I decided to try to discipline myself recently, I do not know why I think this might work for me when it never worked for my mom and she is much tougher than I am! I am going to try anyway. The impetus for this was me trying to find my sewing machine under the stack of 'current' projects. I realized I am sort of ADD about my projects, I start something and then I see something else and think ooh, I want to see if I can do that, so I start it to see if I can and voila(!), another 'current' project is born! For the next few weeks then I am not allowed to start anything new, I can only make lists, when I have finished all the projects currently underway, I can then start something new if I want. (this does not include the long term stuff like the quilt - but it does include all the currently begun crocheting and sewing) I hope I am slightly more successful at this than the weight loss or exercise programs. (sigh) If nothing else at least it got me to inventory the 'in progress' works and making a list of them automatically made it more organized...yes?
It has been beautiful here this week and we have been out in the yard enjoying the weather, I know it could freeze still, but it sure feels like this may be the real thing and winter may actually be over! (knock on wood)
So here is a little of the recent week activities.
The cherry tree is loaded with blossoms and you could hear the bees going to town on the pollinating, the hum was just a little unnerving for those of us even mildly allergic to them.
This is my new best friend taking a break from tilling the front planter, I can't help it I just am thrilled at the ease of getting the ground ready with this guy - Hubby is almost jealous!
Rhubarb, Columbines, Lavender, and Salvia enjoying the sun and the mulching.
Today the apple tree started humming as well and the blossoms are about 3/4's open, the pink undersides and the while petals are so pretty!
Happy Easter to all! Wishing you all a blessed day!
