As everyone knows, Valentine's day is coming up and I wanted to say a few words. I have been fortunate enough to spend 15 of them, not only with the one I love, but with my best friend. Thank you Peter for being part of my journey through life. Not everyone gets to go through life with someone they love, and I'm forever grateful we found each other. We have been able to support each other through the years in many different ways, and I'm glad we have made it through the challenges life tends to through. I will always be by your side, and look forward to growing old with you until we have to leave this world behind. I love you Peter Dowell, and I'm glad to be your Valentine.
Testing out moble blogging
since I have some time going home from work I have decided to write a short blog post to test the ability to blog on a moble device.
So I have had a very long day at work today. There wasn't a lot of work today, and there is nothing worse than trying to find things to do, and there are only so many tutorials you can do. I'm hoping that we have a lot of work coming for tomorrow. Everything seems to be coming in big chunks. We will get a bunch of work and then nothing, and then the cycle starts again. At this point I can't wait until I can work in the yard this weekend. It helps so much with stress.
Spring Is Coming!
This weekend it was starting to feel a lot like spring, and thank goodness we were able to take advantage of it. Peter and I got our raised beds ready to start to grow veggies, we planted an apple tree and a pear tree, and we got some weeding done. I feel very accomplished. Here is a picture of the flower beds in front of the house. I'm very excited that things are coming up.
I can't wait to see the blooms. I got the bed most of the way cleaned up. After those flower bloom the California Poppies will come up along with the Alyssum. I love the purple and orange combination that we will have in that bed. The next project will be to start planting my rose garden. I will start that process next weekended depending on the weather. I'm going to transplant a few roses from another bed and we purchased a new rose as well. I plan to make a path that guides you through the garden leading back to a seating area. I think it will look very nice. I will post pictures as soon as I'm further along with the project. Maybe I can have a tea party when I get done with the project. I had a dream that I had a formal afternoon tea in that space. I think it would be fun. We could have cucumber sandwiches, and lovely little cakes. I seem to always have fantasies in my head. Would anyone like to have a rose garden tea party? Please let me know in the comments on this web page.
One last note. We are getting closer to being able to go back to Chicago to get the rest of our stuff! If everything goes good we will go this summer. We have made it over some major hurdles to get to this point, but we have been able to learn a few things along to way. Life is not always easy, but it is what you make of it. Learn from your mistakes, push on, and you will make your goals. We are making ours one day at a time, but we are getting there, and we are happy. Thank you for reading my post, and enjoy spring.
