Tuesday, Trying....

     When you just don't  want to do anything a cute pair of muck boots will inspire you.  I spent about 4 hours out in the sort of cloudy, windy, tried to be sunny day.  I was trying to be productive so I forgave the weather. 

     It felt good, and as I messed around just the lower part of the backyard I realized just how much work there is to do out there.  I don't know if that was a good thing for me right now.

     So much clean up, at least a truck load but we don't know if the landfill is open. I did get all the potting soil changed over in all of the flower boxes, except the 5 out front. Not an easy task as I think there are 25 in the back.  I also weeded the blueberry patch in the back and two flower beds.  Then my lovely neighbor decided to dig up all the bulbs around her pond over 70 of them and asked if I wanted them?  Of course I could not stand to see a plant die so I planted them all over the back yard beds.  I doubt any of them recover this year but next year someone will be pleasantly surprised.

There is still plenty to do back there, but is is cold today so I don't know if I will go out.  Maybe?

It is also my birthday today!  So happy birthday to Sissie, you are still older than me by 7 minutes.
I woke up to a flower deliver from one of the girls.  My eldest sent me a new suit from Talbots, with a message, "purchased with the proceeds of a higher education." Daughter #3 was home this weekend and we went to get some oyster shell for the chickens at a feed store, where we found some the same boots that Hubs wears, that are over $150.00 a pair.  They were the women's version and my size for 80% off.  So daughter bought those for me as my old ones are getting pretty bad, and then also bought me a 50.00 gift card to the nursery so I feel pretty spoiled, by my kids.  Hubs will help me get something for the yard when we can.

While we were searching of oyster shell which by the way is sold out everywhere, we finally found some at a smaller feed store.  They had to search for it and they had 4 small bags.  I was going to buy all 4 even though I only needed 1.  Then I thought to myself, "NO that is hoarding."  So I left with what I needed.  Trying to stay out of places we went to Walmart during the older fart hours and found beautiful cases of Honey crisp apple for .59 a pound and cases of granny smith for .23 a pound so we bought a case of each and are freezing them.  Great for apple pies later.  Apple is Hubs favorite.  I just could not let those prices slip by. I should end up with 10 bags of apples two pies each.  I can give some to my kids.

Did I sew yesterday?  NO!  Will I today?  Maybe.... I do have to mail a coat back to a client who lives out of town. I am also stiff and sore from the yard work yesterday, but it feels good to be sore for a reason.  My back is getting better.

It is only 50 degrees today, wish it were warmer....  What are you going to get done today?

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negatvie.

  7. Happy birthday Kim! (You share a birthday with my mom!) Today my big goal was to get the kids' school work done since we are doing school at home since our schools are shut down until at least April 6. Thankfully the kids' teachers are awesome about giving us a list of things needing to be done and websites to use, etc.

    1. Yes it is proving a challenge here. But really? I think we are all a bit spoiled. I know I am.

  10. Happy Birthday! I am an identical twin, too, but I am older than my sister by an hour and twenty minutes. It was a traumatic birth for my sister, and she and mom almost didn't make it.

  11. Happy Birthday! After days of gloom and 40-degree temperatures it's supposed to get into the 50s today. The sun may even come out, which will go a far way towards making me feel better.
