In Which We Have A Night Nurse And I Play In The Garden

The latest spur-of-the-moment purchase: I shall call him Fred.
Tonight will be the first time we have our night nursing!!  You just have to picture that every time the phrase "night nursing" is said, it's in a crazy opera voice with jazz hands and an accompaining happy dance to emphasize just how awesome it is.  Also perhaps there should be fireworks and/or a choir of angels.  You get the picture.

Anyway, because of the night nursing today was going to be awesome regardless of what I did, but it turns out it was a pretty great day anyway.  The sun came out and it was one of those perfect spring days where it's just warm enough to feel good but not too hot to be outside for long periods of time.  While the boys hung out together I took a trip to the nursery and bought a couple of things I was actually looking for and a few spur of the moment things.  I am not exactly a meticulous planner when it comes to gardening-- my gardens always end up crammed full of spur-of-the-moment purchases. 

Once I got home, I took Connor's floor positioner out onto the deck and he hung out there in the shade and serenaded the neighborhood with a mixing bowl and wooden spoon while I played in the dirt for a while.  It was a very satisfying afternoon for both of us.

So I started filling in a few more beds, and very very slowly the garden is started to look less neglected and more like somebody actually has done some work out there.  It will still be a couple more years at the earliest before the beds that are close to finished really fill out and look mature, and I've got a ton of space I haven't even started playing with yet, but it's coming!  Luckily we're probably going to stay in this house forever, so I have plenty of time to make the outside look good. 

Anyway I'd better wrap this up, because even though Connor is still awake and very, very screamy, the night nurse just got here so it's time for sweet, blissful sleep!
