A Hodgepodge of Information

My Aunt Lupe and Uncle Robin came up this past weekend to see my parents' artwork (it was being shown at a local gallery).

And they both enjoyed playing with lil' Brianna...

More milk, please!

Brianna contemplates the meaning of art.

I also finished planting most of my garden. I ended up planting zucchini, cucumbers, beans, onions, lettuce and tomatoes.

Along with the veggies I also planted flowers and herbs, including Thai basil, cilantro and sunflowers.

In the above picture there's lemon thyme, lantana and some angelonia angustifolia (yeah, say that 5 times fast).

I also started knitting one of Plymouth Yarn's Encore 8-hour Baby Blankets. The one I am working on is called Building Blocks Blanket. I'm combining Bright Fuchsia with Summer Coral to create a color I call Raspberry Lemonade. I'm knitting it for Brianna before she goes back to her mama in July.

Ain't she adorable?

And one last thing. We're moving to a new apartment!! It will be within the next week or so. Our current apartment is filled with boxes and we are very ready to go!

As stated in the title, this post is definitely a hodgepodge.
