I should be ashamed

What a slacker…I completely forgot about the blog today.  Well, that’s not true.  I’ve remembered upwards of three times that I needed to do it but then would get distracted and busy with work.  Truth is, I don’t have much to say right now and desperately need to get back to work – but I thought I should at least drop in a quick line to keep you entertained.  How am I doing so far?

Tuesdays I don’t have to be at work until 12pm, which is really awesome because I get the whole morning to do what I want…which is typically sleep.  This year though, I’ve decided that if nothing else, Tuesday mornings will be me in the garden.  Yesterday morning was spent figuring out the best way to water the whole backyard, pruning my raspberry bushes and picking up trash.

Can’t wait for the raspberries to come in!

There is still a lot to be done and plant, but clean-up is the first stage and I feel like I’ve got a good handle on it.  I’m also utilizing all of our veggie and other biodegradable scraps to start a compost pile…SO excited for this.  Hopefully the neighbors won’t die from the smell when it starts baking in the sun.  I’m just resting on the idea that they will be overjoyed by the smell of other things; the plants and flowers that the compost will feed.  The plan is to build a wooden compost bin in the backyard this week or next but for now, it’s a red bucket.

Friday I will be posting about a new project I’m going to be working on, which will be fun…aren’t you excited for a real post from me this week?! :)

Much love!
