Sparking away

Thursday, March 07, 2013

I won't waste your time telling you of all the eating sins I have committed recently, but I am still sparking despite it all. I got a good workout in today. I'm thinking seriously about a Fitbit, but haven't made up my mind.

I got the roses planted and hopefully they will thrive. I covered the dirt around them with newspapers and mulch. Then it rained that night so I think they have a good start in life. I will water them again this weekend if it doesn't rain again. I am marking on the calendar when I water and when it rains to keep me aware of the fact that they may need some TLC while they are new to the area. I'm told that knockout roses bloom a lot and don't require too much TLC. That's good because I plant things and then wish them well. I am not good about constant care!

My son stayed home from school after vomiting. He slept the day away and ran a fever. I hope he will be better tomorrow. Not sure what could be wrong with him. He ate some grapes and then some casserole I made for supper. His spirits are up and he's playing X-Box now, so maybe he's on the mend.

Warm day today and sunny, but blustery too. Spring is on the way, y'all!

    I too plant and say I hope you make it! We have four homes and our yards have to be self sufficient. We only have time for mowing!

    I am so glad you continue to Spark even when the eating is always on track. I think that is key to being aware and to success!

    We can do this.

    Congrats on the job!

    I love growing roses! It is such a pleasure when they bloom. I hope your son is on the mend.

    There are some bad viruses out there. I picked up one when I was visiting my mom in hospital. 2 days later she got it at hospital and has been very sick. Last night my brother who is visiting got it. Hopefully my sons don't get it or my husband. If my niece gets on their way back to Alaska the whole plane will get it!

    I am the same kind of gardner- plant it and leave it

    Hope you stay well

    We live on opposite ends of the earth, but my 30 yr old son had exactly the same symptoms and it disappeared overnight. These new strains of virus are just too weird.

    Hope your son feels better and nice that you're already out there gardening. Too cold here still.
