Discipline - one of the meanings in my Large Print Dictionary is "self control."
At this time of life I seem to lack self control when it comes to purchasing books, plants, anything that has to do with gardening and nature. Also lack this quality when it comes to my camera and computer.
Guess this is better then what was - years ago.
Not quite as disciplined in some areas. When in the corporate world I loved pretty clothes,
shoes, wonderful cosmetics. These seemed to have been replaced by my old garden clothes,
sturdy shoes, and makeup you are long gone. Late life freedom is wonderful!!!!
Also not to disciplined when I entered the dating world. This was a new experience at age 42.
I made a trip to garden center yesterday. Purchased lime, fertilizer, mulch, potting soil, gravel and several ferns for screen porch. Unloaded when I returned home, trying to be so careful not to hurt myself. I want to return and buy a Red Twig Dogwood that I spotted. Yesterday did not want to spend the money - but I want it.
I was so tired last night with a slight back ache and vowed that today I would do inside chores and rest.
Still up before day light and light rain all night - I just came inside from spreading 40 lbs of lime. It is a good time with the light rain predicted all day. Next rain I can fertilize
Put on my old jacket, jeans and the plastic rain hat that was my mother's. In years past I thought this rain hat looked ridiculous. Have now changed my mind - I like it and really do not care what it looks like.
Returning home I spotted the first buttercups on the side of the road and the stream I pass over looked calmer after all the rains last week. Also passed about 50 turkeys that were grazing but I could not stop and get camera out fast enough to capture a picture.
Wherever you are have a wonderful weekend.
My special girl, enjoy Jamaica, son enjoy the time in Cambodia. This one will be in the woods!!!
