Well, that is my workout for the day!

Ahhhh gardening.  I love having pretty gardens, but hate actually gardening.  Well maybe hate is too strong of a word, gardening is just not really my thing.  My mother on the other hand LOVES gardening, and comes and plants all my flowers every year and then I struggle to keep them alive for the rest of the summer.

Well this year is going to be different!  I am really going to give it my best shot to to have beautiful gardens all summer long.  This will be our third summer in our house and every year I start out with the best intentions, but by the end of the summer the weeds have taken over and the plants are dead.  But not this year, yesterday I weeded both the front and back lawn (something I actually enjoy doing, strange I know) and gathered up all of the leaves that we missed in the fall.  Today I edged the front garden and ripped out everything except the bushes (hope I didn’t take out anything I was not supposed to).  But how do you tell the different between a weed and a flower when they are little anyways?!?  I even used “The Claw” to turn over the soil, it was a great workout I think I am pretty much done for the day and the front garden is ready to go.  Maybe if it is nice again tomorrow I will tackle the back gardens, that is if I am not too sore from the work I did today (I really need to get back into working out!).  How are your gardens doing?

Loving the sun!

Ohhh what a great day to be home… the sun is shining, a warm breeze is blowing.  A perfect day for doing laundry and hanging it outside to dry, which is exactly what I did.  My husband has an aversion to fabric softeners so I throw in 1/4 cup of white vinegar in the softener dispenser instead, and have wonderfully fresh and clean laundry.

This is the type of day where it is VERY hard to study and stay focused, because there are so many things that I would rather be doing outside (I think I can actually hear my neglected garden calling to me!).  I just need to get through these next three days (and three exams), and then I can get back to the things that I love doing.
