Ok, so I basically have a black thumb but I have been trying to garden a little because I fancy myself a farmer at heart (even though I would be a starving farmer because I SUCK at it). But yesterday on my every so many days stroll past the ole Zuchini plant, this is what I found:


When did this happen? I think magic zuchini elves welded this onto my plant in the middle of the night. How do you go from nothing to giant so fast? I don't pretend to understand.

Also, please check out the new blog I have with my best friend. It is lots of fun!

To Kill a Mockingbird

So beautiful. I am spellbound. I understand why people name their kids Harper and Scout after reading this book. It is so amazing. I love it when a book haunts me. This one will for a long time.

P.S. I have done 27 of the items on my list. More than a 1/4 of the way through.

A harvest

Our plum tree has not been raped by the evil squirrels (unlike her poor sister the peach tree)! We got a mess o' plums up in here.

Also, on the recommendation my dear friend Renee at East of Eden, I am trying out some Sally Hansen nail effects. I thought they would be good for the girls, who like to have painted nails but do not so much have the patience for the nails to dry (thereby negating entirely the painting of the nails- not to mention the mess). First off, they are expensive- it was $10.49 for one box. However, with careful application (aka it took forever), I did both of the girls' hands and my toes and still have a few left over. So far they have survived a night of sleep and a morning shower. I am enjoying my toe glitteriness and the girls love it. We shall see how it goes.

I have been on vacation...

But I am back today and I am sure I will be motivated in just no time at all to make a proper post.
