Back to the Stone Age...


Hello again dear blog, sorry for the long departure, but I could not find my camera ANYWHERE until today when I found it shoved in a couch cushion.. Isn't that where things always end up? Its like every couch has a "couch monster" who secretly "eats" all of the things sitting on the couch at night and the next morning when your rushing around looking for the keys or your phone, a lightbulb appears over your head and you go "oh yeah!" thats where they'll be! Anyhoo, you really havent missed much this week or the last since I have not been doing much other then gardening and shopping. Yes, more shopping, at the mall, at the bookstore and of course at Michaels!
This week I was deprived of my television shows that I record on DVR since my cable box "broke" and I had to take it back to Comcast to get another one, which also did not work. I was so angry when I found out it was just the wires, and that I didn't need to return my old box (which had all of my recorded programs)to Comcast. My Martha, Brando, Guys and Dolls, Gardening shows, Thats Clever's!, oh how upset I was! But, I realized that it did have a postive effect, and since I did not spend 2 hours in front of the TV watching my recorded shows for the day, I was able to go outside and get things done. Over the three days, I planted some more seeds, cleaned up my potting table, cleaned the house, my bedroom, as well as some of the garden beds which desperatley needed some attention. As for TV, I have decided that I no longer need it. Although it does provide inspiration and entertainment along with some educational information at times, it takes away precious time that I have to do other things, like enjoying the sunny weather, or the smell of the new lavender buds which are blooming. As for the pictures of todays post, the first is of some hosta leaves which I made a pretty little arrangment to fill the empty space in which my peonies once filled, and the second one is of some gardening books which I found time to read over my "TV free" period :) And the last is of a cute "Antique" sign I picked up at Michaels on SALE for a really great price. I plan on hanging it in my kitchen! As for today my friends, thats it, but until next time I wish you time to enjoy the outdoors as well as some good old fashioned silent time, with no TV or computer!! (lets see how long that lasts! ;)

Hi, great blog! I have a question, what is in the backround of most of your pictures? is it wallpaper or scrapbook paper? I love it...so pretty.

I've enjoyed a very nice time here this evening reading your wonderful blog and seeing the lovely photos you've shared. The flowers are all so pretty. I've been avoiding Michaels for awhile, but I've seen a lot of the new "Martha" line on many blogs. I don't know how much longer I can hold out, but I'm trying to use up what I have for a little while. Love the sign you've bought.
I don't usually watch much tv during the warmer months, but when I do, it's usually baseball games with my husband. Then I try to use that time for getting a little handwork done. You're so right about the amount of time it can take away from actually living.
Thanks for taking the time to leave your nice comment. I appreciate it.
