Wendy woke me up no less than 6 times between 1 and 4 last night. We had the windows open and fans going and air conditioner, since it was 96 degrees yesterday. The AC just doesn’t work that well upstairs. We have a window unit all ready to install. So, I think her discomfort had to do with allergens creeping through the windows. She must be taking after Zach and I with our allergies. This morning, we slept in til 8:30. Wendy didn’t wake up until about 9:30. I walked into her room to this:

Garden. I don’t have a picture of that right now, but everything has sprouted except the strawberries and peppers. I’m a little worried about the peppers, and if they don’t start in the next week, I think I may just go get some seedlings. I’m not expecting much out of the strawberries right now. So, I’ve little sprouts of marigolds, nasturtiums, cucumbers, onions, carrots, and peas. I have plants of red and green lettuce, broccoli, and tomatoes. I’d really like to try growing some yellow tomatoes if I can find some seedlings. I wonder if the local nursery has them or, since it’s an heirloom plant, if I have to get it from someone’s garden. I know Rose and Paul have grown them…
There was something else I was going to write about, but I’ve forgotten. Maybe later. Oh yeah…does anyone know when and how much benadryl I can give a 6 month old baby (for allergies…not sleep!)?
