On Monday I started work in the garden again. I am determined to get some of it going this year. Well I proceeded plant those primroses but as you can see this planter needs way more plants in it.
I have Sarah digging up rocks for me. This is the pile she got out. These are mostly slate like rocks and I am going to make a rock wall with them.
There are also tons of little lava rocks that need to be hauled away. I must have hauled 5 or 6 wheel barrow full of stuff in the last 2 years. There is still a lot to go though. I am hoping to at least get part of this going so I can sit out there and enjoy it.
Then I stepped on a board. The rusty screw went right through my Birkenstock's. I couldn't remember when I last had a tetanus shot. My Dr. had no record, so I called the emergency places and still no record. So I went to the doctors today to get one.
Yesterday I stopped to get some beading wire to work on my charms and when I wrote a check the lady told me that my license had expired. I couldn't believe it, but it had. I have been driving illegally for a month. So then it was on to the Drivers license place to get a new one.
Today I realized the charms I am making are not going to work. Boo hoo. I was using Mexican red clay that air dries and painting it with lumiere, but they seem to easy to break so I will have to make something else. I would love to do some of the collaged pieces with glass. Of course then I'd have to get that solder gun, some glass and have time to learn how to do them. Maybe next time. Then I thought oh I'll do something beaded, I have lots of beads. Of course I do not have 15 of anything. It is so frustrating when you have all this stuff but still you do not have what you need. GRRR... I did go to the craft store today and I have a couple ideas now. So its back to the studio to see which will work best.
