I creep out of my shell, overdo. Get hurt and/or frustrated. Then creep back in. I'm trying not to. Months ago, I found myself spending almost all day on Spark. I stopped for a few months knowing this wasn't really healthy, missing the social aspects and not being able to exercise a lot due to ear drainage that was yuck. I came back. I enjoy it. But am afraid to reach out as I did before. The transience of so many on here, just like fb. I guess it's difficult for me not to take it as rejection which is, I suppose, rather silly. Imagine that..I worked almost five years doing Census, but the longer I was at it, the more difficult it was becoming to make that first visit/call of the day. But I knew, once out of the way, it was great (until a new supervisor).
In our family growing up, obsessive compulsive was 24/7. If you weren't you were hum drum, middle of the road, apathetic, lethargic, and 'what's wrong with you'? LOL We all have high energy levels too....
My children have high energy, we did a lot, but I raised them without much of the crazy irrationality of mixed obsessive compulsive personalities....working hard to balance and make it fun, regardless. I hope that I succeeded.
Whatever you try that's for your good this week, I hope that you succeed. Have a beautiful, progressive week!

Silhouetted trees and homes, as the sun quietly rises in a blue grey sky, gradually revealing sparkling ice upon the limbs and eaves. The world is aglow, then dazzling. Yet as it melts, we see gentle streams starting toward the streets, and helping to nurture lawns for buds yet to happen. The rose bushes with the new leaves, properly trimmed in crimson. The birds begin to look for suitable building materials. The rabbits, the squirrels, cautiously checking out their last year's turf to see if it will remain so this year..Gentle awakening. Please take time to notice.

I have many friends on here, and some folks that I don't know that like to garden. I love gardening (excepting things like poison ivy and oak which I'm highly allergic to and bee/wasp stings). However, I live in an apartment, with a balcony. Any suggestions on what to grow, how to grow, etc? I do fine with gardens, landscaping, etc. But it seems that I do not have a green thumb when it comes to container gardening. I have yet to be convinced that 'potting' soil is the be all end all of real gardening. Am I missing something important..do I need rock and gravel at the bottom, what kind of drainage-this is Texas...I'm more interested in fruit and interspersing so no one notices, amidst flowers, peas and beans? LOL
Help please! And please share what you all are doing with yours and what you'll have and how you're going about it....Please....
If I had my druthers (cute word that), I'd probably have grapevine on the metal railings and vines at the roof, put out a little white bistro table and container fruits and veggies and flowers...dream on...
