Spring plans...on a snowy day

February 20th, 2011 at 04:55 am

Had most of the seasons today...rain, snow and sun....quite a variety packed into a few hours....

I have a new quiz for my psychology class due every Saturday. So far I have gotten all A's on the quizzes- including today. This is a tough class, but I am learning SOOO much with all of the work we are assigned (it is an online class). I have a couple more quizzes, a team project and my final due...but I am well on track for an A still.

I scored at Kohls with a 30% off coupon...found some clearance jammies...normally $ them for $12. yay. My jammies are pretty much mismatched loose sweats and having a pretty, soft MATCHING set was a nice score. I love it when I can get a really good deal on something I really want. However, I have gotten pretty good at walking away from any bargain if it is not something I need or really, really want. On the heels of my big purchase Thursday (foot massager $199)...I need to walk away from the other stuff for a while. The massager should be here on Tuesday..very anxious to start using it!!!

Went shopping with my daughter today and she got some great deals...I didnt buy anything. We did eat lunch out...I spent $20, which gave our very attentive waitress a nice tip. Tonight I just had some pasta and sauce out of the cupboard for dinner.

Tomorrow I hope to make it to the garden store to pick up the things I will use to get my garden started this year. (Still have the $75 gift card from my job from last year when my mom died...-which was in leiu of flowers...) My zucchini did awesome last year...I hope to add tomatoes, artichoke, strawberries, watermellon, pumpkin, onions, raddishes, and maybe some lettuce this year. I will need some containers- last year something ate my watermellon plants down to the ground so I am hoping container gardening will help a little. ??? I am a newbie at this gardening stuff...but hope to learn a little more each year.

Plan to spend tomorrow NOT STUDYING or worrying about work stuff. Just enjoying the day.

    Ooh, the cusp of garden season! I'm getting excited. If you do artichokes, let us know how they come out. I tried them once, and they were a complete flop.

    Do you grow herbs? We've had great success with parsley, mint, basil, rosemary, sage, chives, etc. They freeze well, and they're SO expensive in the supermarket that I feel like I get a big bang for my buck.

    I put chicken wire up around our 8x8 garden to keep the bunnies out. It seems to work well, although they can jump in if really determined!
