Home again

Matt and I got home safely Monday night. My camera was accidentally left in the car at the Springfield airport, so I don't have any pictures to share yet. When my mom sends me the ones off her camera I will share.

Bob's memorial was really nice. The chapel was full, there was some very pretty music, and the eulogies were not only personal but very funny. His friend Ashley talked about how Bob used to go act out the Rocky Horror Picure Show, and the pastor came back up and laughingly said he had never heard the RHPS preached from the pulpit before. Lots of laughs, and Bob would have loved it.

Matt was also able to spend some time with his friends. Zack spent the whole weekend with us, and the two of them went to the DeMolay Sweetheart dance. I really liked having some one on one time with him.

The rest of our time was spent visiting family and friends. It was wonderful catching up with the ones I haven't seen in a while, and in some ways heartbreaking. Time goes by too fast. Saturday night my brother and Sam took me out to play Bingo, which I had never done before. I didn't win anything, but it was fun!

I am having some serious computer problems between the screen on my laptop dying and Photoshop freezing every time I try to use it. I managed to upload this photo that shows you the garden bed Jack laid out for me while we were gone. It is simply huge! We have to rototill the soil still, and then get everything planted. I have a ton of work in the next couple of days to get done. I am using decorative rocks to lay out a strawberry bed where my daffodils are coming up, and I have to clear out and frame out a mulch area. I never thought I would end up saving coffee grounds, potato peels, and other decomp stuff, but the time has come to embrace the farmgirl I never knew I was...LOL.

I need to get to work. I will post updates as we get things growing as long as my electronics start cooperating!
