March 18th, 2016

Spring is getting closer! I’ve been looking through a catalog that Mom bought at work. It’s called the Whole Seed catalog. We like going through catalogs.  It’s kind of a harmless wishful thinking! I love all the pictures of the vegetables. Mom likes growing heirloom vegetables. We have a whole bookmark folder of various places to get them. We usually end up getting them at our local garden store though. Maybe someday we will be able to order them from the internet.
Today we’re going to talk about my friend, Milton. Milton was the third Build-a-Bear that came into our family. He is one of my best friends. He likes reading the most out of all of us. He especially enjoys some of Mom’s science books. He also likes to help. He lifts things for some of the tinies that live here. He’s also very patient with some critters around here who don’t have a lot of patience themselves- like Oliver!

Mom is on vacation this week. We haven’t done anything really interesting yet. Mom is in charge of Graham this week while her sister is at work. We did spend some time today cooking food for the rest of the week. This is ‘spanish rice’. I’m not sure why it’s called that, but Mom loved it as a little girl. So when her parents are gone on vacation, she always makes it. (It’s got a lot of calories, so they won’t eat it!) There’s enough to eat all week!
I hope you’re all having a good week! Talk to you next Friday

  1. Hi Marlowe
    Exciting news hre. We've got one too!!!!! A baby, I mean. I'm not allowed to show his photo because his parents don't want him to go on-line until he's big enough to decide that for himself.
    Anyway, my Mam is his Grandma, so I THINK that makes him my nephew. Can't understand it though, he only seems to like milk - not honey or veggies. I grow heirloom ones too. It is fun doing the catalogue hunting, isn't it?
    Have a great week with your Mom.
