So I want show you what I have done so far with my first year of working with a garden in the ground.
Everything I have ever grown have been in pots or containers like this lovely shamrock that I have had for over a year. I’ve had a wonderful amount of plants over the years but I’ve not have a garden till this year.
Moxie always loves it when I go out to weed and check on my garden that I have planted.
She loves to hide in the among the onions hunting bugs while I dig around. Here is where I planted the peas a month ago along with the carrots and beets.
This was my planting of Carrots … they didn’t all come up but they are doing okay the ones that survived.
My beets I started as well in my own make shift starter cardboard tray.
Anyway I am going to post some more photos of the cucumbers, bok choy, turnips, beets, and whatever else I am forgetting. Honestly I am thinking of going back to school to study horticulture because of how naturally it comes to me. It would allow me to study and work on things I have a talent for. I have to consider several things like the cost of it and where I would qualify to attend but I think that this is something that I need to look into. The cost is really something I am worried about because of how much college seems like it has diminishing returns like buying a new car. But after working several years in simple office grinding environments I feel like I am not getting healthy and after suffering 2 different cancers, obesity, arthritis, pre-diabetic, anemia, so something has to give. My skills at research, calculation, my love of watching and studying growth around me and the ability to communicate well needs a new avenue. Being without work currently is giving me the opportunity to work on things that will be best for me and how I can better effect the world around me in a better way. I hope everyone can spend time to know themselves and enjoy life.
Yup I took a bunch of photos of myself and I am sharing them…
I think we have all done this…
This is me happy and done with the week.. almost.
What do you think Moxie?
My cat is not impressed with my selfies.. everyone is a critic.
It’s the end of the usual work week but I have another day ahead of me with my Tuesday through Saturday shift and I like it. Saturdays are always a bit more relaxed and the crew is smaller and closer to each other. But Friday is a special place in our western world with movies, books, songs, and restaurants dedicated to our Friday culture. It is one of only 3 days in the week that is not a duplicate letter starter like Tuesday and Thursday or Saturday and Sunday.
It is special and even if it is not the end of the week for some like me it is still no fool and about it’s significance. Banks close all financial postings at the end of this day and every transaction we make this day until Monday is in limbo free falling through the weekend. Friday is the gateway to a different type of business for restaurants, entertainment, food shopping, indulgent is the name of the game for weekend and Friday is our signal for that.
All serious business matters have to be concluded on Friday so there is much pressure to get it done because in some way if you don’t get it done you’ve failed a bit. It can be a no mans land trying to get anything official done because people leave early to start their weekends and I know my work half of the departments close shop early. Emergencies that roll in are subject to a critical time crunch and it can be difficult to say the least.
Friday is a complicated day of the week because it marks the start of freedom but also the last day anyone can get most business done. Friday pulls it off with grace and style feeling both casual and professional in its skills at getting the task at hand done. It is the best of the work days because the pressure is sliding off of everyone and when things feel their time crunch people seems to come together more on a Friday and so you see more professionalism on Fridays.
So on this the last Friday of the month I bid you all Aloha as it is Aloha Friday!
Nine days to go for my first 5K run/walk and I am honestly scared. I went to my doctor today and hey says I will be just fine as long as I keep up on my alive regiment when I am walking. My work was good today and I am happy for what I do but it is a great deal of pressure some times. Home life has been better but I think that may resolve its’ self soon and like all homes maintenance is necessary. Racing to the end of the week is sometimes not the best and sometimes we just have to focus on the long way through the week. I want to watch some Doctor Who and take a good long hot bath tonight.
