Gardening 101 and other miscellany

We're having another busy week, and I cant believe September is almost over! That means Thanksgiving and Christmas are just right around the corner! That makes me happy, extremely happy! But, enough about that, focus...focus!

Country life is just swell. I think I'm finally adjusting to the new surroundings and the silence...I think I'm actually beginning to like it now! And the critters don't bother me as much now.
Me and the critters, long story...we don't really like each other, but at least I don't go into a screaming-bloody-murder-fit anymore when I see them or they jump on me! Aren't you proud of me?!?! One of these days I will muster up some courage and go take pictures of them for you dear readers, I know you just can't wait to see them!

Onto a more interesting topic, I'm so excited about my new plants. I'd never planted before, so this is my first time. I started out with cilantro, green onions, and jalapenos. I figured if they would grow okay, I would start planting some more...

Check out my plants:

Green onions

I'm so pleased that they're thriving and I have to say that I really enjoy weeding, watering and planting! I plan on incrementing some other plants soon...tomatoes, lettuce, kale, green peppers, zuchinni, and others are on my list. Gardening really is fun!

The prince loves "helping"...he has some small little shovels and he enjoys poking around while I work on weeding and watering the plants! He's a great little helper!
He hasn't been feeling the greatest, we've had some rough sleepless nights lately. He has 2 molars coming in, and he got a nasty, nasty cold to top it off, so he's been up coughing all night :(
I'm so ready to see him feeling better and to get a good nights sleep again! And........we have new puppies at the farm. 9 of them, to be exact! Too many puppies, too much noise if you ask me. They were born yesterday morning and they're really cute.The prince was in awe when I took him over to see them. I am sure he will love playing with the them.......and his daddy even said he can keep one of them!

Life's good and busy...and I'm going to take a nap because this business being up all night is really wearing me out. Yes, I am thankful for naps today! ZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
