It never ceases to amaze me how weeds grow every season in the most difficult of situations: concrete and a very small slit with a teensy spot of soil and BAM! a weed begins to grow. If I'm not on that weed soon, it takes off in growth and the stalk becomes so thick and the roots so deep that all I can do is chop it down, but then the roots are still there. So yesterday, I used a shovel to chop down countless milk weeds and other various plants that do not belong around our pool area and around our property. Two hours later, our place looked much better.
I had to show you all that I chopped down/dug up and add 2 more trash bags that didn't make it to the photo as well.
Now the perimeter of our pool zone is all set, and soon the cover is coming off!
In addition to my hard work yesterday, I spent 40 minutes today covering those "weed free" places with spray to keep the weeds from growing up again.
As I write this blog post, I cannot help but notice the correlation between the out-of-control weeds and my old out-of-control eating habits. It really feels victorious seeing those nasty weeds pulled out and dumped into our fire pit!
Maintaining with the Weed spray was so much easier today than the weed removal yesterday. So, what's the Spark parable in all this? I know you see it! Please write me back with your Spark parable or wise quote or some other comment for this post.
