Well, it has certainly been a while! I get so busy that I forget about this blog.
Sometimes I get depressed, too, and just don’t feel like doing anything. If I make myself go for a walk I usually feel better but it’s very hard to do sometimes.
We’ve had some beautiful weather lately. I’ve been getting things done in the yard. The greenhouse is put together and just needs staking. I hope we can get that done soon as my seedlings really need a new home before going into the garden!

Friday

I got a lot done this week.
On Tuesday I cleaned the house. Not much fun in that but it needed to be done!
I had Isaac over Tuesday night and thru Wednesday. We played Play Doh, danced and went outside during a dry spell-it was a rainy day. He helped me put the house numbers on the house.
Yesterday I cut down more of the laurel hedges. They are about half done now. I also tasked up the debris that was under then LOTS of already composted leaves for the garden!
I started building my raised rows with them.

Monday Morning

I had a fairly decent weekend. Patrick took Bud and me to lunch for our birthdays-mine is the 8th and his is the 10th.
Stars we stopped at the Restore and I bought some flower seeds and paint for the bathroom. The paint is a pale teal-like color. It was left over from someone’s project so it was cheap and pretty! I got almost a full gallon for $12.
The we stopped at the casino-I HATE the casino but Bud wanted to go and since he was driving…
Once at home we watched Mockingjay, Part 1.
On Sunday I went to church then we went to Ave Hardware. Bought a take and shovel and also some roofing patch for our tiny leak over the mudroom.
Patrick got the dead moss off of the front garage roof and sprayed the rest again.
I got the new house numbers painted and sealed and just need another quick coat of the sealer on the back and then I can put them on the house.
I’m going to get the crap cleared from my garden area today and possibly cut down more of this darned hedges! One good thing, though-there’s lots of already composted leaves hidden under the hedges so I won’t need to buy any while I wait for my compost to ‘cook’.

Gardening Prep

I got outside and started feeling better so I moved the logs that were left when the old shed was taken down. Patrick helped with the large ones when he got home from work.
We ended up cutting the two longest ones because they wouldn’t fit through the entrance of the wood shed.
The two square beams were left in the garden area to outline it.
Tomorrow I’ll start cleaning out the area. There’s a lot of trash and weeds there.
I hope to cut down some more of the laurel bushes, too.

Sunday

I’m still not feeling well. Some kind of a cold, I guess. I just have no energy right now.
I was still going to get the last of the grocery shopping done but I guess it’ll have to wait till Patrick gets back.
Time for a hot cup of tea.
