Grannies Girl

Here is my youngest daughter, Michelle, managing to look like her granny Jax (aka The Mommanator). She was helping me with my compost. You can get a glimpse of my composter in the back of this picture, it's the black/blue barrel being held with 2x4's.(One day I'll get a better picture and instructions on how to make). I made it for no more than $20. Michelle and I were taking the composted material out of the composter and planting hanging baskets with the black gold. Unfortunately, during my gardening this past week, I managed to find myself some Poison Ivy(actually I knew I was pulling it out, but thought that I was taking precautions against getting in on my least it is now out of that part of the yard). On what fun!!! Dosing myself with benedryl and calamine. Luckily it's not terrible, and this is enough to keep it at bay.

The freezer was moved out of my mud room a little while ago. It works fine, just way too big. In it's place I now have a much smaller freezer. My problem is that once it gets into the freezer it tends to stay there, so the smaller the better.

Just spending a lazy Sunday at home with the kiddos. I only get them one weekend a month, so we tend to chill that weekend. Right now we are just chilling watching an on-demand movie-gotta love on-demand.


  1. I hope you are enjoying your movie! I think it's awesome that you live in a 90 year old farmhouse. I'm sure it's not without it's challenges but it sounds delightful!

    I just popped over from the Five Moms blog to thank you for visiting our new blog! We are so excited to get it going tomorow!

  2. I did the same thing yesterday - pulled out some weeds only to realize I was pulling out poison ivy. And also got a compost bin started.

  3. Hey, just wanted to stop by your blog and say HELLO! I followed your comment over from "Five Moms & A Blog" and wanted to thank you for checking us out over there.

    I look forward to getting to know lots of new bloggrs thru this little adventure. =0)
