It just no use of pretending anymore , I am sad and cannot seem to lift my spirit enough to encourage my spark friends lately and I apologize. Sometimes I pray for a dull day. One of my friends referred to me as a energizer bunny - always on the go but , sometimes one needs to slow down and regroup . Since the floods I have been going non - stop taking care of other people that need me ( my Mom ) . There are other issue in my life that rearing their ugly heads right now , that I have no control over but still need to deal with ( lawsuit for the legs , a divorce ???? - that was just recently explained to me - that I am useless !!! ) Which I know I am not useless - it just evil how some people treat other people but what comes around goes around. I will not be blogging about any of these issues in future. One issue, legally I cannot the other while sad is it what it is !!
I have been dealing with a major Toothache this past month , originally was thought to be TMJ when the first sign appeared as a earache - so a week of antibiotics and then Sat. , address this Molar that actually turns out to be an extra Wisdom Teeth - no wonder why I am so smart LOL - This toothache has also prompted me to cancel my next run , Run to Remember 5k that 's Ok there are plenty of races to come - But , I have also been busy Spring Cleaning ( its hard for me to sit still when I have a lot on my mind) my house really needed a good clean as for over two years I was either casted or in Physical Therapy and if you think DH cleaned ( more like cleaned me out) while I down you are mistaken but , that's OK now I can clean and organize what I will be taking with me during the move - most likely within the next year. I have also been planting my garden and my Moms - great workout - So I am down another three pounds ( I am eating with this toothache , soft foods) and few inches too !!! So that's the good news! I just need to get my thoughts together before I can be positive to other people , its just the way I work. Will be better soon - Hugs LiL Sad Racer

Starting to Bloom over here and am I excited. The beds are trimmed in Tree branches that I pruned from the year prior to provide a border. I am total Organic.
Today I purchased a Environmental Push Lawn Mower , then had to assemble ! Piece of cake that I didn't have to eat ! So mowed the lawn , weed whacked , edged. Then really became ambitious - I dove into the Garden today just like every thing else I do in my life lately full force like there's no tomorrow. I feel it already ( good pain )
I went outside this evening to let Mini and Mr. Belmont finish their last barks at the neighbors before retiring and I was just thrilled to see all that I accomplished today. I like to take pictures of my garden in progress. Mr. Belmont under the Lilac Tree , sniffing the Daffodils and awaiting the bloom of the Bearded Iris - that section has Lily of Valley , Salvia , columbine , clematis , Chinese lanterns and couple of tulip's and assorted other eye candy , this bed blooms all year round.
So no tomatoes , cucumbers, cilantro , pepper , basil's ( few different kind) beets , carrots , cabbage yet as we still could have a frost. I have those plants upstairs occupying the stained glass shop , all of them I seed , in late February. Those will be planted at the end of May. They will be planted in these beds that are under construction - I line my bed with pine clippings from my pine trees and evergreens to provide a mulch - in time will turn brown but most important it wards off weeds - it does !! Mini checking out the Green Onions that I planted today and the preparation of the new bed for Basil ( Greek , red and cinnamon) she is under the plum tree.
I did harvest my Garlic which is now drying on the back porch on a screen . Then planted some ground cover and finally - I reshuffled a couple of wheel barrels of rocks !!! To the back of my Garden which primarily serves has Bird and Butterfly sanctuary planted there is natural plants from the Prairie State such as bunny grass , zebra grass, Black Eyed Susanne , Brown Eyed Susanne , Russian sage, cone flower , lavender, bee balm and many others and then jasmine as the seasons warms these plants help prevent erosion and smell wonderful also fun to watch Birds and see the Monarchs return every year. Oh and I caught a glimpse of ah , the wee people , the fairies that keep this garden growing !! LiL Sore but Happy Racer Sleep well - will out be all day tomorrow - will take picture not the garden - Downtown Tomorrow with rest the of Million Blackhawks Fans !! Go Hawks !!! !! Hugs Karen
