What the heck have I been doing lately...I had not realized I have not blogged since Wednesday...golly! Since all the "lucky" girls were at Bead Fest I was stuck enduring the most gorgeous weather that Tennessee has to offer ( a good consolation prize).
I know what I have not been doing...and that is chasing little garden snakes. Jack "the cat" loves bringing these home for me, oh joy!
One of the things I have been working on are magazine submissions to Step by Step Wire. They are all done...that is a big weight off my shoulders, I hate deadines and I am the queen of procrastination. I really would like to send another shout out of thanks to Cindy Wimmer for all your support and help, I would not have done it without your encouragement and guidance. Here is a peek at what will be in the the Aug/Sept. issue.
I started planting my vegetable garden, it is a little earlier than usual but with my sister coming in a few weeks I took advantage of the lovely weather to plant. I have little 3 x 3 raised beds, it is next to impossible to plant in this ledge rock we call soil. I plant a nice little variety, so far I have 5 different tomato plants, red& green peppers, eggplant, beans, red leaf lettuce, romaine lettuce, arugula, yellow squash, cantaloupe and more to come. Yes, it all fits in my little boxes and the best part is no weeding!
Last year we decided we needed a fence to protect my investment from the bunnies and the deer, so that is what the DH is working on now. The garden is just getting more and more expensive! We are also finishing up sodding our yard so that should be done in a few days. I will post some before and after pictures when it is done.
I think I actually may get in my studio this evening and relax and create a little something, something.
Thanks for stopping by today.
