~*catching my breath*~

Oh I have been so busy I hardly know where to begin. First, I was finally able to get our neighborhood watch going at our end of the street (we have one at the other end- 4 streets down, but not including our end) and I am the chair. We are planning a street festival as a fundraiser for the K9s and that has been taking up a lot of time. I have been getting ready on Beautification Committee to start planting for the year, and if you recall my site in the city is City Hall...well they are re-doing the back of it with a new walkway, new bike stand, with stamped concrete, etc. It's all very exciting and I have been meeting with the contractors deciding on pattern and color and style, etc. I can hardly wait for them to get started so I can see how great it is going to look! I have also agreed to be nominated as secretary in the Neighborhood Alliance. It is the umbrella organization that all the neighborhood groups fall under. And I have still been working on preparing for my City Council run this year. I have met with some union officials and have several unions who are willing to endorse my campaign. Whew....I am tired already just listing this all. But I miss stopping by and reading all your blogs. I don't know when I will have the time to stop by again...but I certainly hope it will be soon. I hope all my blog friends are well and enjoying spring. We have a beautiful day here in Connecticut today. And we are supposed to have another one tomorrow. Right now I am enjoying watching the Red Sox beat the Yankees! This picture is from Easter, I can hardly believe how big my kids are...they tower over both of us! How did that happen? Well, there is laundry to fold and dinner dishes to put in the dishwasher.
Have a great day!

~*hello world*~

April 3rd I started my vegetable garden seeds, April 7th a broccoli seed sprouted. Now I have tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini and pumpkins all sprouting... it is so exciting. If the weather would only cooperate and we would get some warmth... it is still so cold and we have had so much rain. There is sun, but it just has not been warm!
Hopefully the warm weather will be coming soon...
Have a great day!
