While Immi and Ashland are at school, Lucian and I spent some quiet time in the garden. Lucian loves to find little pretty flowers (mostly weeds of sorts).
I have been in home-improvement hole this past few week. I painted kids room with Kid-proof paint (reportedly extra quality, durable and non-toxic, Immi wanted her room purple and the boys wanted it octonauts’ submarine color). And then painted over the meh-red wall on the kitchen/dining side black which took serious effort due to numerous details. Our dining chairs are still in the storage POD but, whatever.
Also, I made “coffee table” exactly to our spec ignoring most conventional notions of coffee tables (I used plumbing pipes for flexibility in height and an old door I found for $3). I need to find/make some cute pillows for the couch.
We also finally managed to turn over the vegetable garden bed which started growing all kinds of things our previous owners of this home planted — we are trying to remove most of the dirt and fill it with organic ones. Before we turned it over, we harvested some lettuce that was growing there.
