Hey, Remember Me?

I have not fallen off the face of the earth!

It’s just been crazy busy around here. I’ve had interruptions in the kitchen painting so I feel bad that it is not done yet to show off. But soon! I do see the end, it is near.

There is still a lot of this around the house.


Cabinets and drawer fronts cover all the tables and are across boards between the chairs. We eat our dinner either on the couch or out on the patio. I’m actually liking eating outside! But I feel the frustration of some family members. Okay, maybe all the family members.

I’m also battling the evils in my garden.


Oh, it looks good from a distance. But I have powdery mildew on my squash leaves which is now spreading to my cucumbers. I’m trying not to use chemicals so I’m using diluted milk to battle it. 

I am losing said battle.


Also battling this little guy. They are cute but they are the devil. They have munched their way through my tomato leaves and are now working on my cucumber leaves. They are fast and furious. 
You can see my nice romaine lettuce in the background here. The romaine is finished already. 
I will replant more lettuce in the fall.

We also made the trip to Atlanta and proudly watched as #2 son graduated from GA Tech.

I love this shot with all the kids on their cell phones trying to find their moms and dads!

Yes my son, my newly graduated engineer, wore flip flops to his graduation. I guess he could have been that other kid with the black shoes and white shorty socks! 

We had lunch at a fabulous restaurant downtown called Baraonda. You must go if you’re in the area. They use really fresh ingredients.

One more graduation to go. #3 son graduates at the end of the month. Pray for good weather because his will be outside!

Don’t give up on me! I hope to get back to a normal schedule soon.
Hope all of you wonderful moms had a great Mothers Day!
