Busy day. took the ox yoke to the Amish to see if they can restore it. did the usual post office, bank chores and actually got lost on the way back to town. I'm not used to all the back roads up in the hills around our area and made a wrong turn. Just keep driving and you'll end up somewhere. And we did...back to home base, picked up sister and left for the lily farm. found some beautiful plants, ate out, dropped off Honey and came home to work in the garden. I found a tiller that my dad had parked over in the side of the woods by the field and was able to cut the vines away from it and a neighbor will use his tractor to pull it on out. I'll paint it to stop the rust and put flowers around it as a focal point above the garden. I dug out more humus and took out another big piece of the rotting tree that we're working to pull out. I went to the old herb garden, dug up a wheelbarrow load of rock that I'd used as space dividers and built up another layer on the pseudo well. It's coming along nicely. I dug out some more of the next walk I'm putting in, dug up some iris to replant, and unloaded the new lilies. It's step by step. But...a neighbor has come to tour the space now and seems to like it even as it is.
I've worked on an afghan I'm wanting to finish and did just a little sparking. My delight is that I have not gained back any weight and in the course of working and eating more and more appropriately, I've lost another 4 pounds.
God is good. Be blessed and keep Sparkin'!!
