Spring at the VA Garden

I have blogged about this place before (here and here for starts) but wanted to share these pics I took the other day during a trip to get some veggies for our garden. We got a total of 7 plants for $5 - pretty awesome...and found out they have a market open on Wednesdays at the VA near the cafeteria where they sell their latest produce. You can also buy it at the garden, but they carry odd hours - Some people there will tell you that someone is only there until 11:00 a.m. and one guy told us he is there until 2 p.m. but from experience you are safer going before 11...everyone we have ever met here has been awesome - our plants are amazing - the price is the best - the free help people are just excited to give is beyond books (a lot of volunteers there are studying botany at CSULB or city college) - I just can't say enough!  Plus Spring time here is pretty eye catching, no?

Daybook Entry

(This entry is inspired by The Simple Woman's Daybook)

Outside my window...Wind...strong winds...making me think we will get a lot of complaints from our clients this week! (we own a pool cleaning business)

I am thinking...I need to finally get through my inbox once and for all!

I am thankful...for the community around me that has been such a support since I broke my leg. Also for my husband who has had to be daddy and mommy this past month.

In the kitchen...a meal plan set for almost the whole month! I should put Bryan in charge of this all the time!

I am wearing...my walking cast and comfortable clothes...same thing I have worn for the past 6 weeks!

I am creating...nothing right now...itching to get some sewing done again once i get this boot off...nothing like a forced break to make you want to get back at it!

I am going...insane being in the house all the time! 

I am wondering...how much longer...

I am reading...Just finished reading book 5 of Game of Thrones. Starting a new book this week!

I am hoping...for no injuries this month :)

I am looking forward to...a girls night tonight!

I am learning...to accept my limitations

Around the house...lots of messes...

I am pondering...plans for a big garage sale!
