No, it's not. It's farmer's market Thursday and I'm skipping it today. I'm sending Tim there with a list and directions to NOT pick up any Amish baking this week. He is supposed to call and report his finds when he's done.
I got out early this morning and did some harvesting. Yes, we have tomatoes. There are still more on the plants but I left them to ripen a little bit more. I also got another zuke and some peppers. I think there is one more zucchini on the bush.
I haven't taken any pics of the gardens lately because I'm embarrassed by all the weeds. I should take a picture and post it and maybe it will shame me into getting out there and weeding. I keep saying "next weekend" and then something else comes up. Tim is on call this weekend so that means we won't be going anywhere this weekend and I'm not planning on any canning...maybe this weekend?
It dawned on me today that I haven't posted any pictures of Martin lately. I know you are all curious as to whether or not he's alive or not. He's very much alive and happy.
I love how on some of his leaves they are purple. He's covered in pretty little delicate flowers. I wish I could say the bonsai was doing as well. I think I'm going to give up on bonsais for a while.
So, everyone knows that I'm the queen of procrastination. I should be out cutting grass and picking up after Patchy. *mental note...don't give Patchy any more stuffed animals that he can gut out and leave stuffing all over the house.* Have I done any of that? No. Not yet at least. I have been finishing up the "classroom". I think we are pretty much ready for the official start of school in a couple of weeks. Aidan and I have done a great job in sneaking some classes in early but it's about to get interesting here with keeping both of the boys focused and doing their work.

I'm so glad that we have a room dedicated to the classroom. I think it makes it so much easier. The boys know that when they are in that room, it's time for school. In the house we used to live in we did school in the dining room and while it worked, it wasn't as easy. We always had school books and projects all over the place and Connor was easily distracted by other things going on in the home. Now, we all sit in this bright cheery room. I have to thank my mom and dad for the desk for the boys too. They got them cubbies and the door to put down on top of the cubbies. I'm glad I got a picture of it now while it's all neat and organized. I can guarantee that it won't look like this a month from now. I know to not even put that on my goal list for school. It's an impossible dream. But, it works for us. Plus, I can close the door when we're not using it.
Well, time to go out and cut some grass. It's gorgeous outside. I'm amazed by the weather we've had so far in August. It's noon and it's 60 degrees out. For August? Are you kidding me?! I am so not complaining though. It's perfection for me. I have windows open and a nice breeze is blowing through.
I hope everyone else is having a nice day!
