Garden bug....

Today was so pretty here, after being sick I just couldn't stay inside for one more second. I decided I was going to get my burn permit and burn up all the twigs in my yard. I then started looking at moving my old compost pile. Transferring it into a new bin my husband Don is building me. I rake and moved all the top parts out picking up sticks and things. Well it exposed some wonderful rich soil. I am excited to plant watermelons and pumpkins there in the spring. They will do great there. We are working towards getting our garden back in shape this year. I have not put any focus outside for a while. I am so satisfied with getting things prepared for spring. I believe working outside is a great way to be close with God!~~~~big long sigh of satisfaction ~~~~

Oh and I figure this is a great workout for me as well!!

Make plans

Well I have always said how to make God laugh, tell Him your plans. I had all of these great New years plans. Which I am doing really good about keeping to them. But way to throw a monkey wrench in getting the stomach bug from hell! I am not kidding. I have not been sick like that well really ever that I know of. It didn't last real long. I would have had to have gone to the hospital other wise. That was awful. I am going to get back to it in the morning. I really didn't go off track food wise because well 1 saltine cracker and a can of ginger ale don't count! I think I was as frustrated by the fact that it was beautiful outside this weekend. I would have been outside doing something instead of stuck inside. Well enough of my whining about it. Better now so moving on.
