trouble with the new job

Saturday, September 26, 2015      2 comments

Ok so I love the new job.... except with the travel and not walking at work like I used to I have decided I will have to keep moving! A walk during lunch will help in addition to really watching what I eat while on the road... I can do this!... Read more

Picked eggplant, broccoli, cucumbers, jalapeno peppers, sugar snap peas, onions and tomatoes. At that point I ran out of room in my picking basket, so today I'll tackle the beans, kale, kohlrabi and check the corn. Family and friends have "pla... Read more

Today and tomorrow will be tough for me to find time to get moving. Today I'm tied up in a lot of "sitting" duties and potentially the same tomorrow. I refuse to let my steps suffer- I must be able to find the time someplace to get my steps in... Read more

I forgot to water my lettuce this morning- but we're supposed to get some rain, so I hope it will hang on through the day. I can water it when I get home- I just hate to put it through the torture of needing water all day long. Looking forward... Read more

Didn't do the sparkler candles after I looked at the reviews online- they didn't get very good reviews about the actual sparks. But, here's the cakes. The big one was red, white and blue in layers- sort of cool! Happy Birthday! Read more

With all the rain I haven't been able to get in the garden and weed- however, the lettuce is loving the cooler temperatures and the moisture. Now if I could just give my spinach a little nudge! Read more
