AUGH!!! Lost a night in the garden!
HALLELUJAH!!!! A neighbor brought me 5 stands to put poles through in order to show quilts for my quilt shows!!! I am SO BLESSED!!! His wife has been to almost all of my programs and has been such a huge supporter. Now this!!! He built me 5 stable poles that have holes drilled through them for rods to be placed. The rods fit pole to pole and I can hang quilts over the rods for display. When I get the barn built I can use them for room dividers. I'm just excited to see what the Lord sends next. Today, my boss was in our clinic and threw away the roll mats that fit under desks to keep rolling chairs from marking the floors. She said they weren't clinic-worthy. I'm taking them home. I have garden chairs/benches and will lay them down, put gravel over them and then put the chairs on top of the gravel and stake them down...No grass/weeds will grow and
The plants are almost all marked and I have the majority of the info cards typed out. I'm connecting with other gardeners and trading plants. Never thought that I would ever be into this so strong. When the man came with the stands tonight he walked around the garden and bragged on the walks ...not knowing that I had laid them. Made me feel like I had done something right. I showed him the wheel that sister had brought up there the other night and it turns out that it's an antigue wheelbarrow wheel. I have locust poles and barn wood and will build a frame to resemble a barrow. It'll be fun to set pots in. Maybe the Lord just wants me to slow down for a few days. But it will be okay.
Be blessed all and keep Sparkin'!!

Day is done. Work was slow with 3 nurses in the clinic. I was done on time and got a little shopping done before coming home. I was able to get a little flower cart painted and start the cap layer on the well. I dug out more rock and dirt from the old herb garden, did a little weeding, and worked on labeling the plants. If I get up early enough in the morning I ought to be able to get the tags out on the rest of them. I'm making a garden book with pictures so that I can see the changes over the next few years. Sister is getting more involved by giving suggestions and watching for things that will bring interest to the area.
The weather change is really causing a lot of joint pain to people in the area. Tylenol is a good thing.
Be blessed all and just keep Sparkin'!

Spent about 5-6 hours in the garden today. It was great in the morning, cool and breezy...but the afternoon brought heavy humid heat and I gave up after about 2 hours. The pseudo well is ready for the capstones to go around the edge now. I have the old herb garden about dismantled and cleaned out. The new walk is dug, the gravel laid, and the initial layer of sand is down. I was able to get the log pieces up to the burn pile with a lot of other brush that will be in the next fire. I started a new garden section to accommodate the mass quantities of lilies that I have had to set out and love how it already looks. I still have a day or two worth of transplanting and new plantings to get down before Fall. Sister came up to see what I was doing and even though I walked her step by step on the layout of the garden, she just doesn't see what I see when she looks at the area. Doesn't matter. She's been out in the barn and found several really fun pieces of farm equipment to set out on display...more cleaning and painting, but nice eye catchers. The neighbor has agreed to pull out the old till and we'll aim for next Sat to get that done. I should have the next 5 nights to work on the place and that might get me to the last weeding before laying the leaf mulch for the winter. Next summer I want to add a fire pit or fire place and a water feature. Looking for little bird houses to set out for Spring. I have a big school house bell on a post to move from an isolated spot down into the garden. the wind chimes have been tinkling all morning and with the bird calls it has really been pleasant to be out there.
Went to DD's church for the annual fellowship tonight and really enjoyed being with her extended family. Lots of people noticed my weight loss and it was so encouraging. So..back to the Sunday routine in the morning and so glad to be alive.
Be blessed all and be a blessing!

    It is so nice to finish goals, but the best is when others notice all the effort! Congrats on the notice of weight loss!

Had a lot of running to do this morning but was in the yard for 6 hours. Got a felled tree moved, part of a log, dug rock out of the old herb garden and used it to build up the pseudo well, then put more dirt into it for a brace. Dug out more of the new walk and got a load of gravel down before dark. Got a bit of trimming done too as well as a load of tree limbs cut out. the closest neighbor took care of the burn pile today and another neighbor brought us fresh veggies. What a blessing! I was raking the field clumps when he and his wife came over on their golf cart ( the main transportation for our area). I was able to pick up several limbs that had fallen in recent winds and carried the clippings to the fill sight. I have a dozen things to do tomorrow and then will go to a social event at DD's church. Live full and loud and never stop! Just keep Sparkin'!!

  That sounds like a lot of work. We had a few trees down also.
