I started my seeds just over a week ago. I placed them in my terrarium to keep them moist and because it has a grow light and partial sun from the window. Unfortunately they are starting to mold. I have started to move some into pots, but I have limited space until it warms up.
 
I am anxious for planting. I have new things planned this year and have been trying to work out placement of everything. I have the bed and arbor in place, but it is still too early and I needs soil for the pots and barrel. I hope to start seeds soon. I keep buying more plants. I need start showing restraint.

I have also been busy making baby stuff. I made a blank for my sister and am working on an afgan. I also made a few baby hats for a swap partner. I can't wait to meet mynew nephew. I took a little vacation time to spend over there.
 
My mother had minor surgery to remove some skin cancer recently. During the presurgery exam they noted something on her EKG something  like PVC's I think. I wasn't there fr that but both Joyce and I sat with her while she waited 3hrs for the Dr. and afterwards Becky met us and we took mom home with takeout. The side line is she has to see a cardiologist now and also was told she has fibrous nodules on her thyroid that needs to be checked for cancer. I try to follow my own advice and not worry too much until you know for sure. Of course both her parents died of cancer so that doesn't help much.

Also this week I am working hard to declutter and clean the house. I even signed us up for chorewars.com which makes it into a game. The kids are still resistant. So far I am winning this month.

They have helped with my baking though. We made lemon meringue pie this week, yum. But Alex only liked the meringue topping. So I promised to make meringues. While looking for a recipe I found meringue mushrooms which are very cute and realistic. someone at work thought I was eating mushrooms. They are addicting though. I like the wafer like crispness and they melt in your mouth.
