I will sleep well tonight

Friday, April 18, 2014

I spent most of the day outside. Wind was cold, sun was warm and I was delighted to be able to be out.
I did one small load of laundry which I hung out.
Then spray painted 3 metal outdoor chairs and one small out door table.
Next I transplanted 12 pansy plants. Then put a second coat of spray paint on the metal swing frame.
Moved bundles (Packs .) of floor tiles in the garage so they are out of the way.
Took out some ceramic garden decorations an put them around the garden area.
Yes I took some sit down and enjoy the sun brakes. I saw a pair of blue birds.
I hope those nasty meal worms convince them to nest in one of the boxes I have set up.
I will maybe get some paperwork sorted or filed tonight. Or maybe not.

Today gardening

Thursday, April 17, 2014

Today I clipped back and composted old growth from the raised beds and in the garden area. Not quite done but it looks so much better. I like to let many of my plants go dormant and then that years leaves will help mulch the roots during the winter. Next some planting and put out iron to discourage snails and maybe make some containers to grow potatoes.
Also painted some more of the lawn furniture.
Today was sunny windy and in the 50's.

    I didn't know that iron discouraged snails...good to know. Do you have any tips to stop trees from growing? I have trees growing between mine and my neighbor's fences and I'd really like to cut them down once and for all. Any help on that would be appreciated.

    Spring is coming your way, believe me!!!

I do hope and pray that your plants will be okay! Maybe, it's coming up on the season, where everything old is new again. I'll accept that anytime, as it includes me too! I'm new each and every day that I open my eyes and thank the LOLD, for a day He never promised me!

Be blessed,

Been a long day

Wednesday, April 16, 2014

Went to the dermatologist and had 2 spots removed from my face. Started shopping and getting information from different stores for dishwasher and lawnmower. Not much beyond a load of laundry accomplished at home. So ready for bed.

    I pray that everything with the dermatologist is okay. You did a lot of running around, so you deserve the rest, so do just that, and I'll check with you later!

Be blessed,

    Everybody's weather is so crazy. Here, this AM it was 25 and windy, but by 1 PM it was 75 and sun shinning bright! People are getting so sick from this weather. You stay in and keep warm, so you don't become a statistic!

Be blessed,

Painting

Monday, April 14, 2014

Beautiful day weather wise today. emoticon Warm and sunny. Also very windy.
Did errands in town then came home and painted some of our outdoor furniture. It is metal and had some areas that were starting to rust. I will need to get more paint tomorrow. I also weeded and did some gardening. Probably no where near the calorie burn that I get at the fitness center, but a lot more fun.
Late afternoon we had a front start through. emoticon Temp. down, rain and snow in the forecast for tomorrow.

    Yes, we're having the rain, which started today, and will go through tomorrow. At least we don't have snow!

I know you did have a heck of a lot more fun outside in the sun and doing manual labor, where you'll see the fruits of your labor, through Mother Nature! Stay WARM!!!

Be blessed,
