This is the towel rack I made for the new bathroom. The door knobs are vintage a gift from an old family friend. I used my handy dandy cricuit that a neighbor gave me to make the saying and I heat presses it on. The girls are in love with it and I feel like it adds a little motivation to begin the day

My grow light from last year died and I had to restart some of our seeds. We got these nifty new sled grow lights that come in strips. You can have just the blue lights on or the red or both depending what growth cycle you are trying to encourage. So far my seedlings are really responding and I am excited to see that my plants are doing better than they did with the old grow light. I repurposed this old plant rack to make a seed starting station in our dining room. I cant wait for all the yummy garden goodness.

Me and the sidekicks are in the home stretch on the bathroom project. This weekend the girls and I got the last of the grout done for the shower tile. Now we wait for it to finish curing so we can test it out. If you look real close next to the toilet you can see the linear drain we installed. Lets pray that it works as well as the company says it does. We also go the new toilet installed. The side kicks are excited to report that it actually works. The space saving design fits better than the old one and we actually have some clearance between the wall and the tank now. The sink is ready to be hooked up after work this week. We now have a working vanity light over the sink. I splurged and bought new fluffy towels for me and the girls first time in 12 years that I have bought bath towels.

I still a little dry wall work to do on the ceiling by the light fixture, then its ready for paint. After that we will be hanging the shower curtain and this job will be done.

This month we are beginning to start seeds for the garden. We have 2 kinds of lettuce, some yarrow, and 4 pots with artichoke seeds. The yarrow sprouted this week and we are hoping to see some lettuce and artichokes start sprouting this week.
