Simple Sunday – Leprechaun Update and the Turning of the Soil

As promised, here is the update on the boys’ Leprechaun trap.  The pesky little Leprechaun came.  He plucked the bait – a penny – off the double sided tape within the trap, the tape that was suppose to hold him tight.  He got away but…

He left behind a handful of gold, chocolate coins and his green shimmering shoes – stuck fast to the tape in the trap.


On a completely unrelated note – this weekend, the first official spring weekend of the year – we took a look at the sorry state of our garden bed and decided to turn the soil.  With implements of gardening, we took to the land.

While Husband did most of the heavy labor, Carter had no shame in taking most of the credit.

The final product – a garden bed with fluffy, aerated soil.  It is rich with earthworms and ready for the seeds and plants we have yet to decide upon.  Carter has started a list.  Cody is more interested in the placement of our friendly garden gnome.

I am happy to once again feel the warmth of the sun on my skin and the damp and giving soil in my hands.

A great song to be stuck in my head.

    I must remember this post. My son is wondering about the tooth fairy. He has a wobby tooth – maybe we ought to set a trap for her….

  2. I am so envious of all the green in your yard! We are still living in a black and white movie here and if I tried to turn the soil, it would break my metal shovel! Love the gnome…

    I love the gnome! So adorable, guarding your garden. May your harvest be bountiful. 🙂 And thanks for the update on the leprechauns — what fun all these small creatures bring to our lives.
