A Beautiful Story

If you have ten minutes I suggest grabbing some Kleenex and reading this story about a beautiful birth and a perfect child.

How Does Your Garden Grow?

Mary Mary quite contrary,
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells and cockle shells
And pretty maids all in a row.

I went to Costco about 3 weeks ago and bought a couple potted tomato plants. I thought this would be an easy way to start the garden that we have been talking about for the past few years. I don’t have a green thumb but since they were already potted I thought all I would have to do is water the plants and the tomatoes would grow. Simple enough? No, nothing is ever simple for me. I did what I do best and I forgot that I bought the darn plants and I found them nearly half dead yesterday sitting in the sun. Thankfully I was able to revive them. Most important lesson learned is that you have to REMEMBER that you have a garden to water. I guess I secretly thought that Alex and Seth would be so excited about our tomato garden that they would take care of it for me.
