    Nice work.

    'Plant some sunflowers' is one of my goals on 43 Things.

    Not that my life has been sucked into an internet vortex or anything.

    I thought the only gardens that existed in AZ were rock gardens? icon_lol.gif

    I would imagine the extreme heat would kill a lot of plants.

    Not necessarily, if you don't mind potting plants, you can get some nice bulb action going. Once year (when I was very committed to it), I have a pretty nice bearded iris and tulip garden on the balcony of my apartment.

    Hooray for plants and gardening!

    I'm hoping to get some roses planted next winter.

    Today, the temperature was a sunny and warm 83°F.

    Our spring break for many will be here in 2 weeks.

    Now, is the best time to get out and enjoy the weather.

    My Grandfather and Father grew citrus here in the Valley.

    You can actually grow all kinds of crops. The soil

    needs to be worked...but that's a good thing right?

    Working with your hands and doing something productive

    can cure a lot of things....

    P.S. I do have a killer rock garden too...about 30 miles from me and made by good ole mother nature

    What will I do with these GIANT BEAUTIES once they are full and ready to be harvested??

    Well, I snip them off at the back of the stem. Then I will place them in this freeze dried machine and let them preserve nicely. Standing by I will have these cool wooden Shadow Boxes to place them in.

    I will keep a series of these framed pieces of "real art" and give the others away. They look good here in my ranch style home.....

    This was not Martha's idea either...lol

    HAHA, Bator's in AZ. I'm in Idaho. I sure as hell didn't plant anything. Its only been in the lat two days that the snow has melted off, and I still have to scrape my car windows in the morning.

    But I did spend three hours listening to a Russian jazz band tonight.

    glad SOMEONE thinks that we have it made in the US of A. americans are so quick to criticize themselves, that it borders on a national self-hatred. we certainly need to improve in many areas, but once in a while, let's just appreciate what we have that is positive, and how lucky we are to live here.

    What I did today was downplay the unnecessary garbage I allowed to bug me and enhance the good things that I experienced. icon_smile.gif

    Despite that some people in my office bitch about work stress, I'm glad I have a job.

    Even though I'm going back to school and currently taking chemistry as a prerequisite for nursing, I'm fighting through it even though I don’t have strong math and science skills.

    My boyfriend and I had a small argument today, yet I am glad we are mature adults and allowed ourselves time to recollect ourselves, communicate a compromise and clear hurt feelings.

    And lastly, even though the kids in the hospital emergency waiting room may be obnoxious at times, I'm glad I received a sweet thank you and a sweeter smile by volunteering my time for them.

    And I repeat this all again tomorrow. icon_biggrin.gif


    ...shoot me now; I can't keep this smile on.

    i ordered some microchip samples, wrote down some project notes, hopped in the hotel jacuzzi with some other gay guys just as they were deciding to leave and some very unattractive women saw me and came over and got in too. thankfully my bf arrived soon so the stoney silence wasn't horribly prolonged.

    after that we went down to ashworth ave in san juan for dinner, had a great authentic cultural dinner, then came back to the hotel for some play time.

    now, it's bed time icon_biggrin.gif as in go to sleep bed time. ;) tomorrow will be sit on an airplane for a few hours time.

    I planted sunflowers a few times. I liked to get the ones that would grow really big and tall. The seedheads would be the size of small dinner plates. They used to hang over squirrels would sit on the back and eat the seeds.
