Lately we've been . . .

1. Watching Oliver get adjusted to his new digs:

















I admit, he looks really relaxed and content in these pictures.  He has moments where he feels like that, it seems.  However, he still spends much of the day hiding, and managed to get himself locked in the linen closet for most of the day yesterday!  We finally figured out where he was late afternoon, when we heard muffled meows coming from upstairs.  :)

2. Celebrating John's birthday with Pecan Pie:
















And Nutloaf, buttermilk-chive mashed potatoes, roasted asparagus, and Quick Gravy:
















3. Starting plants for our backyard urban farm:
















We are ecstatic that we saved nearly enough TP rolls to make little pots!  (Egg cartons to the rescue!)  We spent a total of $4 on cheap baking sheets from the dollar store, and a few bucks at Target on some plastic pots for herbs.

















4. Eating pizza:
















(It's kind of a Sunday night "thing" at our house.)

5. And still getting organized:




















Spice racks went up yesterday!  Wahoo!  Our kitchen is finally organized, which is a big deal for this cook.  Very few unpacking projects remain . . . .

What have you been up to?  Anyone else chomping at the bit to get gardening?

Yay for TP starter pots! You might want to space them out a little bit--mine tended to get moldy if they were too close together. Right now I have two tomato seedlings just getting a bit bigger and stronger before I put them in the ground... :)

Eileen, thanks for the advice. We don't have a ton of space, but we'll try to give them a little more breathing room!
