Missions and Wood boxes & Containers for Spring Wheat Grass

13 March 2019

Hello! We've had some exciting times as we've been anticipating my daughter's call to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. When young men and young women choose to serve, they meet with their church leaders, fill out all of the paperwork and medical/dental forms and wait. They could be sent to any one of 407 missions worldwide! Her call came via email yesterday morning just after 9 a.m. and it was torture to wait all day to open it with family. She could have clicked on the link and viewed the letter by herself but I was so proud that she waited! She is going to the Florida, Ft. Lauderdale Spanish speaking mission and will go to the missionary training center in Mexico City in June. She will serve for 18 months. We are so thrilled for her! It's so nice to have a place and a date to start preparations.

We woke up this morning to more snow (bleaaahhhh). We had a few days of spring-like weather (well for us, 50 degrees) and on Monday night I think every family in our neighborhood was out in their yards or out walking with sunset an hour later. I am buying up flower seeds and bulbs everywhere and am ready for warmth but feel like the snow just punched us in the gut. To be fair, it technically is still winter but this one has felt especially long.

I am planning to start growing wheat grass for spring/Easter -- Easter is on April 21 this year, so April 8 is my date. Of course you could begin now and just keep cutting it (or let it be wild) I *love* the smell of cutting it inside, it will make you crave summer though.

I've seen some super cute containers in stores that would be perfect for wheat grass for spring and Easter celebrations:

* Oblong wood tray  $7.19

* Woven Pot on Black Stand $15.59 (with 40% off coupon)

* this set of 2 wood trays $7.19!

* Metal Bucket Trio $20

* 24" Wood Box only $12

Have a wonderful day!
