Springing along April 27, 2009

Well, it has been a while since I have had time to tend this little blog. I wish I could tell you all that I have been feeding my creative spirit all this time but unfortunately that has not been the case. Although I did take my punch needle class out at Country Sampler last week. Of course I haven’t worked on it a minute since I left the building.
So what have I been doing all this time? Well my front flowers did finally get their much needed cleaning. I cleared all the straw out and all the last little bits of mulch that I could. It was just in the nick of time too. The spring rains that have moved in have really brought my perennials up. My husband took me down to the compost site and ever so graciously filled the truck bed with the “black gold”. Then he came home and helped me spread it all around where I want the new garden to go. I did help with my OES chapter dinner. I was supposed to be more active in the planning but I guess I wasn’t needed so that didn’t happen. It has been a sore subject for the last 2 weeks in my house and I am glad it is over! So that is all I will be saying about that one.
Creatively though I did manage to get my mail art done. Of course it is still waiting patiently to be mailed. Sorry I haven’t sent it yet Melanie!! It is going to Canada so I need to go have it weighed at the post station so that it actually makes it there. I will put that first on my list of to-do things once I leave this house today. Then I’m off to run the remaining errands. Is there ever an end to them? I feel that is all I do some weeks. Run here then run there. Maybe I have been slacking on my time management skills. This week I am going to try and do better though. I won’t be getting pulled in so many directions and I am going to definitely take some time for me. I need to feed that creative side of my brain a bit more than I have been. So hopefully in my next post I can show something…maybe I will finish one of those UFO’s that are sitting there staring at me.
