The big girl had rehearsal every evening this week. Opening performance is tonight, followed by two more over the weekend. I know she is looking forward to everything slowing down a bit after this weekend. I think we all are….
Monday Joe took the big boy to register for college. He's attending a local community college. This teenage+highschool+coming+of+age stuff is easy for some kids and harder for others. He falls in the latter category. It's been an act of love and patience to sit back and let him figure things out. He went from not wanting to attend college at all to wanting to attend a very expensive university far away to deciding community college one town over was a good fit. Yes, he is responsible for his own tuition…. we're here to support and feed and cheer him on, but that's it. He came home from registration and told me had decided on an engineering transfer program. I told him that was so wonderful, that I was glad he was focused on something. He asked me why I let him think general studies was a good idea beforehand. I told him I never thought it was a good idea, but sometimes someone else needed to tell him that…. you know, someone other than your mama. That got a laugh. It's baby steps I tell you…. one little thing at a time.
Other than that. I have a gardening post in the works to share with you. I've been working out there a little most every day and if a few seeds would sprout up I would sure feel a lot more successful. Ahem. Patience… yes, I know.
Here's a list of random lovely things::
This is what my garden looks like in my head. I'll get there…..
We made lentil tacos this week & they were amazing. (didn't even use the peppers & onions, just the seasoning and lentils. easy + so good.)
Chickpeas and mustard greens. Yes please. (make a double batch of chickpeas & add them to salads!)
One of my favorite egg meals. So good……
How cute is this?
Looking at dehydrators. Thinking of this one. (hello sticker shock, right?) Does anyone have a favorite one they love? I'm all ears.
Happy weekending folks. And happy mama's day to all of you women who have nurtured another soul. Human one, furry one, feathered one…. It's hard work for sure.
