STILL KICKING


Monday, April 30, 2012

A look out the window when I got up did not look to promising but today turned out better than forecasts. I had breakfast and then did the pots and pans that have been waiting to get done. Then I went out and pulled a few weeds. Almost all of them but still some for Wednesday. I stopped typing in the middle of that sentence and went out and cut asparagus for a half hour. I cut mostly the good ones but also in one section cut the thin ones so I would not have to go to that end of the rows on Wednesday. LOL

I came in and ate some lunch and made some calls and went back out and pulled more weeds. Since now I am on my own I have to get the work done. I may not be able to work hours at a time but I get it done. Have the garden almost finished cleaning it up and when I was getting the asparagus I have a lot of weeding to do there and that will be in a couple of days because it is a large patch. Then I have to clean around all the fruit bushes and that will take another week to do. Then it will be time to cut grass again if the lawn mower is fixed. I will rake the garden every week and that will keep the weeds down. Once I get the asparagus cleaned out I can rake them each week too and that will not be hard if the weeds are kept down. There is a lot of work to do but it keeps me healthy and active so no matter how old I get I will keep doing it. Just keeping what comes up year after year is enough to take care of. Later I may just put some lettuce, spinach and tomatoes in along with the regular things. But as long as I am able I will have a big garden with everything in it.

Have to get some more exercising in today and the 2nd day video was a little much for my knees but I did what I could and I will have to start doing them to make my knees stronger.

Tomorrow a busy day and I will have my Visa card because I made another payment. Knowing I can take the dogs to the Vet and relax and then come home without any problem. Then get ready for the awards dinner for bowling. Wednesday is the first day of the NO Tap Bowling and my prize money will pay for that, thank goodness.

All have a great Tuesday and have some fun, laugh and pass it on. God bless you always with his tender care and love.

Catch you tomorrow tell you about the dinner.
