Hey there, hot stuff! How’s your summer starting out? We are hanging in there so far, and I say “so far” because it’s going to be a LONG one. Our garden is already showing signs of buckling under the pressure of June/summer/desert/hell. We’ll make it, we’re use to it.  And I can’t complain, because our […]

If you follow me on Instagram, or caught the mention in this post, you already know we recently installed sod. I’m planning a post for the how-to, but in the meantime, I’ve been inspired to totally overhaul our yard to create an oasis to escape to. When it isn’t sweltering outside, that is. We’ve been […]

Oh, Sunday night…. It’s just not fair! How was your weekend? Did you have fun, get stuff done, relax? I don’t know about you, but I get pretty bummed Sunday nights after a great weekend.  I just want to throw a tantrum toddler style.  It won’t help.  But it’s tempting… I started the weekend with […]

Happy Weekend Eve! How was your Monday thru Friday? Things were good around here, just enjoying the weather, working for the Man and you know, living life.  We’ve got a birthday party this weekend, I’m meeting up with my mentee and then Football Sunday.  The usual.  It’s a good life 🙂 So, the garden.  I […]

Happy Sunday! How’d your weekend go? The garden post is coming at you a little late this month, but trust me, you aren’t missing much.  It’s hot and miserable here and the garden hates me right now.  She’s hanging in there, but every day I go out there and things are slooooowly shrinking away.  I […]

Happy SUMMER! I hope you are enjoying some beautiful weather out there! Phoenix is hot already, but hey, we knew it was coming. Besides, we had such a mild and gorgeous winter, I’m not even about to complain. Well, at least not to you!  I’ll save my whining for Joe. HA! Since the heat set […]

Hey there! How’s it going? I’m getting ready for my upcoming trips and really looking forward to some much needed time away. In the meantime, here is what our garden is doing right now: Out of the four tomato transplants I planted last month (check out February’s garden here), I’ve only got three left.  Something […]

Happy Valentines Day!  Sorry, I don’t have a lovey-dovey mushy-gushy post for today.  I’m showing a little love for our garden instead.  I feel slightly guilty telling you all about the gardening and warm weather we have going on when half of you are probably buried under snow or freezing your butts off, but it’s […]

Hello! Not sure if you noticed or not, but it’s winter.  Yeah, I know, SURPRISE! I have some local friends who are rocking the Phoenix winter garden, but I am so totally not.  We had a freeze last month that I was not prepared for, and well… let’s just say, my garden looks like death. […]

Happy Sunday! And Football Season! And the promise of Autumn! I hope everyone is having a great weekend.  Ours is ending very nice indeed.  I planned to get some pretty extensive yard work done today, but Mother Nature had other intentions and dropped a thunderstorm on me about halfway through.  Nothing like tilling and raking […]
