May 4 - Fun

Playing in the dirt is fun for all ages!. I potted
208 petunias in three hours this afternoon, after I
watered trees and shrubs for a couple hours.
Have I ever mentioned how much I love my job?

Cool. Now I feel extra lazy for not getting out in my "garden" - a.k.a. the 3 strips around the edge of my patio - to pull up my giant weeds and get ready to plant...maybe tomorrow ... but likely next week.

Walked out to check on things today and my strawberry plant seems to be thriving - there was one decent sized strawberry there, but it had several small bites out of it and a small worm crawling on it, so I guess I shouldn't count on a crop again this year!

Plus, it creeps me out that something is out there eating things - I assume it was a squirrel, as it wasn't pecked at as I would expect from a bird, but rather literally had bites missing.

It's great that you love your job so much! I aspire to get a job I can be even half as enthusiastic about - when I eventually look for a job that is!

Update on the water: the circuit breaker tripped, either due to a power surge when the electricity came back on last night OR when lightning struck in the area. My neighbor's electric fence control box got hit in the same area. He was able to reset the circuit breaker for us and we have WATER! I think I'll go do a load of laundry. Heh.

And the winner is …

Kitten with a Whiplash, who left two comments and it was the second (which had nothing to do with the contest) which won the prize. Congratulations, and since the Kitten was the only commenter who expressed any interest in actually winning it, I'm so glad the Universe took care of it. Heh.

What a weekend! But first, how was yours? I hope you did some fun stuff and got some necessary stuff done, as well. It's all about balance.

Saturday was our fun day (but we had to drive, drive, drive to get there and then drive, drive, drive home again, all in one day, boy was I tired). We went to my husband's granddaughter's first birthday party. In addition to a sweet little doll, suitable for ages 0+ (meaning it has no parts that will come loose, and do you know how difficult it is to find dolls for babies when you live in the Middle of Nowhere?), I made her this:

I haven't sewn anything in a month of Sundays, so was a little apprehensive about finishing it on time, but this p…


Well. Well, well, well. Should this morning's scale number be divided between two weeks, or did all of it happen this past week? It's an easy number to divide, and I've been consistent for two weeks, so it should probably be split, doncha think?

That means I lost three pounds for each of the last two weeks. SIX pounds total. Excuse me, I mean
SIX!!!!!! I'm going to do everything I can to stay on track while I'm gone this week. There's little more I can promise. I'm really motivated to keep it up. The dumbbells are packed (and my luggage weighs a ton!), I'm taking a thermos of water in the car and I know where are the rest stops are between here and Nashville. I think I'll walk a bit at each of them, then walk again when I arrive at my destination. Hope to get a total of 80 minutes done by the end of the day. SIX!!!!!!
