But, praise God, I always seem to find that the rebirth around me seems to spur me on, and gradually, day by day, I find that I can jump right back into the old routine. I am more tired in the evenings than I was in my younger days, but, hey, that's the price of getting older, right?
Today, I thought I'd try to weed a couple of flowerbeds, but wound up working at it for probably 4 or 5 hours without tiring. I was amazed, and just kept thanking the Lord for my renewed energy. I quit around suppertime, and went into the house, stood about 5 minutes, and TIRED washed over me like a warm shower ! You know what,,.........that's okay. Hubby-sweetkins was patient enough to settle for a summer sausage, cheese and cracker meal since I had gotten totally wrapped up in my yardwork and forgot to thaw his dinner. Maybe I'll even sleep good for a change.
Oh what a blessing a good night's sleep is.........if you sleep well, never take it for granted ! It is a blessing straight from God !
Changing subjects, sortof, I have more flower photos.
These are a perennial called CandyTuft.
I had never raised them before, but bought two plants last spring. They stayed green all Winter, and began blooming again in late January or February if I recall right. The second photo shows where they are in relation to the Violets and Violas I shared yesterday, my front sidewalk.
|The sky under which I worked today ~!~|
And this is a photo of my yard from ground-level. Someone asked yesterday what kind of grass I have because my yard is currently just a flowing carpet (occasionally interspersed with a weed or two) of little tiny white and purple flowers. I don't know what it is, but it happens every Spring around here, and I wait until it's gone to do a full mowing because I just think that it is lovely !
I apologize to anyone who started following this blog because of quilting info that I might share. Once the weather breaks, I find myself drawn outside.......after all, this little home is only 700 square feet, and I'm a big girl; I desire space ! But the lure of the sewing machine is equally strong, and will soon win again !
