Yesterday and today I have been involved in two projects that I had planned to do for over a year. I know, I know…but time and energy do not always join forces for good. I didn’t really procrastinate. I just didn’t make either project a priority. Well…done deal now.
Yesterday I cleaned and organized my storage/laundry room. Thanks to new shelving I can now find everything from bird feeders to extra tubing for my aquarium and yes, laundry soap, without digging around and going through half a dozen storage bins. Ironic too, that I have killed several scorpions this summer that have just been wandering around the house, yet I didn’t find even one hiding in all that clutter!
This morning I cleaned a corner flowerbed that I had literally abandoned. It’s in a far corner of the yard, next to the pasture, and had been taken over by grass and weeds. It had never done well, except for a few irises, and I have never liked it very much. Thanks to an article I read recently I decided to take six of my most prolific plants and transplant them to that corner. Every garden has a few plants that seem to “grow like weeds” and even become a nuisance. Those are the babies that are now at home in that corner. We shall see what lives and what doesn’t, but I had finally gotten to the point of feeling ashamed when I looked over there.
I’ve been making a few other changes here and there- new kitchen rug, new curtain in the office, new pillow for my chair. Getting ready to put new curtains in the bedroom. Sometimes little changes have a big impact! And summer is the perfect time for me to endure a little extra shopping. I even bought a new mop this week, but let’s not get too excited about me doing lots of cleaning with it! lol
Today brought some changes to the garden and more blooms from some old favorites. Tomorrow the zinnias will begin to bloom and there are buds on three of my new lilies. Each day there is something beautiful to behold.
Today also begins the journey to find out why my feet are getting worse. The first of my tests is scheduled for this afternoon and I am looking forward to finally getting some answers. Of course they won’t be disclosed today, but it is a beginning, and knowledge is power. I hope to have a diagnosis and a new treatment plan before school starts.
June 21…the official first day of summer…let the fun begin!
