|I can see those 3 Giraffe Dalias with some Defiance Coleus and ???
Last summer when I didn't get thrilled with 3 flats of coleus I realized that buying more was stupid.
I need to put a good 3 week push on getting this yard done.
I have a 4" thatch of sword ferns, dollar weed and even a runaway grass runner here and there. We had the hardest freeze since 1999 here in January. Makes it real easy to find the weeds. They are the only plants green.
I know I've gone through times when I had creative yearnings and nothing to work with.
Then there's being out of town working where fabric shopping was an easy past time and honestly my fabric will be the last to go. I have many quilts to make in my retirement.
At one time I relished taking almost anything and decoupage, paint, cover or reinvent it. My fire hasn't gone out but I've collected way too much stuff. When I get too much stuff I can't find what I have. It drives me crazy and I'm not going to grow old buying more of what I already own.
I sorted my tools and found 14 screwdrivers, 8 hammers, and 20 some pliers alone. I have been in heavy construction for over 30 years and these tools weren't pilfered, they were purchased.
At this writing I am searching for old tax records. I have important work box, a tax info box and a file. I also have a trash can with a shredder and another with out. I am getting rid of MUCH!!!
I might as well get this paperwork out of the way.
The difference between adventure and adversity is attitude. Be positive, be happy.
