Rain Rain Go Away
Category: Setting Goals | Posted: Fri May 21, 2010 1:34 pm
It is raining and I am stuck inside away from the garden. But it kind of helps me get my house work done. I have a lot of cleaning to get done inside the house. However, I would rather be outside in the garden or working on my stone project. I want to have this all done by the time of my birthday which is a little less than a month away. Plus my friend is getting married a few days after my birthday. So I will be having a busy month of june and july. I want to be able to come home after all that and relax looking at my flowers and veggies.
I must say for having this be my first year with a veggie garden I see why people have them. They may be a lot of work but it is not stressful work. I believe this garden is my relaxing work and I truly enjoy it.

Spent most of my day behind a lawn mower or with a rake in my hand. It has been a busy day getting the grass cut and raked up so that it did not sit there and leave dead spots in the yard.
My garden is growing nicely except for some of the cucumbers. I went and bought more seeds for cucumbers incase these ones did not make it.
My stone project is underway. I have a lot more work to do ont it but I have started. However it is supposed to rain tomorrow and I will be in the house running the carpet cleaner.
The weather today was so nice I actually washed our bedding up and let it dry out in the nice breeze and sun light. I can not wait until I can always hang my clothes outside to dry. They also smell so fresh when they are dryed outside in the natural heat.
I am getting more and more excited as the days go by. Waiting for my other flowers to start to grown also waiting for my rose bush to bloom. It is teasing me right now I can tell it is close to opening up but it still has not opened all the way. It looks really pretty as it is now but I love seeing wide open roses they are so pretty. I have a bunch of buds on my rose bush which I am happy about because last year it only produced 3 roses all summer long. I blamed it on the girl that was living here that bought the bush. She would leave for a while it would bloom a rose when she would come back it would die and not produce another one until she left again. Now that she does not live here anymore it is full of buds. I am sure she would not be too happy about that one at all. Oh Well. It is making my flower bed look so pretty.
Well it is late here and I have to get an early start on cleaning the carpets and the rest of the bedding. Hope it does not rain all day long so I can enjoy being outside for a little bit at least. Have a good night. Enjoy dreams filled with flowers and butterflies!!! Good Night Garden Stew!!!!!!!!

The project of the day
Category: Setting Goals | Posted: Wed May 19, 2010 1:39 pm
Today I am setting a goal for myself. I am going to get all the rocks from around my shed and add them to my drive way. This way I am able to get my seeds planted there. And my drive way is running short on rocks but the landlord will not get any for it. So I am taking it into my own hands and fixing it myself. I wish I would not have to do this because it is going to be a back breaking process. However, I feel it is going to be worth the work. I also keep an old saying in my mind, NO PAIN NO GAIN! Therefore, in order to obtain the yard I want to have I need to work and feel the pain. Hopefully I am able to get it all done today. I also need to get my husband to get out of the house today and clean out the gutters. That will be another back breaking process LOL. Hope everyone enjoys their day and gets all the goals they want to get done today finished! Good Luck to all fellow gardeners!
