Sidelined by the thing eating my brain.

Between family things, weekend projects, and a two day headache from hell (that kept me home today), I haven't been exercising nearly as much as I wanted to. Tomorrow looks like rain, so this week is turning out to be a complete bust. I'm hoping Thursday and Friday fare better.

In other news, my garden is so far a major success. M wants demands to be outside every single evening, which means I have to find things for us to do while we are out there, lest she eat all of the gravel created by our crumbling steps. This means that everything is getting watered every day like it should. I even had to go out and get her her very own very small watering can. Next will be having her help me spread new mulch on both the area surrounding the garden beds, and where I decided to create a new bed in front.

The only struggle I am having is that she wants to "dig" with the "shovel" in the dirt. That means a couple of times a tomato and a marigold have nearly met their demise. Perhaps I will have the energy (and money) this next weekend to go buy her a large pot of her very own. I'm not sure there is a plant on early that could stand up to Two, but I'll find whatever is cheapest and try again in vain to teach her gentle. Perhaps when things start growing things that she can eat it will get through, but I doubt it. That is asking a lot for anything under ten. I got in trouble all through elementary school for picking peppers before they were ripe and salable on the farm.
