I think my kids are ready to go back to school tomorrow after 2 1/2 weeks of being on fall break.
How do I know this? Well, my two youngest daughters, Ruthie and Gracie, just asked me if there were any jobs that I needed them to do.
So after, I picked up my jaw from the floor, I told them that the patio needed to be swept and then thanked them for being so thoughtful.
A few minutes later, I saw them sweeping the patio. Then I saw the hose come out as they sprayed the patio. BUT, they didn’t stop there. As I watched them, Ruthie started to squirt dish soap on the patio and then proceeded to scrub the patio using the broom.
I just didn’t have the heart to tell her that she didn’t need to use soap. She was working so hard and looked like she was actually enjoying herself as she walked through all the soap suds.
And now, I probably have the cleanest patio in the entire neighborhood 😉
Earlier this morning, I went outside to see how my vegetable garden was faring. As I examined my plants, I paid special attention to many of my vegetable seedlings.
My lettuce seedlings are a bit late in getting started this fall. The reason being that I didn’t learn my lesson last fall, when birds ate my new seedlings, which is what happened again this year. So this is my second attempt this fall.
How about you?
Have you planted any vegetables this fall?
