......it's a rare thing for me to drive somewhere by myself, just for fun, just to spend a little money on myself. I'm not trying to be modest or anything, it's just not been a part of my life for a long time now. Since I've come back to driving, I mostly run errands or go to Church......or those seemingly frequent doctor's visits.
So last night was really fun. I went out to the tongue of the trailer, where I had grown a tomato plant last year, and had transplanted some Irises that I found on the next lot while that trailer was empty.......(is that bad? They were being mowed frequently !) Anyway, I've planted a few Marigold seeds among the Irises and they've started to come up, and I'm really hoping that the Irises themselves will decide to bloom this year. But seeing as how Irises are already in full bloom all over town, I suspect that it'll be atleast another year before they've overcome their 'mower shock'.......I don't blame them at all; it'd take me alot more than 2 years ! So, dreading few blooms, I dug up the rest of the spot across that end and worked in a large bag of potting soil.......alas, the ground around this trailer is nothing like the fertile soil I had in my Oklahoma yard. (And I remember complaining about clay in the soil back there.)
Well, knowing that I had stuck away a little rat-hole money over the last few months, I told the hubby that I was heading out to all-mart to get me some bloomers !
I messed around out there for atleast an hour in indecision, picking up this, putting back that,......you know the drill if you know me and spending !
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
"NOW THANKS BE UNTO GOD, WHICH ALWAYS CAUSETH US TO TRIUMPH IN CHRIST !"
The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
Psalm 31: 7, 8
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.
