For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows grace and favor and glory - honor, splendor and heavenly bliss! No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.

Busy and Beat

Well, sort of. I'm pretty tired today, and headachy, and my eye hurts.

Let me explain the eye. I had lazer eye surgery back in October on my right eye, my left eye has perfect vision already. I'm convinced that I'm just not a very good patient. Lately I haven't been putting eye drops in my eye, and at about 4am this morning I rolled over and I must have opened it a little bit and it HURT SOOO BAD!!! I can't even tell you... I think it was just extremely dry or something. And of course due to the pain it woke me up, and then started to tear up like crazy, so I was not only wide awake but my face was covered in tears. Ugh! I finally got back to sleep, only to repeat the event 2 more times before my alarm went off. So annoying. So today I've been trying to be a good patient and I've been applying the fake tear drops. Yippy skippy.

I'm still in my pajamas... at 2:30pm. I'm ok with that.

I decided to make a big batch of spaghetti sauce in my crock pot today. I had some leftover tomato paste that I wanted to use up. I went with this recipe, and I'm sure it's going to be good because my house smells amazing. You should go check it out! Then you can be like me and have a big huge batch of sauce to stow away in your freezer.

I also planted seeds today in my indoor growing tray thingy. I planted peppers, lettus of 2 different types, marigolds, nasturtiums, parsley, and pansies. "Why all the flowers? I thought you were growing a veggie garden?" Well, SFG (Square Food Gardening) suggests planing some flowers in with your veggies. Apparently marigolds and nasturtiums are particularly good for pest control. Who knew!? Not me, I knew absolutely nothing until recently. Which just goes to show that it's never too late to learn and pick up new skills.

Ok, back to the grind of sitting around in my pj's, putting drops in my eye, and hoping the girls sleep for another 30 minutes.

Ouch! Take care of that eye...I can imagine what it must feel like.

I'll be so happy when I have fresh tomatoes for spaghetti sauce! I was going to make Swiss steak last night, but found I was completely out of the sweet chili sauce I'd canned last fall from my garden tomatoes. Bummer, I won't make that dish without it!

My kids really want to start a veggie/fruit garden this spring and I'm totally clueless! I want it to be a good experience for them so I need to do my research NOW! Good tip about planting flowers with the veggies to keep the pests away (we have a huge snail invasion here).
