Working in Organic Garden

I have been extremely busy working in the garden its been hard finding time to create. I have to make sure the seedling get enough water till they get about 2 inches tall.

The weeds are really starting to take off. This means more and more out in the garden. Once we get into July I will be able to take a nice break and just let it do what it does, produce.

I hope everyone is having a good summer. We have had a strange one so far. It's hard to believe it's June and we've dropped in to the 40's it seems a few days are in the 70's or 80's and then suddenly it's freezing. Don't know what to wear unless I go outside. This has made for a strange crop so far.

When I was out in the garden today a robin decided to fly by and take a seat on one of my tomato cages. He was so proud sitting there with his chest out head held high and so beautiful. Boy, did he squawk at me. I often wonder if they tell each other here she comes she's going to water again. Great for worms. He was a gorgeous site.

I also wanted to update you on our eagles nest I posted awhile back. Sadly again this year the wind knocked the nest out the tree killing both baby eagles. Same thing happened last year. If it's the same parents I do hope they get it right next year and decide it's not a good place for a nest.

Until my next post have a wonderful day!

M&M Withdrawls!!

It's been awhile since I posted it just doesn't make much sense to have a blog if you don't write. So, I am back...Hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Weekend with there extra day off!

I am currently having an M&M withdrawal arrggg! I am actually trying to become heart healthy. My daughter says it time to start thinking about heart disease, which runs in our family. My mother passed of multiple conditions and heart disease was part of the combination. Plus, my daughter works at the Hospital so now you know. Not to mention the fact that after one of my mother's artery surgeries, the doctor proceeded to show us what he took out of her neck. This is how he put it..." this is what fast food and junk food does" it was as thick, as long as a little finger and looked just like fat. YUK!
Needless to say I can still see it like it was yesterday. Even my Mother, I miss her.

I hate exercising, but I do walk 30 minutes 4 times a week I really don't like it either ....Actually once I get there I am fine....I also am eating carrots, carrots, carrots, am I a rabbit yet? Who would have ever thought I would begin eating like that furry little friend. I WANT my M&M's OMG...HELP! You have no idea how many times I have tried to stop eating those cute little guys. I ate them when I created, watched television, I don't watch television that much it was just grabbing one at a time as I created...actually one after the other LOL.

I am giving it the good old try and feel I ready now. It feels different this time. I get it why I am doing it. It's just hard when chocolate taste so good! I am not a big junk food person. I don't eat at fast food places. Just M&M's and some chips occasionally. My two bad habits wow how dull, actually not!

So, I have been so busy creating tending to the garden and NOT eating M&M's. The weeds thing well, they are part of the garden now and are beginning to take over. Time for weeding has come. Gosh how time flies! I feel like I no sooner get up and I am back in bed again.

Till next time have a wonderful day and remember when you need to de-stress, just think of something that makes you go AW......
