I have found this to be a recurring pattern in Life, not just in Craft, and I'd like to explore it a bit here, if you'll indulge me.
The sun is shining, and I am soaking in the spring, here on my front deck. But the yard will not take care of itself, and my family has decided to plant a vegetable garden. I've actually been wanting to do this since we moved in three years ago, bit there's always been something: just moved in, just had a baby, just starting a new job...but this is the year. Ted found a great book called "Get Outside: The kids guide to fun in the great outdoors"
Top soil + peat or compost + marigolds + seeds. My kind of book.
We've cut out the spot, moved the sod to fill in some shabby lawn spots, and now, as soon as the aforementioned baby now toddler wakes up, we're off to get seeds etc.
