How to Beat Winter Blah's
Hi I know it has been awhile but it took me a bit to get used to being at work again. I am half way through the 3rd week of training (there are 7+ weeks) and I think I am finally getting it. When the traning is done I will be one of the friendly voices that answers calls for a major credit card company, not the nasty one that calls to tell you that you did not pay. I actually wonder how those people do it, that has got to be very stressful.

A week and a half into training I managed to catch a flu bug and had to drag myself to work Thursday and Friday, spent all weekend on the couch or in bed, repeated the drag myself to work again Monday and Tuesday. Very happy to report though I feel much better today.

When I got home yesterday I was so tired and kind of blue, however when I went to the mailbox I discovered 3 seed catalogs. Oh Joy, I took a big mug of green tea with me into my bed and looked through them all and for about the millionth time re-planned my gardens. Now that has got to be a very timely mail delivery. The blues dissolved as soon as I seen them.

I had a birthday at the beginning of February and my girlfriend made me sign for my garden with her new woodburning tool. Photo to follow shortly, I promise.

Oh here is something that is going to undermine my paycheque come the spring. Right behind where I work is my favorite nursery. This is where I bought all those wonderful lilies last summer as well as a many other plants. I will probably be very happy that my lunch is only a half an hour and that some of my shifts will be 2pm to 11pm.

I was a what?

You Were an Eagle

You are able to rise above the details of life and see the big picture.

A spiritual being, you tend to go beyond material concerns.

Seed Catalogs

Yahoo! I finally received the seed catalog that I ordered eons ago and must admit that even though it is interesting I am a little disappointed with the quality of the pictures.

Don't get me wrong I have already looked through it twice and it only got here Wednesday afternoon, the problem started when I got tired of waiting for it. On Wednesday morning I was wanting a seed catalog so bad that I went in search for Vesey's. Not only did I order a catalog from them I spent the majority of the day on the internet looking at everything the have to offer while I made bread. I have been reading about Vesey's on various blogs but you know how it is somethings take awhile to sink in and then bamm you can't believe you didn't check it out sooner. I am hoping the catalog will be as fun as their site.

I also ordered another seed catalog but can't remember from where.

We have been having whacky weather it was so nice here yesterday I had all the windows opened while I cleaned the house. While doing that I had to keep telling myself that this is still February and not time yet for me to go and start messing around in the yard.

I see why now everyone orders the seed catalogs early, I am sure it will help take the "I want to garden NOW feeling" down to a less stressful state once they get here and I can go through them and plot and plan what to order and where to plant.
