My Projects This Week
I have griped and complained all this week about the time change.
I just don't like getting up at o'dark thirty.
Then today I was happy as I was outside messing around at 7:00 pm and
I remembered that is how I get my flowerbeds cleaned and all of the stuff
I never seem to get done in the winter.
While my husband was working on the lawn mower this weekend. I puttered
around. I just like hanging around him when he is working. I try not to give him too many
helpful hints but I do like to sit on the lawnmower seat and make him laugh when
he is trying to get a very tight bolt loose. I help him if he needs a extra pair
of hands but then I get side tracked. He has a old horse trough that he has
filled with mulch that he bought for his trees, we buy it by the truck load and
this was all that was left from the fall. I stood looking at it and decided
I would try my hand at a worm bed again. So I filled it up with mulch
and got it moist and went in and got my old coffee grinds and dug around
in the trash, trying to remember what worms like to eat.
Today I went to Wal Mart and bought 8 boxes of red-worms.
I am hoping they do real good then next time I want to go fishing
I can take my own worms who have been eating coffee grinds,
so they will be real lively, and then the fish will really bite.
That is the plan anyway.
While we were also at Wal Mart, I made the mistake
of going into the garden department. Their seeds are only
1.00 a packet well, corn is a dollar and fifty cents.
I kinda went crazy. I spent Saturday as I was taking a break
from helping my husband fix the lawnmower, I went through
all of the seeds I had and all I had saved. Which wasn't very much
because of those creepy stink bugs that killed my garden last year.
I am not going to be organic this year. Now I said it. I have my
pest control lady all set to put out bug poison this year. This year
it is war. So no more Mrs. Nice. She said she has
some stuff that she can put out and it won't bother anything else
except those stink bugs.
I am kind of excited to be holding a hula hoe and a rake and getting
my flowerbeds whipped into shape this week.
I hope your week is filled with sunshine and spring weather.
