It's Not About My Sadness...But the Promise Ahead


Hello!

Finally seeing the signs of Spring!!  I've been feeling really sad these past couple of days.  Adjusting to my new status in life isn't easy but I take each day one at a time.  But I think that my talks with the Man Upstairs are starting to bear fruit.  I'm learning that He has a plan for me and even though I may feel like I want to crawl under a rock, I must try not to focus on my sadness, but the Promise that He has and is working out for me.   Woke up this morning to this little Easter gift...




Slowly but surely, things are starting to calm down and I just submitted papers to do business here in NC.  Actually working to get my shop open again and all the work involved should keep me busy, much less time with my thoughts, and that's a good thing.  In the meantime, I'm off to tackle my backyard (yes, I have a backyard!!!) maybe try my hand at growing some flowers!!!

Time for Planting!


 
Hi everyone!

Going to try my hand at planting some flowers!

The ground here is...well...clay.  Thick, heavy clay and sand.  If I decided to go into pottery making all I have to do is go outside and dig up my backyard!  So in order to have any flowers, I have to make my own flowerbed.  Went and purchased some compost, soil and mulch, some edging, along with some lovely flowers. 


















I bought a whole flat of colorful snapdragons, as well as some geraniums, petunias, marigolds and a few daylilies.  Can't wait to get stuck into all that dirt!!!
