First Garden Harvest and What We’ve Been Up To

I’m happy to report the garden is now producing vegetables! So far, I’ve harvested a few zucchini, cherry tomatoes, yellow tomatoes, and green beans. I just adore walking out to the garden each day and checking on the plants and seeing what is ready to pick and eat!

Since my sisters’ day with Hannah, we’ve been up to all sorts of fun. Lots of time on local trails, splashing in creeks, and even my once in a blue moon jog with Niva πŸ˜‚

How about some pictures?

Sunday Coffee Date

It’s that time again: Sunday Coffee Date time! Grab a cup of coffee and let’s talk as though we were catching up over a cup of your favorite blend πŸ™‚

If we were having coffee right now… I would wish you a Happy Independence Day! Are you doing anything fun to celebrate? We have an outdoor church service this evening followed by a cookout and then fireworks. I’m curious as to what Sadie will think of fireworks. I used to really dislike fireworks as a young child. I can remember plugging my ears and crying during the whole show each 4th of July for a few years πŸ˜‚

If we were having coffee right now… I would embarrassingly admit that I deep cleaned our bathroom for the first time in way too long. Scrubbing our shower is my least favorite household task. I have no problem changing our sheets out, vacuuming, and (trying to keep up with) cleaning the windows, but the tub? Ugh. What domestic task are you not a fan of?

If we were having coffee right now… I would tell you that Jimmy and I took Sadie to Barnes and Noble on Friday night and randomly left with her first Lego kit! It was actually my first experience with Legos, too, and I had no idea how much fun they are! Jimmy took a picture of us while we were out and it was blurry and perfectly summed up taking a picture with a toddler πŸ˜‰

If we were having coffee right now… I would tell you that Sadie, Niva, and I went over to Niva’s new friends’ house last night so the dogs could play and run around and I don’t know who had more fun, me talking with other husky owners, Sadie running around with three dogs, or Niva getting her zoomies out! It was a good evening 😊

If we were having coffee right now… I would laugh and tell you how I was in our basement yesterday and Jimmy was upstairs with Sadie. He sent me a video…. of me… in the basement. He must have been bored because he tied a string around his phone and sent it down our laundry chute to video me πŸ˜‚

If we were having coffee right now… I’d tell you that I can’t stop baking. What’s new, right?!

What would you want to talk about if we were sitting down for a cup of coffee?
