Not one, not two, but four adventures in one blog post!? Well, this is ground breaking! You’re just going to have to read more and enjoy.
Adventure #1- The Garden
This is my on-going adventure, and lately adventure is an understatement.

I have about two sugar pumpkins, a squash, and a cantaloupe left of six jack-o-lanterns, three sugar-pumpkins, three squash, three watermelon, and three cantaloupe. I have enough seeds, and enough time to re-plant, but right now its a mess. And because of the weather, all the seedlings I have inside perished from lack of sunlight. All there is left to do is persevere and try again! (And I have to tell my mom to stop buying new seeds, because I have no place to put them yet o.o)

But before I could open the dishwasher to clean up the disaster looming over my kitchen counter, my mom says,
“We’re having shepherd’s pie tonight, and I need you to make it,”
In my head I’m screaming my head off. Outside, my sleepy and groggy body manages to let out a “what?”
“Can you cook tonight?” she asks. I look back at the dishes, and back to her and shrug. (More …)
