i went to water last night, i noticed my green beans had already sprouted and were decent sized!! i’ll take more pictures tonight.

i also planted some herbs in my pots out front and am excited to start cooking with them. i have rosemary, thyme, oregano, sage, chives, cilantro and basil. yummy!!

as soon as i get the pictures loaded from this weekend, i’ll blog about how the half marathon went. big shocker--it was HARD!!
