buying sheets, planting, Spring Cleaning

dirt. seeds. the question ? .. will they grow?

Had I touched them- probably not. (I call myself the “kervorkian” of plants…. only plants who are ready to die end up at my doorstep)

But the boy? Along with his dirty nails…he’s got a green thumb. The seeds he planted last weekend- have already sprouted. They were in a “Veggie Tales” Learning kit. Cute. A great introduction into gardening. Although, try to convince a 5 year old that his BOB AND LARRY VEGGIE TALES GARDEN will be growing FLOWERS…. and he’ll announce: “That’s just wrong.” Take my advice, if you want to avoid circular reasoning. Buy the veggie kit. It’s a tough argument to win.

Best part? Noah got to practice gardening- and I didn’t have to muck up my nails. 😉 (Hate getting dirt under my acrylics…sand is ok…. but dirt? HATE that.)

The Spring Cleaning Frenzy, is just about complete. Not perfect- but, boy is this place in better shape than it was.

It was also- A. Lot. Of. Work. Blah. Knitting has been slow- as cleaning has taken precedence. I haven’t been doing much writing- either- ’cause mostly- I just need to get my house in order. Balance should be restored shortly. The pendulum swings. (So do my hormones)

My experiment with the “Fly Lady” (think: flying. Not BUGS.) is successful. Annoying at times… but successful. (I’ve already admitted that I don’t like to be told what to do. And, just to maintain my autonomy- and remain true to myself, I ocassionally “defy the fly”… just cause I can. I’m THAT mature. It’s true.)

To celebrate the progress- (and the fact that I can go to bed without moving laundry off of it first) I bought new sheets- from Target. On clearance- of course. Our local Target store has them for 50% off. They are 800 thread count- and cheap as I am…(we still sleep on sheet from our wedding shower….in 1988. They aren’t in the “rotation that often- but they are- it’s true;) I have to admit I will probably go buy some more this afternoon. They are soft and smooth, as can be.

These sheets make me want to make my bed and then, lie in it. I think I’ll take a nap!

  1. Thank you for introducing me to the FlyLady. I can already see changes in my home and — more importantly — my attitude. Along the lines of your other post, I see in whole new ways that criticism is not encouraging.

    I like to read your blog, but I often have trouble with it taking a L-O-N-G time to load. Could you possibly lower the resolution on your photos? Not making them appear smaller, but making them less dense per square inch. On my machine, I do that by “Resize”-ing my pics via MS Office Picture Manager. 400-500 pixels a side is still sharp, but quicker to load. It would make it easier for me to view . . . . Thanks for at least considering it.

  2. Deborah- thnx so much for commenting;) I’ll try to figure out the whole picture thing, for sure- I use flickrand it has some other options that may make it quicker to load. Glad you have enjoyed it even if it takes forever! I appreciate your idea- and patience!
