Checking my plants!
I have been so busy this past week as a few of you know that I have forgotten what I preach to others!!! "Stop, take deep breaths and be still." So I finally did this after the funeral today and man I am so glad I did. Sometimes our lives get so busy we forget about the little things that keep us going. I sat and watched my cats and how they were reacting to the way I was. I smiled and knew that things are better now and I am headed back on track. I glanced at a Blue Jay taking corn right off the cob. I watched two beautiful Cardinals and their partners eating at the feeders. I watched my outside cat make an attempt at catching something that was actually invisible to me but not him......he never got anything but he had fun trying! I watch the fish in my pond on the bottom waiting for winter so they can get it over with and get some fantastic fish food in the Spring. I watch a leaf fall on my arm and wondered about my life. I sat on that bench and saw so many things that I have not looked at in a week and started smiling at them and praising my cat for not catching that invisible object. I came into my house and looked around and wondered again about my life. I got on the computer and went to my gals on the Secret Garden Board and laughed and smiled and cried. I love those gals and I know they love me as much. I got up from this computer and sat and wondered again about my life. And ya know something? I smiled.
I am a native West Virginian that loves gardening. I am 6 years away from retiring so I can garden some more. I have 2 flowers sales a year one in the Spring and one in the Fall. I make enough money to buy more flowers! We also have 5 cats and one dog that you will see in here!! I have started making handmade soap. This is something that feels so natural. I have been going to Craft Fairs and just love the people I meet and the things we talk about. Plus I work a full time job on a Behavioral Health Unit in my area.
