Garden 2016 ready to go

In between rain showers we were able to get the garden beds ready for planting.

Turns out I have a crop of onions and shallots without even doing anything

We planted various tomatoes, and some zucchini and cucumbers that we grew in the greenhouse. also peppers and eggplant.

I had a lot of plants left over so they went into containers on the front patio. I will be interested to see which plants do better.

Memorial Day: first boat ride of the season

Since Memorial Day seems to mark the beginning of summer, we took the boat out for the first outing of the season. Here I am at the wheel on Lake Conesus. I am a speed demon. (No, I'm not)

After two days of rain, the weather was just right. I was Snapchatting the scenery left and right (note I have discovered the cute stickers on Snapchat)

Look at these two! They have the pose down to a science.

As always we like to have a snack destination, so halfway through we stopped for a cheese plate. Boating works up an appetite!

Spring showers

The weather delivered rain as promised. I love watching it from our side porch. Everything looks super green.

Rain video

Ooooh, a little bit of thunder!

I am super happy to see the ferns we planted next to the side porch growing. It makes it seem like a little forest.

And some columbine from seeds that my friend Aprille gave me came up too!

Donut, where have you been?

We haven't been to Ridge Donut in ages!

It all came back to us though. Like riding a bike.

Weekend plans: Bathroom update

The weather is not cooperating with our Memorial Day weekend plans. Rain is in the forecast. That's okay because on our to-do list is updating the bathrooms. Picking out the color is the best part.

Aaron figured out a way to keep the roller ready for the second coat.

Look at this blue! It's going to feel like a tropical island getaway in here!

Aaron is also updating the lighting fixtures, the drawer pulls and going to retile the floor. Exciting!

Allium and Iris

I'm pretty sure I take this same photo every year. I can't help it! These alliums are just so impressive.

I would love to get a time lapse video of one of these blooming.

The iris are blooming too which are also impressive! (sounds like a great band name "Allium and Iris"

Splitty sharey

When you order a salad and he orders a pizza. Splitty sharey?

That is what I call it when I order something good and Aaron orders something good and we share each item with the other. Sometimes it just a bite, sometimes it's half a sandwich in exchange for one of three tacos.

Some people are vehemently against food sharing. I've heard "If she wanted this she could have ordered it herself."

Some feel food sharing makes you a better person.

If you are going to splitty sharey... here are some tips.
