garden sill

I woke up a little sad this morning because it meant that the weekend was officially over. Maribel and I had so much fun while Joe was at work that I felt a little guilty that he couldn't be part of it too. Then the guilt went away when he called to tell me how much fun he had at work that day.
One of the things M and I did together this weekend was plant our own little garden of herbs and flowers on our kitchen sill. It was so fun and really easy to do. I used some seeds from a little herb garden kit I received one Christmas but never got around to planting-oops, and some flower seeds with some "just add water" potting soil from Target's dollar spot and a cute planter with watering can, also from Target's dollar spot.  Have I mentioned lately how much I love Target?  
Maribel was such a pro when it came to planting the seeds. She knew just what to do, stick finger in dirt, plant seed, cover seed up, sprinkle with a little water. Voila. Our little gardener. I'm wondering if it's a bit too much to rely on her to keep these plants alive since I have a bit of a rep for being a plant killer....maybe just a little.  When she woke up this morning the first thing she did was check to see if her seeds had sprouted.
I guess a lesson on patience is in order.*wink*

Happy Monday!

P.S. I'm participating in Ali Edwards Week In The Life project beginning today. Basically I document a week of my life through photos and journaling and what ever else I find along the way. I love little projects that you can look back several years later and remember the little things that went on that you may or may not still be doing. I haven't decided if I'm going to blog the process as I go or just do it as a seperate little project. I guess we'll see...

with luck, by the end of your week you will see something sprouting out of that dirt

Those little tins are sweet! I'm not a very patient planter either.

PamelaM said... sweet! You can tell by the picture of M that she is really interested and focused. I am sure she will be so excited to see a sprout.

PS - you are such a great mommy.
