Make-A-List Monday: Recovered!

Three days in bed with a heating pad and taking it easy made it me seriously stir-crazy.

But I'm back and getting things done. Sort of.

This week, I'm going to:

  • Finish up my Autumn Shortcake - blocks are done - just need to lay it out and sew it together
  • Cut all my tulip stems and leaves - the HRTs really need my concentration
  • Prep all the stuff I want to cut this weekend - and it's a lot!
That's my sewing list. My gardening list? Interested? Here it is:
  • Move rhododendron plant to backyard
  • Plant hydrangeas in front yard
  • Plant strawberries in pots (because my beds aren't done yet)
  • Plant two peach trees (my fruit tree count is currently at 13 now!)
  • Plant dahlia bulbs
  • Finish those raised beds!
I detest a picture-less blog post, so here's some fun. Color inspiration anyone?

I'm partial to the yellow hyacinths. I need some of those in my garden!


  1. Glad your back is on the mend. But don't forget it's easy to over-do!!! I have back problems, too, and am learning that lesson the hard way . . . .

  2. The macaroons remind me of an episode of Master Chef Jr. The kids had to make a box of 6 (I think) and some of them did GREAT (others not so much). Amazes me how well those little kids can cook (and TALK cooking). Glad you're feeling better.
