Indoor Outdoor Gardening

Is it bad to spend the day in your jammies?
I did get stuff done NO really I did.


Got my squash and tomatoes potted up.




The bird baths are topped lots of dispensed seeds raked up.


My lovely little ground irises. Hey Sio @ Mom in Progress  want some??  I grow a lot of irises in honour of my Mom in Law whose name was --- you guessed it Iris

Lilacs are starting to burst forth



Muscari nestled in amongst the irises



My little troll is ready with his watering can.

A sweet centerpiece for our deck table.

W T F

So where did that come from?????
I had so many plans for this week..
Lunches
Baking Macarons
Lots of Yard work
And the most disappointing ..
Spending a couple days with Miss D

Instead I spent 2 days
Hunkered down in my bed with the occasional trip to the bathroom
Its really too bad we cannot train our pussy cats to make a cuppa tea

Hi Mama

My two G Kidds in Alberta are in Daycare right now.
Its called Brightpath ..
Every day or so I get an email from their daycare with
"Look what I'm up to" and pics of some of the activities they are doing.






It makes me smile and also feel like part of their day.
A few months back the Ipad they use was broken so we weren't getting updates and I really missed it.
Thank goodness they have recently got a new one and now they are back!!




I don't know if this is part of their daycare program or if all daycares do it.
I am just happy that I can be a part of it.




Next year they are in school so I will miss these little daily updates

Thinking of my Momma

 
My Momma
It has been 47 years but I think of her every day.
She loved being a momma and
 would have loved being a G Ma as much as I do.
I have always believed altho I only had her for 12 short years
she has influenced the kind of person I have become.
I think she would have been proud of who I am
and the life I have chosen.
 
Sending all you Mommas , fur baby Mommas too, lots of HUGS.....

Thursday in the Garden

What a loverly day...
Sun was shining and it was w a r m
I spent the morning in the yard.
 
 
 Planted some peas and spinach and
got some of the twigs from plants cut back.
I also put out the hummer feeders.
Hummingbirds have been spotted just south of us in Toronto.


I also took the time to sit on the patio and enjoy the goings on .


Got myself a garden journal for 2016.


I like to keep track of how my lil darlins are doing --- any new plantings -- new tips and tricks I pick up --- what the weather is like ---



Hope y'all had a great Thursday....

Blogger's Block

Anyone else out there experience this Blogger's Block.
It's not that I am not doing things still .. cooking, baking, knitting, visiting, ..
that may warrant a blog or two or three or ten.
I just cannot seem to sit still long enough for my brain to calm down ..
 collect its thoughts..
and type something out.

I have even been hard time posting to Instagram (@zazanona)
 altho the last day or so I have posted there.

I am hoping now that the weather is finally turning Spring
 like I may feel more inspired
Our weekend was fabulous -- altho there was a lot of sitting and not a lot of yard work.

HB is heading to Costa Rica on a birding excursion so I am on my own for 10 days..
Before anyone thinks I am N U T S for not going ..... He and his BB (birding buddy) are spending the time at an eco lodge which is not my cuppa tea. And this is a wee gift to HB as he is trying to get to 1000 birds seen in his lifetime. No No he isn't dying or anything its just one more step. We have been to C R twice before but it was mainly a "sit on the beach" holiday with a day or two of birding. So this time he and BB are doing an intense 10 day venture.


Well I guess I have kinda broken the block.
Let me know if you have ever had Blogger's Block and what did you do the break it
