After starting last week with a little snow and ending with a lot of rain, the sun finally came out to lift our winter blues a bit. And I mean just a bit. We had exactly 2 hours of shining sun, but I took full advantage...

See that yellow strip in the corner that says "Easy Assembly?"
In the box was a million different pieces for my Easy Assembly greenhouse, and no written directions on how to build it. Just a ripped in half drawing with only some of the parts labeled.
After a quick pep-talk that went a little like this: "You is kind. You is smart. You is important," I dug in.
Then I called for reinforcements. Because I'm a teacher and this is what us home school Mommas like to refer to as a "teachable moment."
Ya, that was the reason.

Then we called in the big guns. He's college educated, which worked to my advantage.
|Kody is not only smart, he's tall. Which translates to "able to put plastic cover on top of frame."|
Guess what I'll be doing this week?

A few days ago, I informed my Mister that we were out of dog food and I would be making a trip into town to get some more. Here's how the conversation went down...
"Are you just picking up dog food or do you have an ulterior motive?"
"Just dog food, and what do you mean by ulterior motive?" (I may have batted my baby green's at him.)
(Laughing) "Because the dog food is at the farm store and you NEVER come home with just dog food."
(Appalled) "Well, you don't know me very well, do you?"
(Very seriously) "Just in case the chicks are in, can you just be strong? Just this once?"
Looking my Mister in the eye, I said, "Ha! Strong is all I know how to be!"
Meet the new kids on the block. I'm calling them The Dirty Dozen.
She's calling them all Fluffy.
And she gets to break the news to Poppa.☺
