Ahh! The sweet relief finishing up my degree. Thanks so much for all of your congratulatory comments!
So far, I have enjoyed...
...sleeping in on Saturday
...going for a leisurely Sunday afternoon ride with Jon
(hello gorgeously pruned pear trees in ritzy neighborhoods)
...running errands with Jon because I have free time now
...reading new books that I've been wanting to read all semester (Jar City, The Glass Maker's Daughter)
...finishing up some quilts (more to come on this front)
...attending a super inspiring music seminar
...learning how to weave and starting on my first rigid heddle loom project
On Sunday, Jon and I were able to get our garden prepared for this summer. We weeded it, added compost from our bin, tilled it and rearranged the rows (ouch, my fingers and hands are still aching from all of that weed pulling!).
Our lonely chives are looking forward to more company. We need to start adding chives to all our recipes, stat!
We're hoping that our second try at growing seeds inside will prove to be better than last year's failure...fingers crossed here!
I stumbled across this super helpful gardening blog yesterday, digginfood, which is written by a master gardener. I think we're going to make her diy squash trellis and cucumber trellis to try and contain these plants better this year.
If you're into gardening, do you have any helpful sites that you frequent?
I'll leave you with Jon's photograph of his japanese garden. Jon is obsessed with growing his moss and will talk your ear off if you ask him for bonsai or moss advice...it's really cute when he gets excited about his plants.
