Baby watch

Things might get a little slower on here. Not that they could get that much slower,

However, as of Wednesday we are officially on baby watch. I am only due March 17th, but things are already well on there way so the dr figures its only a matter of time. I am hoping it stays in for at least a couple more weeks. That will mean its lungs will be better developed by then and less time in the NICU if any.

 It's exciting, stressful and scary all at the same time. We have nothing ready and I am trying not to do anything more than necessary so I don't accelerate things. However, its pretty hard to sit and do nothing with a  22 month

Hopefully the little guy or gal stays in past this week-end so we have a chance to get a few more things done. 

I'll keep you all posted!

Pinterest tryouts week #1

I like many of you out there use Pinterest. I love pinning, but I'm bad at not actually using anything I have pinned. So another 2016 goal is to use one pinned item a week from one of the categories I have created. While doing this I will also organize my categories as well. If you would like to follow me on pinterest click the button on the right side bar.

This week I'm taking a look at projects I would like to make. This folder was the first one a created and was kind of all over the place. It had everything i it from apples to quilting. I moved 40 pins into different folders.

The project I am going to make/ use as inspiration is
Easy placemats from sameliasmum. I pinned this project 4 years ago.

If you have been following my Work in Progress Reports I haven't gotten too far. Just have the fabric cut and the batting cut. I am hoping to get it done this week if I can remember to get Mr.P to help me get my chair free!! I'm not doing anything too fancy just one piece for the front and a second for the back. This "placemat" will be sitting under our espresso machine so no one will really be seeing it, but it's better than the plastic I have under it now!

Next week I will be trying out something from my next board "Holiday Crafts" Should be interesting I have no idea what is all in there.

Till then

Garden thoughts

With the weather warming up ( it's -11C with the windchill  I've been thinking about the garden. I know I will plant again this year even though some people in my life keep saying silly things like don't plant it or just plant a small garden.  That irks me to no end.  I just want to yell the thousands of not nice things in my head. I know real mature, It's my life, my garden and eventual my weeds and no one else's so there ya go. 

Right now the garden looks like this. Almost ready to plant.. Hahaha

With the baby due in March aka time to start sowing indoors I have decided not to start my own seedlings this year. I figured why add to my plate and have th extra responsibility if I don't need too. It makes me sad, but rather be sad now then overwhelmed later. Maybe.

Last year I was really disappointed with my seeds so I might try another company. The seedlings I started indoors turned out pretty good. However, just about everything I planted outside had horrible germination. The weather didn't help,  but I was still disappointed. For the second year in a row my tomatoes got blight. In 2014 I bought plants and this past year I grew from seed and still got blight. I'm going to try planting in the back garden this year and see if that makes a difference.

I am still going to do my plot system this year as it really seemed to work out the past few years. However I am thinking I might throw in a few more flower plots to make things pretty.

Lots of thinking

Take care
