But - back to planting - we didn't even realize today was technically spring when we started this project, how appropriate.
These are the flowers we spent at least an hour picking out.
Annnd I got a blackberry bush..tree...bush..vine??
Our three potters before our fabulous gardening skills:
And these are the potters after we did our magic!! I have to say, gardening is seriously hard work, my back was killing me. My dad has a huge garden with greens and veggies and I did not realize how taxing it could be physically - hats off pops!
They might look a little sparse but when they start blooming it will fill completely out.
Last but not least, my blackberry vine..? :)
After we finished with the gardening the fatkid decided to re-wire our whole tv/dvd/cable/surround sound/xbox which was interesting and time consuming - there were some holes put into our walls but it turned out great. After I unpacked all our food from Costco and separated it all out (I am a big fan of washing and portioning fruits and veggies asap so they are ready to go in the fridge) I made our "clean" turkey chili for lunches and made another (3rd) attempt a "clean" zucchini bread and failed miserably :( They keep coming out wet on the inside, even after I cook them for the longest recommended time. Oh well, there's always tomorrow.
As far as my three goals for this last week :
Start and keep using the fitness journal I bought - did not succeed at this one.
Goals for the upcoming week:USE MY FITNESS/DIET JOURNALdo my kick butt routine at least twice perfect my "clean" zucchini bread recipe
