Tired I am - sorely tired!

Ha - not working doesn't mean not working! Whew - In the last eight weeks I have done so much that at night I am exhausted - but very satisfied. My garden never look lovelier & my house - well it still can use a once over - but it will do! I am in the groove of thrift store visits big time - found some wonderful stuff - lots just added to my Etsy shop - now it's off to fill my Ebay store. Wish me luck

"For beautiful eyes, look for good in others;
for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness;
and for poise, walk with knowledge that you are never alone."

Busy As a Bee....

I have not stopped working since I stopped working!!!! My house is CLEAN - my living room & dinning room floors are re-finished, my kitchen has a new floor, the tiles in the bathroom have been re-grouted, the house has been power-washed, the gardens planted & mulched - all done by MOI - yes even the floors!!! WOW - I never realized how much I wasn't getting done!!!! Wonderful feeling - but boy am I tired!!!!

Worms Eat My Garbage

Ok - so my dirty little secret is out - I admit it - I have worms. Red Wigglers - two pounds of them to be exact. They live on my deck in their own little worm farm and they dine on my garbage everyday! After a few attempts and some false starts - it looks like this time around it's going to work! I purchased the "farm" and two pounds of worms from The Worm Woman and already harvested some worm tea. Yes it' sounds strange - but it's environmentally friendly, good for my plants & just plain fun!!!

OH MY!!!! Almost a month!

Since I last posted. Wow! Things have come together for me - house is clean - almost! Yard is shaping up - the place in Maine is livable - I feel good. I have things going well at home - I finally realized what this whole housewife thing is all about & how it works. Man goes off to work - woman stays home & keeps house - yes it works. I almost want to regret the past 20+ years. If we only didn't do what we did with the $ thing - things could have been so different for me. So it goes - I can't think like that or else it will eat me alive. I am going to try to make up for lost time. I just came to this conclusion now as I write this - sheesh I didn't even know I felt this way. Thanks Rich.
