It was a lovely weekend to work outside in the garden. Our project of thinning, rearranging and shoveling tons and tons and tons of river rocks is just about done, at least for this year.
We had several set backs!
* I am not suppose to be doing this kind of work at all but I had to protect my babies from the Big Footed Stomp Monster (my husband)
....after everyday we got the chance to work on the project my back would be out and I would be in severe pain for several days,
* my heart would race and I would get out of breath.....Failed a stress test and found a heart problem to add to my list of heath issues....
* my husband failed to latch the trailer on correctly and the trailer came off with a ton of rocks, swinging around and trashing the entire back of his new dually
and finally
* we ran out of fabric to put down to help prevent any weeds We have lots more to do but I think I will like it a lot when it is all done...I wonder how much it did actually cost?!!!!!!

Blog Tag?

Well here I am, playing a game of "blog tag" which means I must reveal 6 secrets about myself then tag others to do the same. Thanks can check her out at or read her secrets at
Here goes:
6. I am very unhealthy and overweight, that said I have a brown belt in martial arts from back in the day:)
5. I am a control freak...everything has a place, that said I am so organized that I am unorganized
4. I never loose a fight ...ask my husband, he always says "YES DEAR"
3. I don't know how to sew , ya I took a mandatory class in high school back in the day:) I used to watch my Mom lay patterns out all over the dinning room table and pray it wasn't for me!!!!!!!!
2. 95% of gift giving is boss called me thrifty, my employees called me cheap!
1. Jack of all trades, master of none...I guess that isn't much of a secret

OK, then now, I have to find others to play along....
