Things to do:

My to-do list is ever expanding and with Stuart being home I thought I could pound it out. Well, Neva has a cold and Stuart has some stuff to do tomorrow, so I am not sure how much I can do. But here are my goals for tomorrow:

Things I will probably get done:
Make chicken soup (I made the broth today)
Wash diapers
Mail package to mom (will have Stu do)
Buy cable to hook up DVD player (will have Stu do)
Cancel milk delivery (this makes me very sad.... but we need to save $, if I only had a cow, or a goat......)

Want to do, may get done:
Hook up printer (hopefully, not sure where the software is)
Sew one felt cupcake for Neva's kitchen
Turn compost
Get a small piece of plastic to cover one dining chair so Neva doesn't ruin the fabric ( I know, bad memories of grandma's house)
Make plum fruit leather or plum bread, or both, but doubtful. If nothing else, cut and freeze all the plums before they go bad.

So there it is, lofty for a Wednesday with a sick kid, but we'll see..........

We used cloth diapers for the first year of Neva's life. A mixture of Muttaqin Baby, Fuzzi Bunz, BellaBottoms, and Bum Genius. I washed them at home and loved knowing that I was not contributing to our land fill issues. Then I got lazy...we were moving, the holidays, lots of travel, and well, laziness. Over that last 9 months my guilt and pocket book really started to wear on me. So I gave them all a good wash and am back on the cloth diapering train. Aren't they perty???

Steamboat Botanic Gardens

We went to Steamboat Springs last weekend for my triathlon and took a family outing to the Steamboat Botanic Gardens.
This was a perfect place to bring Neva, she loved all the ponds and paths!

I just love the wonder and curiosity kids have.

She played here for a while, splashing and jumping in the water.

The flowers were beautiful!

The light was perfect!

Ooohhh, I just love those little piggies!

Fields of flowers!

Stu and Neva catching some shade!

Nature is perfect!

We finished our day in the Children's Garden where they had a great teepee! It was a wonderful day with the people I love the most!
