DAY TRIP

Gardening is about enjoying the smell of things growing in the soil, getting dirty without feeling guilty, and generally taking the time to soak up a little peace and serenity.  ~Lindley Karstens, noproblemgarden.com   THIS PRETTY MUCH DESCRIBES MY POINT OF VIEW ON GARDENING. I KNOW I HAVE FRIENDS ON LINE THAT FEEL THE SAME WAY.I MISSED WRITING YESTERDAY. THE SUN CAME OUT FOR THE FIRST TIME IN ALMOST 2 WEEKS SO I TOOK FULL ADVANTAGE OF IT BY SPENDING TIME IN MY GARDENS. OF COURSE NOT ALL THE DAY WAS SPENT THERE. IN THE EARLY A.M. I DUG OUT MY NEW SEWING MACHINE, READ THE DIRECTIONS, SET IT UP, AND SEWED A HEAD WRAP. I WAS MOST IMPRESSED WITH THE MACHINE AND THE JOB I DID. THEN I HAD TO DRIVE MY DAUGHTER TO WORK. NEXT A FEW ERRANDS. THEN SOME YARD WORK. IN THE AFTERNOON I HAD A NAIL APPOINTMENT AND BY THE TIME I GOT HOME IT WAS TIME TO MAKE SUPPER. HUBBY CLEANED UP FROM SUPPER WHILE I ZOOMED BACK TO MY GARDENS TO FINISH UP WEEDING AND THINNING THINGS OUT. THEN AT 7:00 WE HAD TO GO TO A SMALL BIRTHDAY PARTY. WE GOT HOME AROUND 8:30 AND I WAS BEAT SO I PREPARED FOR BED AND CAUGHT UP ON SOME OF MY TV SHOWS. A BUSY DAYS.TODAY MY GIRLFRIEND THAT I WENT TO ONTARIO WITH IS COMING WITH ME ON ONE OF OUR SUMMER DAY TRIP ADVENTURES. WE ARE GOING TO THIS FABULOUS NURSERY ( PLANTS) LOCATED IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE. THEY HAVE BEAUTIFUL PLANTS OF ALL SIZES, TYPES AND GOOD PRICES, ALSO VERY HEALTHY. THEY ALSO CARRY UNIQUE GARDEN ITEMS. I USUALLY SPEND A FAIR AMOUNT THERE BUT WE ARE LATER GOING THIS YEAR SO I DON'T NEED VERY MUCH. BUT I STILL LOVE TO LOOK. THEN WE ARE OFF TO THE MASSTOWN MARKET. WE WILL HAVE DINNER THERE. EVERYTHING IS HOMEMADE...YUMMY. THEY HAVE A LARGE BAKERY SO WE WILL BE BRINGING HOME SOME TREATS. THEY ALSO HAVE A PLANT SHOP AND GIFT STORE. REALLY NEAT STUFF! WE WILL LEAVE AT 9:00 AND GET HOME AROUND 3:00. JUST A NICE DAY. THEN I WILL STILL HAVE TIME TO WORK OUTSIDE BECAUSE THE SUN IS SHINING TWO DAYS IN A ROW. SHHHH... DON'T WANT TO JINX IT.WE ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF PLANNING OUR NEW GARAGE. MICHAEL HAS THE AREA ALL STAKED OFF, 24 BY 24. IT IS ON THE LOT NEXT TO THE HOUSE. THIS YEAR ( NOW TIL FALL) WE WILL HAVE THE CONCRETE PAD LAID AND THE STONE FOR THE DRIVEWAY PUT IN. EVENTUALLY THE DRIVE WILL BE PAVED BUT NOT FOR A FEW YEARS. THEN HE WILL EITHER BUY A GARAGE KIT FROM THE HARDWARE STORE OR BUY HIS OWN MATERIALS. WE WILL HAVE TO SEE WHICH WAY IS CHEAPER. HE WILL BUILD IT IN THE SPRING.WELL, I BEST GO AND GET DRESSED AS TIME IS CREEPING ON. EVERYONE HAVE A GREAT DAY. DEBBIE
