This Morning in The Garden
I was walking around the garden this morning, a very tired
garden. I need to remember that even though I love gardening,
I love planting seeds, I love it all but by this time is August, I
am just tired of the heat, the dirt, and I am ready to move on
I thought I would show you a picture of my garden. Now that the
weeds are taller than the plants I originally planted.
Then I went to the top of the garden and this is
the top part of it.
This hasn't been the best year for gardening. We haven't had the
heat as in years past. The weeds have had a banner year.
Once school starts gardening becomes the one more thing
that just gets over looked.
When I send my kids off to school they are eighteen. It still never gets
any easier for me. I admit, when Elliot went out the door, I was crying
into the washing machine. I lifted the lid so the sound of the water would
keep the sound so no one would hear it.
He looked so happy, I just had to show you a picture.
My kids are all well adjusted, it is the Mom who has
the problems. I am so happy when he comes in from
school and he is so happy, and he loves his classes.
You should have seen me with the oldest two were getting
married. Having the two weddings here 3 weeks apart, Megan
wanted red and white flowers in the front yard, and Kessie
wanted pink, white and green in the back yard. I planted
so many flowers. it was a good think as I spent so much time
crying in the flowerbeds.
Life moves on I took a picture of the house in the morning light.
I thought I might share it this morning. It is part of the dream
I never dreamed.
Peter told me he wants to get a after school job.
I don't know if I am ready to learn how to use the weed
eater, the edger and the lawn mower. I know I could,
but lets say, It seems a bit daunting.
This is how my Thursday looks, I am praying for all of you
in the path of Irene. Not to mention those of you that have
had your second earthquake.
Have a wonderful day,
