Garden: Year Two
We are starting our second garden. Last year we had the modest goal of growing a salad. We failed. That is not true, we grew tomatoes and cucumbers until we grew weary and could eat them no more. We let many go to waste before we thought “Pickle dummy, pickles.” We are new to all this stuff. Sometimes we miss the obvious. We do, however, learn so this year we planted tons of things...
What a great wedding we attended in Jacksonville! Megan’s brother is in good hands with that one. We had such a good time and it totally flew by. We didn’t want to come home just yet. But when we did get back we were welcomed home with many a blooms around the yard. The mountain is getting so so green and it seems a different flower opens up every day. Man oh man, we...
We just wanted to say a quick THANKS! to our dear friend Taylor for doing a sweet little post on her blog yesterday about our Etsy shop, Our Rock House [read it here]. We sent her some of Kaylon’s rings and we’re so happy she liked them, gave them as gifts and spread the love! Thanks again, Taylor! Check out Taylor’s awesome designs and illustrations on her website, Applegang....

She kept the blanket on and went over to the...

Yesterday afternoon, we got our creative juices flowing. We painted. Kaylon gave the door and trim of the cabin a lighter, brighter, fresher coat of minty green. It’s so Spring-y and cheery. And Megan started painting a very special card for a very special couple for their very special upcoming event. Handmade cards the best, am I right? Tell us, what are you creating these...
1. A chicken escaped. 2. And Grey Cat could have cared less. Really. That neighbor cat only cares about rolling in the dirt and being petted and scratched by anyone walking by. And we oblige… but with a stick… because he’s filthy due to aforementioned dirt rolling. Seriously, don’t touch that cat. 3. And things are sprouting in the garden! Woo hoo!
“Oh, wow, that’s a great tree. Let’s climb it.” “Alright, you get up there and then I’ll join you.” Megan steps back to take a good look at the tree then circles it trying to figure out the easiest way up. She goes with the ‘walk up the trunk’ technique and it’s a brilliant success. She sits for a while enjoying the view. Then...
