Spinning

IMG_0180

        I don’t know if my head is spinning from the vertigo I have had for the past two days or my to do list.

        My to do list is much more fun to think about.

IMG_0182

        By Friday morning I have to:

*plant 50 plus caladium bulbs

*plant 20 liriope

*plant 20 Aztec plants

*plant 5 ligustrum

*plant 6 purple lantana

*plant 2 new rose bushes, an Arizona rose and a Lowell  Thomas rose

*hope that my new antique rose from my dear friend Aissa doesn’t get angry and keel over while I am gone

*pack for a long weekend of baby-sitting my grandsons

*pack my cart to go to Round Top and Warrenton

*think of things to blow my grandsons’ minds

        My head really is spinning.

Laura, what happened to resting on the couch? Just thinking of all you are planning on doing is making MY head start to spin! Take it easy, can the plants wait? Now, if you're planning on going to Round Top and Warrenton, we better get the scoop!
love you, take care of yourself!

I got dizzy just reading your list. Are you sure you should be bending over?
OK...if you're packing your cart, do I need to give you directions on where to find me and when? I'll be there Fri. morning at 8:30. My tent is at Zapp Hall in downtown Warrenton...just look for the gas station...that's downtown! If you get there you could spit and hit me! I'm right in front of the beer garden at Zapp...you can't miss me. Just look for the dirty faced woman and you've found me!

Ahhh...Laura, a grandmothers work is just never, ever done! Fact of life. Except for me, the grands are all getting married or in college. Now what?

Nancy said...

Have fun! I'm certainly enjoying my grandson this week!

Theresa said...

Call the neighbors and a few friends to help:) Sounds like a whole bunch to get done my friend. Don't forget to rest a tad and have a blessed day!

I love the new look for your blog.

Jojo said...

Good luck! I was at a conference last week and every woman I sat next to was making a to-do list. Didn't notice any of the men doing this. Why is it the women are always managing the chores!

Jane said...

That is quite a list of plantings! Have fun babysitting the grandsons and shopping at Round Top and Warrenton.

You are going to be one busy lady today. I love to plant! Your blog looks gorgeous! Love the header. Have a great time in Warrenton.

LIST MAKING!!! When my head gets so full I have to make a list or ten! Somehow putting it on paper eases my mind. Even if I dont get them all done.

Chatty Crone said...

If anyone can do it - it will be you. Slow and steady wins the race. You will have beautiful flowers when they come up and a great visit with your grandkids to remember.

sincerely,
sandie

Spring and lists seem to go hand in hand. You are so lucky to live within babysitting distance of your grandkids.

Nancy's Notes said...

List, how could we live without them! Yours does seem pretty long, but love what's on them! Oh my gosh, I am thinking about going to Roundtop, I emailed you! Want to know the scoop too! I know you will knock your grandson's socks off!! You are a great grandmother! Lucky boys!

A Rose Without A Thorn said...

Wow, that is an impressive to do list of bulb planting and flowers. I know they will all look lovely, Maureen....

Attic Rat said...

My head is spinning thinking about your long list. Your yard will look beautiful when you are done.

I checked the weather for Warrenton and it looks PERFECT! I already have my rolling cart packed. We're taking the cargo trailer and I'm hoping to fill it up!

Happy Hunting,
Teresa

Wow, you are going to be one busy lady! Enjoy the time with your grandsons!

Mimi said...

My head would be spinning, too, if I had all that to plant! But in a couple months, just think how beautiful it will be...

Nola @ the Alamo said...

That's about a month's worth of planting for me! I wanna see photos when you have it all planted. Hope you have a great time.

Wish I were meeting you at RoundTop! I guess I better stay here and plan a wedding though. I can sure relate to that head spinning. And the grandsons!

Jenny said...

It sounds like you will have a botanical garden when you're done.

Have fun.

But don't forget to exhale.
