Grocery Results 1/11/10

*Sigh*...'tis raining again. As I sit here typing, I can hear the rain hitting the windows. It's not enough to drown out the roar of the creek, but pretty close!

I love the roar of the creek.

It drowns out the noise from the kids.

Summertime is bittersweet.

I've been spending the rainy days planning our 2010 garden. It will be so nice to be able to dig in the warm, fresh-tilled dirt.

This is what our garden looks like now...

Not very impressive at the moment, but just wait...

In the meantime, I'll just figure out how to make my potatoes do this...

My potato is in the middle. The others are from Idaho. Show-offs. I may need to make a trip to Idaho and round me up some of that dirt.

Here's how the shopping trip went.

I've come over via Mountain Home Quilts. I see that you also received her award.

Love your blog and what you post.
Your post about HGTV made me laugh. Our family likes to watch House Hunters. We always try and guess which house they'll choose.

Have a great day!
