A military spouse's take on blooming where you are planted. I continue to pretend I am living on my dream farm while in reality, I live on a military base, gardening in a plot alongside a Navy flightline, with half of my homesteading supplies perpetually packed in boxes and have a habit of being overly involved in every community we live in. I'm a busy mom to 2 boys and a spouse to a Navy sailor soon nearing retirement. I love this chaotic life wouldn't trade it for anything!

I sure do. After the last 7+ days of temps in the upper 30's and low 40's, rain, hail, and sleet - I woke up to temps of 60º at 7 am today, woohoo! You know where I'll be all day...

Why do the weeds seem to grow better then everything else??? I think you will be busy for a little while :)ReplyDelete
Weeds - the never ending story...ReplyDelete
No doubt about it. Those little bugger weeds will take over in short order if you don't keep on them. At least you have nice weather to work outside today. Imagine more sleet and rain and looking out at the weeds growing, growing, growing!ReplyDelete
It's a rainy day here today. Have fun pulling those weeds. You could have a nice dandelion, chickweed salad.ReplyDelete
I love pulling weeds! Especially after a rainy day. When you get the entire root and that sucker just slides out....ahhh! how satisfying! Have fun!ReplyDelete
No thank you. I do not like that job.ReplyDelete
I don't mind pulling em'---we've got sand and they just pull right out no problem. Ya know, if there's not SNOW on the ground. Which there is. Rats!ReplyDelete
I must be tired of this endless winter -- I'm even envious of your weeds!ReplyDelete
Well I hope there is beautiful weather and WEEDS in everyone's future LOL!ReplyDelete
And SUE! I know I can't leave a comment on your blog, but I want to tell you what a beautiful post you just wrote... the thanks we get from everyday "regular" folks like you are why make the financial sacrifices and endure being separated from family... your words are truly special, and thank YOU!
(and yes I agree, how messed up is that salary?!)
Sue - (See we get to you one way or another!) Shall we even get into the grossly overpaid athletes we set up as models for our children. The same athletes who don't seem to exhibit one bit of moral fiber as they rape, murder and steal because of their sense of entitlement? Sorry, you pushed one of my buttons.ReplyDelete
Thanks you two! Such sweeties you are!!ReplyDelete
And yes, Mama Pea, after I posted that, hubby did mention athletes. And CEO's of mega corporations........oh , the list is long, very very long.
Boy....anger issues I have. Must get back into the garden---an oasis of calm. Ohm......ohm.....
