I love the rain but I would like to see the
. The leaves on my tomato plants are turning yellow with spots. I would hate for my roses to have the same fate.
The good thing is that the ground is soft and I can do some weeding in my wildflower garden without much of a struggle. It's so hard to work over there because I don't know what is a flower and what isn't. By the time I figure it out, it's overgrown with grass and I'm too afraid to go through it because of the little animals that I love, but am afraid of. Hubby bought me a tool with a long handle, so no excuses this week. I forbid him to help because last time he "helped", he mowed my ENTIRE garden down!
Yesterday was kind of rough. It was one of those days that I couldn't satisfy my hunger. How many nuts, apples, salad can one eat? How much tea, coffee, water can one drink? It finally ended about 1AM. I finished it off with a bowl of rice krispies. Just wondering, did I end the hunger pangs for yesterday or did I start early for today?
I was extremely fatigued and ended up sleeping another 4 hours after I put Kina on the bus. I woke up and went for my walk. My legs felt like noodles, but I persevered. I got in a good 40 minutes of exercise yesterday between walking and hitting tennis balls. And my heart rate was in the target zone.
It's very wet out but I'm still going to slip on some old shoes and head over to the flea market. I had my eye on a few prairie skirts that I want to wear to the beach this summer. I hope they're still there. I used to be a shopaholic so I tend to pass a lot of things by. I come home and think about it to decide if I really need it, then I'll go back and buy it if I do. Unfortunately, when I go back, the items are usually sold.
Today's small step...
Do something that makes me happy. Right now, Pinterest makes me happy. Anybody else on that site? It's like making a big, ole' happiness collage.
Make today great!
