I have been busy the last few days . . .

Thanks to the springtime weather in March. Can you believe I’m wearing shorts in March? Amazing. I know, I know what a scintillating blog, she’s talking about the weather. I apologize but I love spring and it inspires me to get outside and plant and mow and exercise. I do have a wedding coming up in September that I am in no way ready for. In fact, I have gained weight since I bought my dress NOT lost weight. Thank goodness for spring and summer coming. I can get my sweat on so much better then.

So, what has kept me busy, you ask? Well, I mowed our nearly one acre yard with a non-propelled mower. It took nearly three hours and I was so worn out by the end of the night I could barely move. Talk about good exercise. It was exhausting but rewarding once completed.

Yesterday I traversed my four mile walk and burned up some calories plus started to work on my summertime tan. Which basically consists of a sunscreen farmers tan. I’m no teenager anymore. God made me white, why fight it? Following that, my plan was to put up my hammock and kick back for a bit but upon setting the beast up I realized I was missing a part and therefore needed to run the Lowe’s, where I found fresh herbs and flowers to buy and had to have them. I bought and planted basil, lavender, spinach, poesy’s and snapdragons, all my favorites.

Snapdragons from my previous garden.

I also bought some zinnia’s seeds to plant but I’m not sure where I’ll put them yet. I’d like them in front but that means I have to talk D into that and he’s so finicky about stuff . . . We shall see.

Today I fertilized my lawn again, I’m trying to kill the damn onions growing rampantly throughout our entire lawn. The little buggers are a pain and really stink up the place when you mow. I’m told it’s nearly impossible to get rid of them unless you dig them up and let me tell you … I would have to just dig up the entire lawn to do that and D say’s absolutely not. So … I’ll do what I can and we’ll see what happens.

I did manage to get the hammock up and it’s a beautiful morning, I should be out there now enjoying the beautiful weather before the rain sets in. Here is the view from my hammock. It’s so much nicer than my previous back yard.
