I'm sick. Woke up this morning with some sort of stomach bug. What is so frustrating is the fact that it is going to be a sunny 71 degrees. For the past two days I have been outside in glorious weather tilling up soil, building gardening structures, etc. I actually have a bit of a tan. Today I was going to be at work and not home til after 2pm. I was still going to work outside as soon as I got home. Now every time I move around I am knocked down by a wave of nausea. As long as I sit or lay down I only have to deal with a crampy feeling. I prefer that to nausea. Shoot, I would rather have a baby with no pain killers than a stomach ailment. So here I sit...no plans to go outside even this afternoon. Bummer.
So since I can't go outside physically, I go out in my mind. No I am not transcending an astral plane. I am planning. Planning, planning, planning. So far I have decided to plant more bush beans with my blackberry bushes. I looked it up and they are friends. I have plans to add pumpkin and sunflowers. The sunflowers I hope will be a nice treat for my chick e dees. Plus I hope it will supplement their feed. That means I need to plant a lot of them to make it worth my while. It is mine (and my husbands) desire to have as much of the backyard planted as possible. Hubby would rather tend a garden than mow the grass. I need a big garden this year to make sure I have ample amounts put up for next year. I usually want about two years worth put up since some years gardens are better than others. We are digging up new ground this year. I can't wait for it to all be green and growing.
So anyway, I am off for now. Stay well!
