I won an award!!

My sweet friend Linda over at Prairie Flower Farm picked me for this Sunshine Award!! It truely bought a little more sunshine to my day too. Thank You Linda you are the best!!

I sure hope my blog adds a little sunshine to my readers day!
I know it's impossible to impart a sunshiney attitude upon my readers when all I have spoke of lately is my suffering from the flu (now with a sinus infection belecky!!!) but be patient I will be back to normal (well my normal that is) soon. I found a totally unsuspecting Dr friend of the family who was kind enough to call me in an antibiotic today all the way from his family vacation in Las Vegas!!! Now it pays to have friends like that doesn't it??? He may just be surprised with a Homemade Blueberry Pie one day this summer!! Ssshhhh don't tell him my little secret!!

I had listed earlier my huge list of outdoor chores and I have been thinking about that list and added a slew of things to it. I am not so sure if that was a good idea or not. I am historically not a list maker. That got me into a lot of hotwater in a position as a Director Of Nursing one time too. My boss, the Director of the facility was a list maker and expected me to be also. He made list of his lists!!! I never could get the hang of it tho. I have over the years used lists to accomplish several tasks and to help me stay focused on accomplishing those tasks. So I thought it may be a good idea for me to make a list of outdoor chores that I could get crossed off and out of the way this year cause it seems like I got "Nothing" accomplished last year. I am now thinking that I have listed too many things, maybe all this doesn't need to be done this Spring/Summer. I am afraid that this big ole list may intimidate me and cause me to run the other way. I will give it a try with the list and hope that I can see some things being crossed off of it soon, if not I will tear the list up and go about my summer as usual.....jumping from one thing to the other!! Like gardening....I will start weeding in this one section and before it's finished I will be tilling or replanting on the complete opposite side of the garden!!! Never fails!! My gardening friends tell me they do the same thing!! Do you guys do that?

After making this list this morning I went to hunt my new pruners that Danny bought me last year and Lo and Behold I could not find them. How was I to do any trimming or pruning without pruners? So off to Lowes I went and bought a pair...swung by the pharmacy for good drugs, came home and opened the package of my new pruners, stepped into the garage and there were my other pruners!!!!!!!! Now I have 2 pair to help me with that list!!!!!!! Maybe I need a new eye Dr???????

When I was a kid, my Dad always told me, "If it hadda been a snake it woulda bit ya!" That's what he told me when I was looking and looking for something and it was right in front of me all the time. :D

Don't let the "list" keep you from enjoying your spring/summer. If you don't have fun ... then what's the good of getting things on that list done anyway?

Congrats on the award! I am glad I am not the only one that searches for things only to find them right in front of me after I have bought a replacement. So glad you can garden/prune. We are expecting another snowfall this weekend .....

Congratulations on the award, you deserve it! My time here is always fun!!
On the issue of is very typical....of start one project and end up doing something totally different! That is a certified/labeled/documented fact my friend!! A true gardener wouldn't do it anyway else!
Have fun out in the garden, it's been steadily in the mid to high 60's here with lots o' sunshine, so I've been getting lots accomplished in my gardens. Have a great day!

It never fails... buy a replacement and you'll find the one you were looking for!

And I do the same thing with the short attention span-type thing. I'll start cleaning one room but before it's done, I'll get distracted in another room and start working on it.

For some reason I cannot get the comment to open on the above post. Sweetie I would trim back your snowball bush in the fall of the year to get the blooms the following year.

God bless and have a fabulous Friday!
