Mulching

Caribbean Jumbo Mayan hammockWhy I waited until now to finish my flower garden, I do not know? I started the season off early, clearing out old perennials, weeding, and getting ready for mulch.

Then…well, I am not sure what to blame it on. Maybe the weather? But, here, I am, weeding again! Yuk! The weeds are “thick as theives” too. Then, I will be mulching immediately this time! I hope I learned a lessson and do not repeat this next year. Later, this evening, as I lay resting in my Mayan hammock, exhausted, no doubt, I am going to write this is my garden journal. I just keep practicing at this!

It Is Hot!

Mayan hammock - American styleWow! 86 degrees today! I know, I know, we complained about the colder temps, however, could we have something in between?!

It was a hot day in the sun! After a long bike ride this morning, I needed a nap in my Mayan hammock! In the shade, I might add!

Yellow Mayan Hammock

yellowmayanThis morning on our walk, I saw a beautiful yellow Mayan hammock on the porch of a beautiful sage green house, trimmed in  white gingerbread trim. It was a beautiful picture-perfect setting, with bright purple pansies in pots all over the porch and down the sides of the stairs.

I wanted a picture so bad, but I didn’t want to be a stalker! There were people sitting at a cozy little round table sipping coffee or tea, and probably eating a delicious scone too! So I just took a picture with my mind…

Windy March

Wow, March has been a lion lately! So very windy! I do not care for wind. The only time I like it is when it blows all my leaves away in the fall.

If I had my Mayan hammock out in the tree, this wind would have it so tangled up and twisted! I suppose March is known for being windy, so I will wait until April to get my back yard ready for spring.

Looking For A Robin

Mayan hammockI love the day when I see the first robin each spring! I am expecting it any day now.

But I am always pushing the season at the end of winter. I tried, I really did, but I just have trouble liking winter! Now, I am just over it and ready to move on to getting my Mayan hammock in my favorite tree!

I love lobster rolls! There is a restaurant near our house that serves the best ones I have ever tasted! So, today for lunch, instead of eating in like always, we decided to go out for lunch. The weather is quite windy, so it is not the perfect beach day.

So, we had a delicious lunch and great family time. A great big order of calamari for the table, and a wonderful lobster roll I had. Now, I am laying, like a fat cat, in my cozy Mayan hammock. I may venture on the beach later, if the wind dies down. But I am in no hurry to move from this comfy spot!

Old Joe

I have a friend who is 86 years old. Of course, with the huge age difference, we disagree a lot. We laugh about it, but it makes hanging out a little difficult at times.

I just love laying in Joe’s hammock when my family visits him. Joe surprised me one day by getting me my own Mayan hammock! I was so surprised! So, even if we don’t agree on the same types of books, we can always agree that going out and reading in our hammocks is a great idea!

Beautiful Morning

What a beautiful crisp and clear morning I woke up to! I am so grateful! The birds were singing and the sun was shining. Days like is make me feel so happy. I enjoy the sounds of the different birds, but I don’t know what kinds of birds I am hearing unless I see them and they are in the dense maple leaves, so sometimes I hear them but don’t see them.

Maybe, when I am older and retired and have much more time, I will learn the birds by their songs. I will just lay around in my Mayan hammock under the tress and listen and observe. I will study one of the CDs that have the sounds of birds. Well, that isn’t going to be for some time…so for now, I will just enjoy the music!

Spring Has Sprung

Happy Spring! I have a group of girlfriends that I celebrate the new season with four times every year, being it Solstice or Equinox. Regardless, we call each other the Solstice Sisters. We always have lunch, exchange a small gift, then we usually end up at a winery for a tasting, then sitting around sipping wine, laughing, and talking.

 

These days are so good for the soul! I laughed so hard today, my abdomen hurt! We went to a wonderful Mexican restaurant for lunch, then to a winery far in the country. What a beautiful setting with the barn, which was the actual winery, against the fields, with flowering trees nearby. I got home an hour before dusk, and in the spirit of the day, I took a little siesta in my Mayan hammock, while recalling the fun events of the day!

I have been talking about beating the winter blues so much because I am really working at this too! Today, it was cold and rainy, so gray and dreary out there. I had a lunch date with some girlfriends. It was one of those days, you don’t even feel like driving, but just staying in. Of course, I couldn’t cancel, so I forced myself out with my raincoat.

We had a wonderful lunch at a cozy restaurant with a fireplace! Then, we went to a beautiful garden center, and browsed around through plants in bloom and lovely displays. What a wonderful way to beat the winter blues! I highly suggest it! I did not realize how great the flowers and plants would make me feel! I am now lounging around in my Mayan hammock, listening to the rain, and feeling peaceful.
