Green Thumb

This year we're experimenting with a vegetable garden. We've tried tomatoes and herbs in the past but this year we're going to branch out into peas, carrots, squash, and cucumbers. We started a few seeds in little pots last month. Then once they got started we transplanted them into our little veggie bed. So far our transplants are not doing so well. We also planted some seeds so hopefully they'll take off now that it's warmed up out side. Here are some pics of the finished effort:

This picture reminds me of my grandma watering her yard. Lots of good memories of her working in her flower beds. Probably because she never made me help spread the cow manure.

Sid lovin' her garden. She even hugged it right before I took this pic. Hopefully the work will pay off and we'll have some fresh veggies to snack on this summer. If not, there's always the HEB produce section.

Digging up the Past

After my grandparents passed away last year, my family decided that it would be nice to move my mom and aunt to the same plot. So for the past several months my uncle has been working to get all the legal details in order to make the move. It required a judge's seal of approval and lots of patience but they finally moved my mom this week. I'm not sure how I feel about it. I like that they are all together. I like that i can see my grandparents, aunt, and mom at the same time. It's just odd. Kind of like re-arranging the furniture, but with bodies. I'm going to see it in a few weeks. She's still dead, but I keep thinking that she's happier now. I hope so anyway.
