Yesterday was the final day to visit with Mama before she went back to Iowa. She bought me an Endless Summer Hydrangea bush to plant in my yard. I had recently seen a couple of blue Hydrangea bushes & fell in love with them, so I was thrilled with this gift! I need to buy aluminum sulfate to use when we plant it so it will turn the pink bloms it now has into the blue blooms that I want.
My muscles are sore from working out in the yard. I haven't been spending loads of time working - only 30 minutes each day, but it's obviously a greater workout than I thought! I usually go out in the morning to work while it's cool, but today is our day to run errands and shop for groceries. I will probably work out there this evening after it cools off a bit.
I got stuck by a couple of palmetto plants that were growing along the driveway. My, do those things hurt! I dug them up yesterday so the kids and the dog don't end up running into them. I am seeing improvement little by little and, surprisingly, I actually enjoy the work.
I plan to create a Home & Garden Journal to keep all my notes, ideas, and plans in. What a fun project that will be! I already have one for Christmas, one to track our finances and debt-reduction, and another that holds pictures of my favorite decorating pictures from magazines.
