So much dirt..

I went to plant some lily’s this morning. I dug a hole and the hole got bigger and bigger. And because it was on a slope I realized I would have to make tiers, just one but had to cut back more. It is my front walk and there are three steps. On either side of this there is a slope and it looks or rather looked like one hot mess!  I have many rocks and used that as well to stabilize all this.

My neighbor from down the street came walking over and I got her take on the whole look on the rock garden because that is what it turned out to be. By the time she left, she gave me a lot of ideas to work from painting my weathered and paint stripped front steps to my home to the frames around my windows but with some electric colors not the mundane white. I want it to POP!

And now I have some work to do in the coming days and look forward to how it will all look! And this all started out this morning because I wanted to plant some lily’s…


Vision Board

This morning I am off to my friends home to start our Vision Boards. My friend Sue had been wanting to do this project but just not knowing where to start or how to go about it. I jumped at this request and am now off to her place with all the things needed for this.

  • Poster board
  • magazines (I had many Oprah mags)
  • scissors & glue sticks
  • paint & scrap booking supplies
  • great attitude

Go through all your magazines and pick some great words or images with which to go for your 2015 board, all the things in life you would desire for this year. I already have some cut out and abundance, joy, grateful & kitchen renovations stand out for me. I also had already painted my poster board with blue clouds and a big old yellow sun in the middle. Trying to be creative and looking good already!
