1. Yes. And actually Jon PAID FOR a One-on-One training session for me. But I’m still scared. I know it’s going to take me forever to learn how to use it. Hold me.

    Awesome. The picture.

    The garden makes me wish more than ever you were my neighbor. That & the 20 pounds I need to lose. And the wine in my fridge that wishes to be opened as I plug in your MacBook & totally convince you it’s just like your Dell only better. And easier. And hey, I I can do it…
    And classes… Ugh(that’s me making the gag me with a spoon gesture) boring! So if you decide to go, fly to Houston & teach me. I’ll bring the wine.

  2. It’s the stuff that comes from the heart that really matters. I got cards, flowers, and runny, burnt pancakes. Happy Mother’s Day, Sis!

        1. Thank you, Mark. I usually start celebrating my birthday in November. But, I’m more than happy to bump it up a few more months. 🙂

  3. Love to see you back in action… writing a funny post!
    I’m hysterical over those professional photos… oh, my… and you still bought them!

    1. Thanks Donna! I never saw those pictures until after Jon bought them and they came home in Elliana’s back pack a few weeks later. I said to Jon, “In this world of digital photography, did you not LOOK at these before you bought them?”

      And he said, “It took us like 15 minutes to take that picture. He took 2. This one was the better of the 2. So I just said, I’ll take it.”


      I would have loved to see the worse one!

        1. I hate to admit this but I just came back to your site so that I could giggle again… yes, at your family’s expense. My apologies. John and Elliana both looked so perfect in those two photos taken at home… you weren’t hired as the professional photographer.

  4. Oh Sandy, I’m so glad the photos you took were so good. That picture made me laugh out loud again, even after LOLing 100 times on facebook already.

    LETTUCE. I planted my first garden last year, so I am no expert, but you can eat the lettuce as soon as it is big enough to cut. In fact the baby leaves are the sweetest and yummy. BUT you must cut and use it before it turns bitter. The longer it stays in the ground the more bitter it gets. So go taste it. If it is bitter don’t panic. The great thing is that lettuce grows back!!! Just cut it with a sharp knife close to the base and it should grow back. I have no idea about the broccoli though.

    1. Thank you for the lettuce tips!! (also known as “lettuce tips,” as in the kind that you cut off and eat??) That was such a lame joke.

      So, by “big enough to cut” do you mean like a couple inches? I keep looking for it to grow as big as bunches I see in the stores. I don’t know…

      1. Little leaves are yummy. Think those organic baby lettuces in the plastic containers.
        Just taste it. If it tastes good cut it and make a salad.
