Friday night repeated on Monday night at Aimee's...
Wow, I really must be tired! I just fell asleep while waiting for my blog to load (slooow dial-up). At least this time I had the foresight to put my laptop down on the coffee table/chest first; in the past I've been known to fall asleep with it on me and that can be a bit scary when you awaken to it laying at a precarious angle.
Now you'd think this falling asleep while web surfing could be a 'sign' that just maybe I should be going to bed when most Americans do---alas no; that would be way too logical.. In my Aimee way of thinking, I consider this to be a 'sign' that I 'need' high speed not an earlier bedtime and besides I’ve always loved the silence of the nights.
Today (Friday) my garden expert, AKA best friend, came over to inspect our million weeds and see if there was any hope that someday this land could look the way I want it to. The verdict after the
weed garden inspection: despite the fact that it will take many, many long hours of hard, back-breaking toil under the sun, clouds and rain of the NW and a bit (lot) of money--there is hope, a small glimmer of hope for our land.
In addition to her thousand and one good qualities, my best friend is good at giving me hope...
So what is Aimee dreaming of besides a trip to the Rockies, a cabin in the woods, a faster surfing experience and a dark chocolate raspberry bar? Well, you'll have to wait for the answer in another post...it's that time again and I am feeling a bit---AKA whole bunch--tired
(and the laptop is on my lap this time and NOT the coffee table)
Aimee gardening verses--I am thinking the first two will be my 'before' verses and the last two my 'after' ones with God's help. Oh and I don't have a stone wall but some of the Japanese garden lanterns/statues were looking mighty sad :)
“I went by the field of the slothful…And, lo, it was all grown over with thorns, and nettles had covered the face thereof, and the stone wall thereof was broken down.”
Proverbs 24:30, 31 KJV
