#thisweek 6.16.17 Happy Father's Day!

Posted by Simply Pallets on

Hello everyone! It sounds like no matter where you live in the country this week you may have been experiencing some crazy weather. Temperatures way up then way down and rain and then serious sunshine. For us, that meant Matt was paying some extra attention to the garden this week and we snuck in a night of camping on one of the dry, cool nights. 

I guess I was being optimistic when I thought a 44' x 36' garden would be enough. We have plants everywhere! The garden is growing, we have cherry and lemon trees growing outside our bedroom, and there are avocado trees growing in the laundry room. The fruit trees are budding, blueberries and blackberries are coming in, and probably a whole bunch of other things I don't know about. The nice thing? I don't have to worry about it. Matt has taken control of the growing food situation and even though that means more and more of our space is taken up by who knows what I am totally okay with it :)

On the work side, things are slowing down. We had a bit of a crazy week because of Father's day orders. It meant we had a lot of expedited signs and we were driving to the post office every day since we didn't have the time to plan the pick ups. We always make it work, but it can make things a little overwhelming. I am happy to report (I think), the last minute orders are done for now. Until Christmas!

Now for the fun part- we went camping for the first time this year! The whole reason we moved to the western part of the state was so we could experience the beauty of the Blue Ridge mountains. We have been so busy at the house that we have only managed to sneak in some day hiking, but the overnight trip was fantastic! Macy swam for the first time thanks to the coaching of ten or so women who were hiking together. 

On a final note, I wanted to wish all the fathers out there a very happy Father's day! Matt and I are lucky enough to have amazing fathers, a step-father, and many father figures in our lives and we could not be more thankful for them. Even twelve hours away they always manage to be there for us whether it is in the form of a phone call, a visit, helping to build our tiny house, helping to move- or whatever else we manage to throw at them. I hope all of you have a father or father figure in your life you can celebrate on Sunday, because life would not be the same without them.

 

Have a wonderful week everyone!

-Alyssa
