Happy Birthday Daniel!

Today is Daniel's 24th Birthday!  Happy Birthday Darling!!!

I hope he is enjoying his day today.  He got the day off work, we slept in late, got up, I gave him his presents (3 books- what else would my husband want?), made a cake, it overflowed in the oven (so we ended up eating a half-baked gooey cake! Yum!!), I made him steak and potatoes for brunch (while he read out loud from one of his new books to me and Ezekiel), and now he's off to get a massage with the gift certificate I gave him LAST valentine's day.  I hope he enjoys that- he needs to relax!  When he gets home we plan to do some yard work together and FINALLY start our garden.  Daniel and a couple friends went on Monday to go get dirt for all our different gardens, so we have a lovely mound on our back patio waiting to become useful.   

Since it is my husband's birthday, I thought I would write a list of a few of the reasons I love him!  Here it goes...

He loves God with all his heart.
He is sincere.
He is very relaxed.  He stays calm and collected no matter what.
He loves to learn.
He loves to apply what he learns.
He is intelligent and wise.
He isn't caught up in wasteful activities- he spends his time well.
He is handsome.
He is frugal.
He values simplicity.
He is a wonderful father.
He overlooks my faults.
He's honest.
He works very hard to provide for our family.
He's funny.
He has goals in life.
He loves people well.  He's a good friend.
He's fun to be around!
There are a million more reasons...

I am so blessed to have a wonderful husband!  Happy Birthday Daniel!  I love you so much!

Moving the gardening stuff up the blog....

Yeah, if it's that warm, I'd definitely avoid the lettuce and spinach...or plant them in the shade! I know that they have a New Zealand Spinach...I don't think it's technically spinach, but it tastes similar and it's heat tolerant. Peppers, tomatoes, melons, cucumbers, and zuchinni would probably do great! I know you can get bush varieties of zuchinni and cucumbers, so they should fit in your squares!

And Happy Birthday to Daniel!

Hmm I will have to look for new zealand spinach-- I love spinach but knew it wouldn't do well in this heat. We STILL don't have our garden in... BUT HOPEFULLY this afternoon... it's been a busy week for Daniel and he has to build my frame! Thanks for the tips. I will definitely have to do melon, too...
