This morning my feet are muddy, my hands smell like chives and I’ve never been happier. I made a phone call the other day and volunteered to help out at Riverside Garden’s. Here in Monticello, Riverside
Gardens is the most beautiful place you will find. There’s a
pond with geese and a trail that goes around it, a gazebo and the most amazing tree’s and gardens you have ever seen. My family spends a lot of time at the Garden’s which is also a city park. We fish there, walk the trail and look at all of the beautiful gardens. When I volunteered my time I figured they would have me pull weeds or do something not so important. But the opposite happened; they gave me my own garden! (What the hell were they thinking?!)
And it’s the most amazing garden plot you have ever seen, it has
a brick wall behind it and a brick trail running through the center. Right now it’s an herb garden but most of the herbs will be moved to another area and the rest is up to me. Some of the gardeners are doing themes like one garden will be all pink and another has a fake riverbed running through it so I had to come up with something specular so I decided to do a fairy garden. I want to tuck little fairy houses under the plants and make tiny tile pathways. The kids have also agreed to help me with this project and this summer and I’m sure we will be spending plenty of time there.
So if you know of any websites, stores, accessories or amazing
flowers for a fairy garden please let me know. There are MASTER gardeners with their own gardens at Riverside Gardens so I’ve got some tough competition. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Sometimes I’ll get on a roll complaining about certain things but
I typically try to restrain myself and I don’t say everything the way it’s
traveling through my head as some people might find my “true” thoughts and use of words offensive. But I found the ultimate ranting website, http://screwyoupal.net/ here you can let it all hang out and tell it like it is. From your bad Wal-Mart experiences to what you’d like to say to your boss or the guy that just cut you off on the highway. Finally a place where you can tell it like it is without having to worry about the kids hearing you or getting fired or divorced, it’s completely anonymous. And if you have nothing to say that’s okay too because there is plenty of good reading.
Today I have to meet with a teacher at my daughter’s school
regarding an advanced learning program that she will get moved into next year. Achieving high test scores and advanced reading levels have shown the teachers that she is advanced for her age. This is great and wonderful and I look forward to helping her all I can with this move.
But when the teacher called me today she chewed me out because
the school does not have a working home phone number on file for us. Months ago I had our landline disconnected and failed to give our cell numbers to the school. But, for my defense the school has called me on a few occasion’s so they must have gotten my cell number somewhere. And she called me today so where did she get my number? So today when I meet with her regarding how smart my daughter is, we have to fix the information on file because of how stupid I am. It should
be an interesting meeting.
Have a stellar day passengers!
