Not really. I made it through with flying colors. I had 2 Guinness and was really proud of myself. I did have a few more glasses of Ed Hardy Sangria wine later that night. That was points overload. [Read more…]
I hope everyone is having a wonderful Irish holiday – at least those of you who celebrate.
Mr. McConnell and I have gone away for the weekend to take a mini vacay. We usually take little trips a couple times a year, one of them being Valentines. This year we did not get to go. I did get an awesome typewriter though!
I bet you knew that already.
We had a wedding planned for last October (2010). We were going to get married at a castle in a very ancient, traditional, Medieval style. The men were all going to wear kilts. M and his dad were going to wear their family tartan. The girls were going to have very simple dresses as well as my own.
Things happened. Our relationship was not as good as it should have been. He was having issues on the job front and that caused us a lot of stress. We decided it would be in our best interest if we waited. During this time we have been spending more time with our church family, he got a fabulous job in his field and things are much better these days. We are stronger.
I started a little project on March 3. I am a little behind compared to others who started in February.
I recycled some egg cartons and planted my seeds. I planted small cucumbers( forgot name, for pickles), radishes, green onions, green peppers, banana peppers, and green beans. I only planted half of each package in case I messed something up. I am fairly new to the garden thing and not the best at it.
Finally, got my grow along going.
I am only a few weeks late.
That is ok. Better late now that late like we were last year.
The alarm guy was here installing our house alarm. I knew I was not going to get any homework or work done, so I took advantage of the time and decided to try my hand at seed sprouting. I only used half of the pack because I am terrified I am going to mess up somehow and something is not going to grow.
