Rain rain ....

I hate feeling sick and nauseous, but it's a good test for this house: how sick and nauseous can I be and the house still function well?

How much personal energy is required?
So far there are no piles of laundry to fold. But our driveway is washing away- that is because it never got stabilized and the rains keep pouring- at least we got the retaining wall up. The rest of the yard is responding pretty well to the rain. We are getting lots of weeds with our grasses in our yard- and we are getting voluntary ground cover in my garden beds.

Stabalizing that driveway will be our next project - assuming that I am actually able to get out of bed this weekend- the compost bin will be put off another week- sigh

In my mind this is what pretty tastes like


I am not much of a flower gardener. I really think gardens should do more then look pretty, so here is the one portion of my garden devoted to "pretty"

My rose

Every valentines day and anniversary my husbands wants to buy me flowers, I tell him to buy my a bush. So we finally have some roses.

A stroll through my garden

Every homestead needs a garden. Here are my garden's current highlights.
