Busy doing nothing

Hello. Do you ever have one of those days when you think you have been busy but don't seem to have achieved very much?  I don't know where the day has gone. I was up early enough, 7.00am, I gathered some things together to give to Janet for her stall at the car boot sale. That's more clutter out of the house. There was a lovely teapot, she sold it for £5. I've had that teapot for forty years, never brewed tea in it, I don't drink tea, I don't like it, except when someone gives me a cup, ha ha. 
I started cutting these hearts out this morning, it's taken me all day to cut out 32, that's in between doing other things as well. The front hedge is growing too tall so I went out and chopped some off. That took over an hour. Then I went in the back garden and re potted some plants which were too big for their pots. Then I pulled some weeds up. Flippin weeds, you pull them up and they just come back again. Fed up of weeding. The brown bin is full, such a lot of garden waste at this time of year, some of it will have to go in the grey bin. Once a fortnight to collect garden waste in the summer is not enough, especially with a big garden. 
Two dog walks, post some photo's on Down the Lane forum, beans on toast for lunch, steamed vegetables and a piece of quiche for dinner. Cats wanting feeding, meowing, gimmee food slave. 
I'm going to lie down in a darkened room. Toodle pip and Goodnight.

  7. I think you got quite a lot done. If one works in the garden and accomplishes a few things that is huge to me as it is something I don't get around to doing as nearly as I ought to.

  8. HI.It's so funny,you are going to a darkened room and I have just come from one.We"ve had a power outage for several hours here and Sadie(our mini-schnauzer) and I were getting drowsy from the heat.We both had a quiet rest and are refreshed now.I forgot to mention the other day that your utility bills are still amazing me.As I've mentioned,our costs for a month( or so) are what you pay for the YEAR.Well done,you!Even though we try to slash our consumption and expenses the delivery fees and price hikes here in Ontario just keep going up.It is something that is a challenge to balance but we do try.Our climate extremes make for usage spikes summer and winter.The two of us use energy so we must pay for it,that's reality. I always feel like I'm on patrol.My hubby thinks I'm a bear re:water and electric usage.Ha,ha.I'm taking that as a compliment.One of your "not getting much done days"Ilona could be considered by some as a full one.You have boundless energy and enthusiasm,and don't behave like a "senior" at all. So inspiring.Your latest picture of hearts is lovely,are you keeping the frame natural or painting it for a pop of colour?How's the textile landscape, did I miss it's completion?I love that piece. Warmest regards,D.

  9. Most of our garden wast goes into the compost pill. We just are starting a new garden on the side of the house and tilling in our compost. Thankfully my son is doing the heavy lifting.
