Free labor

Had a great Saturday work day today. I have the most marvelous husband who cheerfully handles small projects for me so I can move ahead on goals for the house and yard. Today he worked on fixing a broken rake, installed a rack inside a cupboard, repaired a closet knob, and put a handle on a "new" antique garden cultivator. Along with all the other things he wanted to get done.

We enlarged the garden this year to about triple the previous size. (Tom did all the sodbusting earlier this week while I re-tilled the parts that were already prepared and raked out sod in the new section) I have some seeds starting under lights in the basement. (Tom set that up for me too) I have sweet peppers, bunching onions, and tomatoes so far. I also have leeks that don't seem to be coming up. I think perhaps I haven't been keeping them quite warm enough? I need more heating elements for next year...

I spent time on cleaning up the flower beds today. That's always a great feeling. Spring is so energizing. I had several new transplants last year so hopefully I did not "weed" any out. (I have done that before!) I did not want to take the time to pull out my diagrams of what is where. Hope I don't regret that.

After a hard day's work, we have the movie "High Noon" with Gary Cooper to watch tonight when the kids are in bed. I'll be knitting on Sissy's wedding shawl and enjoying a glass of wine with my husband during the movie. Ahhh, the good life.

But first I need to clean up the kitchen and get the kids in the tub.
