Inspiration & Out of Space

13 months

I'm going to start posting most of my photos on my new Flickr account since I'm out of space on Google. I'm still working on adding and organizing all the photos.

I've been fairly uninspired in the garden and in the kitchen lately. I'm not sure why. The garden is way over grown and there are no vegetables planted. I guess it seemed more stressful to deal with than relaxing and enjoyable this year. I have been cooking and using local, seasonal foods from the farmers market, but nothing especially exciting. I need some inspiration!

I've been spending a lot of time with the dogs and focusing on training. My posts have been regular and are HERE.

Finley is amazing and so much fun. She is just over 13 months and is a wonderful little girl. She loves goofing around and playing games. She smiles a lot. She loves putting things around her neck (dog leashes is a favorite) or trying to put clothes on. At daycare and at home, she does a great job of playing by herself (filling and emptying containers or pushing things around). We go to playgrounds and have lots of fun on the slide and swings. When you give her a phone, she puts it up to her face and yells into it. It's hysterical. She isn't sure about swimming and still hates being changed. As of this past week, she has started to get upset when someone leaves the room or leaves her alone.

She is an eating machine. She probably eats more than I do and more variety than most kids her age. She pretty much eats anything you give her, including pickles, sauerkraut, yogurt, salad, beans, pasta, pizza, any kind of meat or cheese, asparagus, berries, canteloupe, fish etc. I hope that continues for a long time. She takes a multivitamin, vitamin D and fish oil and I still nurse her in the morning.

We have several trips planned this summer, which I am really looking forward to. I'm hoping that getting out of town will give me the inspiration that I am looking for. We are taking our RV to Vancouver Island and to Northern California for combined vacations and flyball tournaments.

Right now Ben is in Boston visiting Tufts and deciding if he wants to be a vet
