Trouble Not Spending Money!
I am frugal in many other areas...
but this area is a major weakness
it's really not a bad thing
I could be a compulsive gambler...
and have nothing to show for my money.
Flowers woo and charm me
and it's easy to see why...
when I look at these cheery blooms
I see Mother Nature smiling.
pretty and drought tolerant
in yellow and fuchsia
a planter of all white flowers
silvery dusty miller
petunias and bacopa
all from the Garden Center.
I also attended a hardy plant sale
put on by a group of master gardener's.
It was a cash only sale
I went without checking the money that I had in my wallet
I'd forgotten that I had spent some already
what did I do?
I spent all of the cash on hand right down to a few red cents...
can you imagine just how annoying it was for the people in line up behind me?
Surprisingly they seemed to take it in their stride and made comments about how we gardener's are a frugal lot
and wasn't I clever to limit my spending
one $20 bill and the rest in...
loonies, toonies and small coins!
which I will plant together
a lovely and interesting bloomer.
I have been planting and potting these up
my hands are filthy even with garden gloves
they have a few holes
(I'll be adding them to my list of things to buy)
but it has been a fabulous sunny weekend to play in the dirt!
Pictures will be shared in a future post
It's time to make dinner
and I am feeling fatigued
I am simply opening a jar
Stonewall Kitchen's Traditional Marinara sauce and serving it with pasta.
I know to listen to my body
and it's OK not to make everything from scratch!
Next on the agenda...
Hope that you had a fun weekend!
