I'm at the end of the week that got away. Somewhere between music lessons and theatre practice (and a lot of rain!) it was suddenly Friday. I'm not really sure how that happened.

At one point the kitchen was full of pottery makings, cookie makings, and breakfast makings. In that order. There was work for me. First grilled pizza of the season. And the best part of the week was our first spring csa pickup from the farm. (greens!!)

Joe invited his entire office over for a bbq on Saturday. I think we have about 30 people coming. His email invitation said something like "we have a treehouse, dogs, bees, chickens, a zipline, and a lot of mud. bring your family, let your kids get dirty and we'll all have a good time." Many moons ago when our family was little we got together often with coworkers. Military life differs from the civilian world, we become each other's family. It shifts as you get older, and life gets busier. But in those early days this camaraderie was the glue that held life together.

In other news…. I bought graduation(!!!) invitations for a little shin-dig coming up in four weeks. Someone should pinch me because I can't really believe my first baby is graduating from high school. This will be another big party. We're lucky to be close enough for all of Joe's family to drive down for the ceremony, my parents are flying in from Alaska for a few days. As a funny side note, and to confirm your thoughts of my craziness, we will be puppy sitting at the end of the month too. Three lab puppies. My niece's dog had a litter a few weeks back and THREE of them are heading home to Alaska with my parents after the graduation. One for my parents, one for my brother, and one for a good friend of ours. So uhm, yeah…. a graduation celebration to plan, 20+ house guests and three nine week old puppies. I like my plate FULL. (hehehe)

I have a few link love bits for you::

DIY potted plant hangers.

This yoga class looks amazing. (and might be just the thing to keep me sane during this month!)

How to transplant those tomato seedlings.

On my pin board :: this quilt, these cookies, this space…..

  1. I was military for more than half my life and love the bonds that are formed. My son in law is in the Army and now my daughter is experiencing the bonds and sacrifices that come with the job. Thank you and your husband.
    Have a beautiful weekend and thank you for the links, you know I love them.

  2. I love your photos this week. Especially the eggs in the cast iron. The tiles on your backsplash remind me of my Grandpa’s house, perfectly seaside New England.
