I’m Raquel, mother of the marvelous Olivia (age 6) and the adorable Cooper (almost 2). As a SAHM to a kindergartener and a busy toddler (& wife to Tyson aka ‘Sarge’), I find myself with irons in many fires. Some of my time is also devoted to voluntary services for various non-profit organizations. The idea for this blog came from something I find myself thinking or saying rather often lately. I have so many interests & hobbies that I don’t consider myself ‘expert’ at any of them. It can be frustrating on occasion, but mostly I find it refreshing and rewarding to enjoy such variety. On this blog I share bits and hints about some of the hobbies this momma currently enjoys! When considering some of my favorite hobbies – i’ve discovered that a theme that threads through many of them is green. Not necessarily the color (that too) but ‘green practices’. I often find myself thinking, ‘how can I make this more environmentally friendly?’ and ‘what ingredients or products are better for my family and the beautiful planet where we live?’ I hope you will enjoy reading about some of my hobbies and be inspired to try something new!

  1. You go, girl – Hobbymamma! Is it really time to start planting seeds? Yikes! I guess I should start thinking about my garden! I think it went above 40F today and the sun peeked through a couple times. While driving, my daughter complained about the sunlight being so bright it was bothering her and she was feeling a little hot. LOL I said, well, I’ve been cold for 4 months, so Bring it on! :)-

    • Sonja, There are a few cool weather things you can plant outside early – some peas, beans & greens can tolerate frost and some even prefer the cooler weather. I’m always itching to get planting and take the first sunbreak and plant some seeds. I like to just start a few at a time to make the harvest longer- and if we have a random cold snap – it wont ruin all my chances! If we get some April snow (hope not though!) i’ll just cover with some newspapers 😀 Agreed! Bring on the warmth! p.s. thanks for your post!
