A Goldfish Out Of Water

While it is still difficult for me 
to work very long out in the yard,
I was able to tidy up the covered porch
 a bit yesterday morning.
It felt sooooo good 
to be outside and have my 
hands in the dirt and catching the scents
of cilantro, basil and mint.

Normally I wander Star Nursery for hours, 
but yesterday I managed a productive 30 minutes
 and came home after adopting two of these.

They call it a Goldfish plant

I stood there in the store,
staring at the delicate bloom



that's me

a fish out of water

Suzan, I have never seen that plant. It is still cold here, but some warm days scattered in. I just want it to warm up. Tired of being cold. I have much to do outside, but I can't do it all at once, so I need lots of warm days. I've stayed out of the garden centers so far. Too tempting.

I'm so glad you got out at least a little bit. I love that plant! I'm icky from allergies right now (worst pollen count in over two years ugh). I've been working in my house and have made some great progress. So much more to go, but I feel like I will make a big difference in 2018!! Hugs and take care my friend. You have been sick for far too long.

Good for you. I am sooo glad that you are feeling better. How did the garage sale go? I hope it was a lot of fun for you and the kids.

The sale is the end of this month, the last Friday. My pal Annie and I are overwhelmed with piles of stuff . Now 1/2 of my garage is filled and there’s still more at her place. I cannot wait to see the kids. It’s been since Christmas and I get to meet Helene for the first time. Ben will be cooking and the boys will help with a few chores that I am unable to do right now. YAY!

Way to go! Little steps and before long you will be back up and running. Well, maybe not running but you know what I mean. Enjoy your gold fish! Now that is the best kind of Kit

Dirt therapy. It's the best.

So good to here you are getting out and about Z ..... I've just been out in the garden for a while ... pruned a few things but everywhere is so wet. We've had rain for what seems like weeks although, next week is going to be quite warm and sunny. Keep well, take care and don't overdo it. XXXX
