Look what I saw staring at my garden this morning .

After we got the drip going in the garden, David decided we needed to make some changes. (We had some areas being sprayed that weren't supposed to get water.) Sooo... he found a bag of goodies from the World Ag Expo (samples), and laid them out on the kitchen counter top to examine the possibilities...

Nathan, Spencer and Jared helped me with the planting today...Well kinda helped... they got hot and tired and thirsty. It was a lot of work according to Spencer. David had plowed it so well that Jared sunk in up to his knees. But we had fun and some of it even got planted!

A few years ago we were given a Rosemary plant trimmed in the shape of a tree for Christmas. I planted it in the backyard on a mound. It has grown over 12 feet wide and has beautiful purple blossoms. We decided to take some of the cuttings and plant them out front by the street to keep down the weeds and hopefully to look pretty someday. I also planted some on a mound closer to the front of the house.

This is what the temple looked like when we came out Saturday.
When we got out of the temple today it was raining! We got home to Bakersfield to find heavy rain all afternoon here too. It's beautiful and the flowers and trees love it. We're having some great temple experiences this month. In addition to our usual Tuesday morning shifts, Anita, Randy and I worked last Saturday evening. Next week we are going to a special session on Monday which will be officiated by the temple presidency. We will meet in the chapel and the session will follow. Then we are all having dinner together. The presidency is furnishing the entree and the ordinance workers are bringing salads and desserts. We are really looking forward to being with with all of our temple friends. There are some wonderful people on our shift. We plan to spend the night in the temple apartments so we won't have to drive back to Bakersfield and then return again early the next morning.

I got to babysit Kacy, Will & Ed today while Karrie went shopping. Jared and Spencer joined us. We colored with markers, rode scooters and trikes on the patio, ate cheese crackers and drank juice, raced cars and trucks in the toyroom (see Ed and Jared), made a train out of the bar stools . ( Will was the engineer.), and had Mac & Cheese and Dino chicken nugguts for lunch and ice cream for dessert.
