I found a picture of this online the other day, but have not been able to find anywhere that sells a preformed corrugated chair to start the project. Guess its time for me to get creative and make my own. I am really hoping to do this next spring! I think it would be awesome to have an entire sitting area in a garden. Four to six chairs and a table? Hmmm!

I will try and post some pictures next spring when I start this project. I know fall is one of the best times to put out grass seed, but I really do not see myself getting very far at this stage in my pregnancy. (I have 3 weeks, left)

The ultimate grow-your-own—the grass armchair. Here is the answer to those tricky design problems—where to put the garden chairs, what kind to buy, will they get rusty, be comfortable, be green, look good. First decide on the best location for it—at the back of the garden so you can enjoy it in peace, or at the front so that you can watch it grow. But it can’t be moved so be serious about this. After you assemble the cardboard frame, you fill it with soil, sprinkle the grass seeds over it, and water it daily. Watch it grow. And enjoy.


An Entrapment

My love, I have tried with all my being
to grasp a form comparable to thine own,
but nothing seems worthy;

I know now why Shakespeare could not
compare his love to a summer’s day.
It would be a crime to denounce the beauty
of such a creature as thee,
to simply cast away the precision
God had placed in forging you.

Each facet of your being
whether it physical or spiritual
is an ensnarement
from which there is no release.
But I do not wish release.
I wish to stay entrapped forever.
With you for all eternity.
Our hearts, always as one.
~Anthony Kolos

I do not believe in reincarnation, but if it could happen I would say that my oldest son would definitely be an old soul. There are many many times I call him my little old man. The photo above was the first time I felt like I actually captured him in his “little old man” look. This last winter we got a good snow for our area and when most other children would be out playing, eating, or building a igloo in the snow, my son head down with hands in pocket just contemplatively walked in it for a few minutes and then was ready to go back in the house.

He is a very sweet old soul. He loves his sister, “Sugar Plum Fairy”, and talks to his littlest brother in mommies belly, asking regularly when he gets to hold him. He loves his cousin dearly and he finds that she is warm, sweet and cuddly, but wiggles a whole lot when you feed her. I am only hoping he does so well when his little brother arrives.

He is my thinker and ponderer. He will tell me from time to time, “Hmmm, let me think about that”. He is so cute, he will literally screw up his brow and put his little fist under his chin and think about whatever it is really hard. Can’t you just see him staring into the water and solving all of his world issues (how do I get my sister to leave my toys alone, etc.)?

Here is another reason I call him my, “little old man”, he is an utter and complete home body. He would be fine if we never ever left home again. As we were headed to the olive garden the other night for dinner, he states, “I do not eat at restaurants, I eat at home”. (perhaps, I should take some frugality tips from my son, huh?) I think I may have laughed the rest of the way to restaurant. I mean, who thinks of that? He is four years old for goodness sake.

With that being said, he does have a few other alternate personalities. For instance,

Robot Boy!

Crazy haircut boy!

Last but not least (mommies latest favorite), 20’s Swing boy! Every time I look at this picture, I think of big band music! He just looks likes he is swinging and snapping his fingers to the beat.
