I know, it’s been a million years since my last post. I’ve been busy, and unwell, and rather uninteresting. But the ladies at my church have decided to provide low cost greeting cards to our members, and they asked if I would mind painting some to add to the collection. I can only hang so [...]
A Coat of Monchromatic Colors
Most people called their moms for Mother’s Day. My mom lives with me, so after church, we gave her the card and tool set we bought her. Then I proceeded to tear apart my dining room. Turned the table and laid out all the china! What I want to know is how in the world [...]
Temperature Blanket April Update!
Okay, I’m a week late. I really fell off the wagon in April and had to scramble to make about 25 squares. Oops. 29 April squares and four May squares Then once I had them made, I sat on them for a few more days before I finally pieced them together. Hmm. It’s not like [...]
Saturday Garden Update – May 8, 2021
I think I’m finally done building my Spring garden. This week we added five peppers, two melons, two hibiscus, and a half dozen herbs. Oh. My chard never came up, or I didn’t plant it and thought I did, so I do need to reseed that. So I guess I’m not completely done. We do [...]
Short and Sweet
It’s time for a temperature blanket update, but I’m a few days behind. Luna is helping me get caught up! Enjoying the weather while we can!
Saturday Garden Update – May 1, 2021
It’s May Day! I have memories of celebrating May Day as a kid, winding ribbons around a May pole, but I honestly don’t remember why. Relics of an era past, something my elementary school teachers wanted us to learn but wasn’t important in our current era, so I’ve pushed the information out of my brain. [...]
Saturday Garden Update
It’s that time of year that I really need to be documenting my garden regularly. It changes all the time! So I wanted to make sure to note some significant events that are going on this week. First, the tomatoes! The Bellstar tomatoes in bed 2 are looking fabulous. They’re starting to put out flowers, [...]
I Won’t Be Able to Move Tomorrow
In case you wanted to know what 100 bags of mulch looks like, it looks like this: We had it delivered. Last year I had five cubic yards of mulch dropped in my driveway, but that involved a lot of shoveling and wheelbarrow maneuvering. This year I opted for bags, even though it was more [...]
Front Yard Growth
I just realized I haven’t written any gardening posts for a month, and so much has changed already! Now that the temperatures have stabilized (mostly... where did this cold front come from??), we know what has survived and what didn’t. We pulled some things out, and added a lot of new things, and moved some [...]
2021 Temperature Blanket – March is Done!
March was busy with gardening and more gardening! It is definitely bluebonnet season now. For a while I thought my yard was going to be the only place in the area with the state flower, but I’m starting to see more and more of them in yards and fields. I’m not sure why mine were [...]
