As it usually is, Mother's Day was nice this year, if not a little unusual because of the homebound nature of it.

I hadn't done any vegetable gardening in about a decade because when we moved to Iowa in 2010 we went away for half the summer every year so I wasn't around to take care of a garden in its time of greatest need. But I like the idea of being more self-sufficient and producing your own food, and Covid-19 motivated me to finally do just that. I was going to take a gardening class this year and plan things out to begin a garden in 2021, but a pandemic and economic crisis changes things, doesn't it? So instead I bought a book about gardening in Massachusetts and jumped right in.

We hadn't done a family nature walk in awhile, so on Memorial Day we went on a new-to-us trail that my sister and niece recommended. It was a beautiful trail through the woods and by a river. Other than some snakes we saw 😱, it was lovely!

In addition to delightful companionship, Boo Boo makes for a wonderful home security system.
