Finally, Spring is in full effect here in the ‘burgh.
We’ll be having Pancakes at Midnight tomorrow night to kind of kick things off, if you will.
I’ve got seedlings who need to get into the ground.
We’re working on getting some poorly placed and unsightly bushes removed to make way for some blueberry bushes and a nice little sitting area, complete with bench.
We are stashing money to attend the Northeast Unschooling Conference. My in-laws might actually be joining us this year — will be great for them.
We’ve completely rearranged the first and basement floors of our house to suit our needs better. The flow of the house is SO much better now. The second floor is going to have its time at well, but not quite yet.
I’ve been contemplating what needs to be done out in our backyard to start to set up a permaculture garden and forest (to incorporate the small white pine forest that we already have).
I am becoming more and more in love with the concept of yardsharing. I have some lovely friends who might be game for sharing yard space and or having produce swaps.
We signed up for a different CSA this year. Instead of going through Kretschmann’s Farm, we’ll be going through Penn’s Corner Farm Alliance. We just wanted to try something different this year and save a little money in the process. I’m sure I’ll be doing my best to take and post pictures of our weekly shares.
I am going to try to start having unschooling park dates again, but over at Brighton Heights Park and not up in Sewickley. This park is just up the hill on Benton Avenue from our house on Parviss Street. It just got too difficult to organize transportation to make it to Sewickley once a week, among other reasons for me stopping the meet-ups last year.
Elijah has also found a love for the periodic table of elements…I hung one up and he’s been looking at and studying it ever since!
I’ll be selling some of my handmade goodies and clothing at a neighbourhood flea market on Saturday, June 5th.
Our street (3800 block of Parviss Street, 15212) will be having it’s street-wide yard sale on Saturday, June 26th.
We’ll be hosting the 2nd Annual Ice Cream Social Warfare at our home again this Summer on Sunday, June 27th and we hope to see you there!
Back in April, we went to Oklahoma City, OK to visit friends and family that we haven’t seen in almost 5 years. It was nice to see people, but I don’t miss the place at all…I’m quite at home here in the ‘burgh.
There’s more. There’s always more
