It's been an extremely overwhelming, weird, busy wave of "hello, I love you, see you later" around here lately and I'm still trying to figure it all out. I mean we've been doing this for awhile now, but this is the first time the underways are so long, and the time home is so short.
In the time Husband was home we had to pack littleSOMUCHtime (see what I did there?) We spent most of the time we did have in Arizona, visiting family and friends. We spent the duty days taking lunch to Husband (on the 4th we ate on the boat), and the days between hanging out as a family in the evenings. We are definitely learning how to make every minute count!
Charlie's eye is all healed up, we took the "cone of shame" off last week! He looks funny because he really needs a hair cut, but he is acting like himself again.
Earlier this week my mom and brother came to San Diego, they are staying until the end of the month to get out of the desert heat and watch Claira because I start my internship next week! It's been great to have someone around to talk to, get me out of the house, and it's always nice to have the extra help. This past week we have already done so much, Tuesday we went to the beach, Wednesday we went to the mall, Thursday we went for free Slurpees at 7Eleven and then to the Farmer's Market, Friday we went and played at Mission Bay Park, Yesterday we went to the swap meet, and this morning we went to church, lunch and to Lowes to pick up some plant food and fungicide for our garden plot!
Our neighborhood in housing has a community garden in one of the parks, I stumbled upon it during a walk earlier this year and asked the office how to get a plot. In early May, Ronnie and I went and bought a bunch of seeds and starter plants and planted lots of yummy things! We have tomatoes, bell peppers, jalapeños, cayenne peppers, corn, string beans, garlic, green onions, cucumbers, squash, zucchini, pumpkin, watermelon, cantaloupe, and strawberries. It's been exciting watching everything grow and so far everything that we've tried has been delicious. Except last week the pumpkin plant started growing this fungus, and the leaves started to die, I hope I can save it!
Speaking of saving the pumpkins, I should probably walk over and take care of that before it gets too late in the afternoon!
I think I finally have one to post!
