Deep Thoughts By Lara

So, do you think Someone was trying to tell me something when I went for my morning run?

I prefer to think of it as "push on, though your obstacles may be many." I certainly can't go through 'em, but I can go underneath them, and around them, and keep going forward. One way or another, I'll get there.

And thus ends my deep thought for the day. *snort*

Yesterday was hard. First day on the new diet. At one point I think I would have salted and eaten my own foot, I was THAT hungry. And all the food was super gross. But I'm pressing forward. I'm doing this.

I have some major weeding to do today. The biggest bed in the front yard has suddenly grown green weeds like a Chia Pet. I'm going to get a wheelbarrow, lift all the pine mulch up, rake and pull weeds and spray Roundup (avoiding the Daylilies that are now coming up) and put the mulch back down. It will take a few hours, but it needs to be done. The yards are immaculate in this neighborhood. Weeds are SATAN.

I'd better take a Claritin first! Happy Wednesday, everyone!

I'm trying to figure out the whole compost-fertilize-mulch cycle. As soon as it dries up enough, I need to clean up around the bushes and trees and get started.

I've been advised not to do any inground planting until Memorial Day, so I'm sorting seeds and seeing what i need to start when inside.

I love the spring look to you blog. We had our shrubs re-done by a landscaper about five years ago. I think that's the last time they've been touched. We're not real popular with the neighbors.

Lol Brenda.

If we had the ability, I know Dan and I would try and start a compost heap. I've decided not to plant this year, much to my dismay. But it's hard when you're all the way on the top floor. :(

I would've turned around and gone back home. And broken open the bag of chocolate chips!

Best of luck to you.

LOL Brenda!!!

Dev--you've still got time, that's for sure. We've had an unseasonably warm February. Weeds LOVE warm and wet. Especially the weeds in MY beds. Grrrr...
