Friday Favorites: Hammock Time

Welcome to Friday favorites: a weekly linky for your favorite blog posts from the week co-hosted by Maya of Musings of a Marfan Mom and me!

Visit either here at Anktangle or over at Musings of a Marfan Mom every week on Friday to link up your favorite post from the week, and Maya and I will read and comment on them. Don't forget to share the love by reading and commenting on a few of the other favorites in the list after you link up yours!

In addition to the linky, I'm taking this opportunity each week to write a little bit about a my favorite moments from the past week. I hope you'll feel inspired to leave a comment telling me about your favorite thing(s) that happened this week, too!

These are a few of my favorite things:

Last weekend, my dad was in town visiting us for a couple of days. It was very (unseasonably) warm and sunny out, and we ended up being able to make a lot of progress on the vegetable garden. My dad built a trellis for the squash (I'm going to try to get most of my squash to grow vertically this year) and I got almost all of my vegetables in the ground. I still have one 4' x 5' section to finish planting (as well as herbs, flowers, and ground cover to work on in the rest of the yard and around the house) but I was amazed at the volume of work we accomplished in just one weekend.

Thanks again for all your help, Dad!

Along with the extensive gardening, we enjoyed being outside in the sunshine. Daniel ran around the yard in his swimsuit for a while one day, and we all got a good dose of Vitamin D. We filled his kiddie pool up (which we got from our closest neighbors, whose kids are too old for it now) for the first time, which was fun. Daniel stepped in and out of it a few times, but the water was too cold for him to get any good time in. I'm sure we'll have plenty of warm days to try again in the future!

Probably my most favorite part of the weekend was that we hung up our hammock for the first time this year. I just love relaxing in the hammock, enjoying being outside but not necessarily doing anything except observing, taking it all in. I've gotten a few opportunities to utilize the hammock this week, and it's felt so good. In fact, most of this post was written while listening to music and sitting out in the hammock! Daniel is enjoying playing with it, too, which is double fun (and double cuddly).

And one final favorite moment from the week: Daniel was hiding in his cabinet one evening after dinner (I know that might sound strange, but there is a cabinet in our kitchen that Daniel has claimed as his own sort of cave; he loves to hide in it and play games on his phone or listen to music). When it was time to start gearing down for bed, I opened the cabinet door and handed him a chewable melatonin (he gets one an hour before bed every night). Daniel took it, thanked me, and put it in his mouth to chew, but then he stopped for a second and said to me knowingly, "Momma. You should've knocked-ed first."
Good point there, kiddo. Thank you for the reminder!
