I had broke down a couple of weeks ago and asked my friends, BJ & Marg, if they would consider coming to help me with my flower bed that I had neglected for 2 years (since I had no desire the last couple years to even attempt weeding) Now that I have been feeling better, after considering taking out the garden, I decided I wanted to keep it as I have enjoyed it in so many past years after I had first put it in.
The three of us got going just after 9 am, going until 12:15. The time went really quickly with us talking and laughing as we worked. I made them stop, as they would have kept going, since I had made lunch reservations for us at 12:30 at the Green Door Cafe.
We managed to get 3/4 of the garden weeded.
The girls told me they would come back to help me finish it off. We are hoping for a big rain day so we can weed a day after when the soil is not so hard.
The beauty of all this, in my books, is that I had two friends not only come and help me, but also never judged me. Good friends are the best !!! I am blessed with fantastic friends.
To be quite honest I am very much "out of shape" as that bit of gardening has set my muscles to aching and I am tired. It is a good tired, one of those that make you look at what you have accomplished and take pleasure in. Pleasure? something I hadn't been feeling for a long time, and quite ecstatic to feel this way once again.
The rest of my day? I had to go out to take some photos this afternoon, then Rob and I had a lovely dinner of BBQ's Spatchcock Chicken and fresh asparagus. Oh yum it was !
