Busy few days in Ohio

It's been a busy few days for me! Here's some highlights of the last two days.

Tuesday 5-4
I had a great night's sleep in Miss L's room. I got dibs on Julie's bed. It was very comfortable and I liked all the beads hanging from the canopy.

Romperoo had a busy day planned for us. We needed to get the garden ready for planting veggies. She told me that she's very excited about planting her garden. Last year they had just moved into this house and didn't have a lot of time to get veggies in.

So, we spent the morning prepping the dirt. Lots of hoeing, digging and raking. Since I am low to the ground, it was my job to pick up all the weeds.

Then we went shopping! We got lots of herbs, zucchini, butternut squash, beans, peas, peppers, cucumbers and several types of tomatoes, including a cool purple heritage variety. Shopping just about wore me out! I am attaching pictures of some of the plants we purchase today.

It's a good thing that I have my tools with me. The screen door broke and I had to help romperoo get it back on track. Works fine now!

When Miss L got home from school, we practiced the piano for a while and then went over to her friend's house. Her friend's mom was really impressed to meet me and I thought it was really cool that she likes American Girls!

Tomorrow is another busy day - more gardening, soccer and Cinco de Mayo!

Wednesday 5-5
After everyone left for school, romperoo and I got busy making lunch for the teachers at school. Not only is it Cinco de Mayo, but it is Teacher Appreciation week. We made 48 Chicken Verde Enchiladas by 10 AM and made a complete mess out of the kitchen! I'm sure the teachers will enjoy the food!

After dropping off the enchiladas, we got busy planting. Romperoo let me plant the herbs in the pots. I think I did a pretty good job. I really like the purple basil.

Then we got almost all the rest of the veggies in the ground. Boy, that was a lot of work. We worked until everyone came home from school and then had to start our running around. Miss L invited me to her soccer practice, so I got changed into my soccer outfit. Coach Matt said that I could play, but I had to cover up my earrings on the field. Romperoo tied a piece of pre-wrap around my head and I was good to go. He sure does make those girls work! I was exhausted at the end of practice.

We got home and had a fiesta to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. We had Chicken Verde Enchiladas (bet you didn't see that coming!), spicy rice and "Cheater 'Ritas." Those are non-alcoholic margaritas and they are addicting!

Time to turn in. Tomorrow is a visit to the dentist and then maybe to the zoo to see the grand opening of the polar bear exhibit. I get to see some lacrosse, too!
