Feeling Better

I am happy to be back working at my computer this morning. I still have a cold, but my functioning level has increased. AMEN! I was a bit concerned about how I was going to do everything needed of me today.

There are only three weeks left until our VBS starts, and I am the coordinator. Tonight is our second staff meeting, and I really need to be there. We will be preparing all of the crafts for the kids. It is our plan to have everything cut and ready to go that way we will spend less time preparing the craft and more time working with it and having fun together.

It is amazing how many things go undone and how much more work gets created when mom is not up to snuff for just a few days. I am behind on my Internet duties. I've put off updating the bills. That was honestly a little over due before I got sick. Oh well...at least they are getting paid on time, right? The laundry is calling, and surfaces could use a little attention. Not to mention the garden! We haven't had rain for two days, and I haven't even gotten out there to tend it. Now, it is supposed to rain again tomorrow, so it will likely wait a little longer.

I am excited to see what my garden produces this year. We are only growing a few things with space being so limited. We are in the city with a very small yard. I interpserce the vegetables with the flowers. The perennials are doing so well that there really isn't any room for vegetables anymore. We have lettuce, which doesn't seem to be happy with all the rain. We have tomatoes, which I hope to can for the first time with my youngest son. We have bell peppers and one cucumber plant that seems to have made it.

Next year will be a new approach. I think we will grow our vegetables in containers as opposed to planting them with the flowers. I would really like to grow more, and that seems to be a workable solution. Has anyone had any luck with this approach? I'd love to hear your experiences.

Too bad no one helped out while you were sick, but I'm glad you didn't do all that work while you were sick. Better to rest. I wish I had room for a garden, but I live in an apartment. As soon as I have a yard, that is one of the first things on the list, a vegetable garden.

Sorry to hear you were sick. That's a big job to be in charge of VBS. Ours is going on this week and I'm so happy to be working in it! The kids have really been very cooperative and attentive--can you believe no behavior problems with 98 4th-6th graders!!! That's just one department. Our craft ran over time today though so we didn't have time to do our ticket drawing at the end so we'll just draw more tomorrow. It's so much fun and exciting to teach God's Word to so many children.
