Fingernails Too Dirty To Type

baseball-and-yard-work-april-07-008.jpg  Reasons Why I didn’t Update Writer’s Blog Last Week:

1.  Monday:  Novel writing class; lunch with writer’s group; Extra, unexpected, blessed freelance work with extra-short, extra-hard deadline.

2.  Tuesday: Worked on novel   

2.  Wednesday:  Husband took week off work.  He and I both so busy Monday and Tuesday, didn’t really click till Wednesday that we were actually on unexpected vacation time.

3.  Thursday:  Went to Farmer’s Market, came home with truck-load of plants, flowers, fresh fruits/vegetables and great ideas.  Sliced and diced while Husband created magnificent vegetarian meal with Farmer’s Market finds.

4.  Friday:  Planted flowers and vegetables from early til late. 

5.  Friday night:  Sat on front porch rocking, admiring flowers, sipping wine, talking til too dark to see.


Last night a huge storm rumbled through the neighborhood.  Tree branches litter the street and yards.  Mercifully, our plantings survive.  This makes me happy.  Carpe Diem Y’all, Michele

  1. At least we now know why you have been neglecting your readers. Being a Master Gardener, I accept that you planted flowers instead of writing.

  2. Thank you Master T. I am not worthy. How I wish green things loved me as much as I love them! Please pray for the flowers, herbs and veggies with the great misfortune of ending up in my garden instead of yours. They need all the help they can get! Peace, Michele:)
