A Little Bit of Me (We) Time

“I have learned that the greater part of one’s misery or happiness
Is determined not by one’s circumstances but by one’s disposition.”
-Martha Washington-

The last few days I have been busy, working outside in my yard. Last weekend while in town we stopped by a couple local nurseries just to see what they may have and in both cases we fell upon the day when their new shipments had come in plus a nice sale was going on at the same time. Needless to say I took advantage of the situation and purchased the bulk of my intended plants for the season. In doing this I was faced with the task of getting them all in the ground at the same time. Usually I try and stretch them out a bit so that I will not be too overwhelmed. Plus the rains were to start by the later part of the week so I wanted even more to have them planted.

Yesterday I finished planting the last of them. Now this is a feat in itself really. In the past I have not been as quick to get all my purchased plants into the ground at such an efficient rate. Vincent has had a couple of surprise days off from work so today we are going to enjoy the remainder of the day with a nice ride on the Harley. It seems to be a nice reward for working so hard the first half of the week.

Tomorrow the rains begin and all the many tasks that I have to tend to inside will get some much needed attention. Yet for today, I think I am going to relax… and enjoy myself a little… Hope you take a few moments and do the same.

Oh - enjoy your ride! What a wonderful way to spend the day!

I'll bet the yard looks fabulous with all your new plants in!

Oh, how I envy all of you who are planting. I really miss my gardening.

I'm just slowly starting on my garden.. but then, we never get great sales, and even then, I could never accomplish what you just did!!
That's an amazing feat and glad truly enjoying the day instead of jumping into your next project. You've earned your break and some relaxation! :)

Tonight, my goal is to save a lilac bush from neighbors who are ripping them out to put up a privacy fence. I'm having distant friends send energies and close friends come with shovels. We're going to save as much as we can!!

I am so tickled that you got all of your plants in the ground! Not to mention you got them on sale too. The most wonderful part though, is Vincent was able to be with you. I never thought at this time in my life that George and I would be living in different places. So glad that you were able to have a few extra surprise days with him.

Hope you enjoyed your day...

I agree with this wuote, and I always try to remember something like that!

Kisses from us.
