Spending Time Outdoors

I’m making an effort to be spending time outdoors lately and it’s so nice! Since we moved to this house, we’ve been busy with a newborn and it’s winter so there’s been lots of cold rainy days. Recently it’s been warmer during the days and I’m taking advantage of it!

Don’t worry, it’s really not too cold, I was barefoot as well. I’m doing some gardening, mainly just weeding and preparing a garden bed so I can plant in a month or two. I had this bright idea to turn the edge of the yard into a garden, where the grass wasn’t growing due to the fence leaning wonky (one more problem to fix, haha). Then I realised that if the grass wasn’t growing, my plants probably won’t grow either. Huh. Bright one, right? Anyways, I guess we’ll find out.

There’s another area near our driveway that gets lots of sunlight and I just took out a ton of weeds so hopefully I can grow something there! I love growing a garden, and it’s been a while since I had a successful one. Gardening isn’t my strong point but I really love it, so I’m trying to learn!

I’m planning to grow tomatoes, squash, courgette/zucchini, and cucumbers.

These wild ducks live right behind our house, and they wander around every property except ours, which isn’t accessible to them. I’m kind of sad to miss out on the ducks, but at the same time, walking in duck poo isn’t very nice, and they might eat the garden? Some day I want to get chickens!

The house where we used to live had a large variety of plants and there was always something blooming! Our current house is not like that but we have a few and like I said before, I’m excited to plant a garden. I currently have a few things growing in our window sill, which I’ll plant outside once it’s warmer and hopefully they’ll be established enough not to die…

Being a toddler is hard, right? And getting molars is especially hard.

I was just looking back at these photos of Abel… less than a year ago and he is already SO much bigger!

I noticed a bit of an issue with the sidebar of my blog so if you notice wonky text, I did too, but I can’t figure out how to fix it, so just bear with me.

    Your children are a delight. Teething is never fun. I feel for you and Abel. Abel is certainly bigger.

    Enjoy your new garden. Everyone I know who is from New Zealand tell me that they had great gardens there.

    God bless.

    Your yard is lovely Tilly! Enjoy being outdoors as spring comes your way!

    And yes molars are awful. Our 17 month old got her one year molars a month or so ago and it was rough.

    P.S. We messaged a couple times on IG – I’m Rosiesmaria on there. Felt like since we had a couple times before you went private I should introduce myself here or else I’d feel strange like I know we messaged a couple times but you wouldn’t lol if that makes sense.
