After all this time, I hadn’t figured out what I really wanted to do with my planting. Then I saw this…

Maybe the idea was in the back of my mind, but I've wasted a good portion of the day (which I could not afford to do) opening and closing web pages on getting more tree and plant ideas (which I can't afford to buy right now, anyway). I suppose going out and placing landscaping barrier … Continue reading After all this time, I hadn’t figured out what I really wanted to do with my planting. Then I saw this…

Learning new things in the garden a little at a time… & knowing you’re gonna go WAY past your initial investment if you don’t watch it.

I didn't get too much done today--too much work outside the home and I was nodding off mid-day, so I napped through quite a bit of it. Bummed me out because I had plans, but sleep needs to happen, too. What little I did do happened in my garden, and as I let myself SLOWLY … Continue reading Learning new things in the garden a little at a time… & knowing you’re gonna go WAY past your initial investment if you don’t watch it.

When “sleeping on it” is the best thing you’ve done for yourself all week…

I try to be a creative person as much as I can. But I have a few things that tend to get in the way of that, namely that I'm an over-analyzer with impulsive tendencies. I realized while writing this that it doesn't make much sense. You're generally either one or the other. Well, I'm … Continue reading When “sleeping on it” is the best thing you’ve done for yourself all week…

Bright Ideas, Happy Accidents, Giving it all away & Making a sale. Or, one damned busy Friday I didn’t expect…

I was drinking coffee on my porch a few days ago, enjoying the morning weather when I was hit by something. My old house used to be a lot longer than the one I have now, and there was a carport attached for my grandma's car (she moved out over 20 years ago). Eventually, my … Continue reading Bright Ideas, Happy Accidents, Giving it all away & Making a sale. Or, one damned busy Friday I didn’t expect…

Finally knuckled down & did something that made sense for my goals: I bought a microwave.

That may not seem like much, but I haven't had a working microwave in over three years and was totally okay with never getting one. Every one I was looking at was so damned big when I considered it before. I have plenty of counter space, but most of it isn't very deep in this … Continue reading Finally knuckled down & did something that made sense for my goals: I bought a microwave.

Amazing how a grocery chain can enact an emergency plan & have it’s sh** together long before the government even starts to…

I have an H-E-B grocery about a dozen miles from my place. I went there on an errand when this whole mess was shutting things down (in the first waves of the Toilet Paper Wars, too). Things were orderly, and I wrote about it last week, so I won't rehash the whole weird day. I'll … Continue reading Amazing how a grocery chain can enact an emergency plan & have it’s sh** together long before the government even starts to…
