Disclaimer: I may have had a heat stroke yesterday . I worked so hard in my yard even my fingers hurt.
The temperature was in the 90’s.
I knew if I stopped, though, I wouldn’t be able to start moving again.
What is that about?
My father stopped by to visit around 6:30 in the evening ,while I was working on the patio, and I sat for a while outside to visit with him.
After offering him some iced tea, we had this short conversation.
Me: Daddy, I am working so hard, but I can’t keep up ( sweeping my arm dramatically over Tara).
Him: You have too much ( in the yard) to tend to.
That was that. He’s right. Drama queen comments have never worked with him anyway. (That hasn’t stopped me from trying.)
Throughout the afternoon, I used some great advice from Jayme at Tales From the Coop Keeper.
Start at one point, stay focused ,and keep moving.
This is my new affirmation.
Stay focused and keep moving.
I started working at one end of the backyard- anointing my side yard my Brecha, and made my way to the other side.
It really works.
My body doesn’t , but this theory does.
FYI: I bought pea gravel for my Brecha from Wal Mart. It is $3.98 a bag.
I recycled a broken trellis and painted it.
The red stepping stone squares are from Wal Mart too. $1.48 each.
The new wrought iron trellis is from Lowe’s.
My Brecha sign is scrap lumber.
And… my zinnias and tomatoes are here!
