The Not-So Terrible Twos

Worked a half day this morning, mostly doing admin. stuff. Then I babysat my nephew Brett in the afternoon for a few hours. He is 2 1/2 now, adorable, and a real bundle of energy. I took a tip from a friend and we went to the park first and ran around on the jungle gym for about an hour. I think it tuckered him out enough that when we came back home he sat and played with his books while I gardened in the back yard. Dean came home from work and we made pork chops and veggies (such a nuclear family!). And after a little dinner Brett fell sound asleep! He was still fast asleep by the time his dad came to pick him up. Ahhhh . . . .

View of the back yard/side yard. I love the little geranium pots. They make me think of Italy.

I love the view of your garden--looks like something out of a magazine. Very Italian, those pots.

Next year, my yard will look like that. This year we're pruning trees. Harvey is loose with a chainsaw.
