For the Testimony I documented Spring, Tucked journaling into a basket,Journaling Strips & used the words: Spring,fresh & lovely
Every Spring is crazy for me,but this one tops it. I am a gardener so in the Spring, I have a lot of clean up to do before I can plant all of my annuals.This year was our longest coldest winter yet, so once the snow went I made sure that I started my clean up. The first thing that had to be done of course is pick up all the 5 months of 5 dogs mess. I then blew out all the gardens to remove the leaves & debris that had accumulated through out the fall & winter (I always do a fall clean up,but there is still lots of clean up in the spring). My next step was to rake the grass to remove all the thatch.I got all this done before we got another 8 inches of snow on May 1st, I was so happy I had that much cleaned up because we lost another week. Yesterday my oldest son was home so we rented a grass dethatcher & went over the grass again with that,raked up the thatch & seeded where it needed to be seeded. The gardens & lawn is now ready & I will have 2 sons home this Mothers Day Weekend to help me clean up the pots,add more soil,& take out the outdoor furniture,so that I will be ready to plant on the May long weekend or just after that.So that is my next fear planting time, I plant like I scrapbook,I can not leave any empty space, so it requires a lot of time. I used to shut down my Scrapbooking for the summer, but now I am on a couple design teams so I have to keep up with my commitments.My Mother & Father are both dealing with major health issues,so after Christmas I moved them into my home & have become their caregiver. So my time is tight & I sure hope my sons will come & visit to help me plant. Once I am done my Spring heavy work,I will be good to go, I hope!!!
