As opposed to some down...I've been pretty much out of things with a virus (human, not computer) for a few days. But the worst seems to be over. I'm back to working on my craft challenge.
Dollygirl is finishing her term three exams--then she's done for the summer. She has a temporary job every day watering a vacationing neighbour's flowers (a lot of flowers). And her swimming lessons start up again in July.
Ponytails wrote her grade nine science exam yesterday--so she's done too. She's getting together with some homeschooled/used to be homeschooled friends for a movie (Brave) and end-of-school celebration later today.
Our zucchini has pretty much lost its fight, and the marigolds are similarly terrible--both those in the regular flowerbed, and those we added to the lasagna garden. So we can't blame the peat moss. The two apple trees and the magnolia blossomed too soon because of the mild winter, then got hit by frost (i.e. no apples this year). It just seems to be an all-round terrible year for gardening (not including the neighbour with the flowers?). Anybody else?
(One thing that has done almost too well: our hostas by the side pathway are so big you almost can't get by them. Go figure--I don't think you can eat hostas, though. --You're kidding. You can?)
