Climate Change and Home Improvement

....and the illigiteratti's sly sideways attacks on the Truth about what's happening. Truly, this is worth watching.

These are the sort of money's interests that will be telling lies to all of us so that we will become enraged and stop thinking.  Our need is to focus on the small blue dot on the edge of a galaxy out on the rim of the known universe - the little blue dot that we all call home.  I'm going to think of what's best for it, not for them.

They do this because they have stepped out of reality into a nether world only they, and their money, inhabit.  We can't let them have the real world back.  They have treated it, and all of us, very ill.

Now for real life..broom pushing and dusting...........

Since semi- Hyper activity has taken back over my life, I'm knitting away again, slowly, and tossing flotsam and jetsam from the sewing table.  I've bought a new and awesome organizer for threads, and plan more of them.  I'm clearing the ceramics work table, too.  I still go to my sister's house two days a week to help out since I've been given the green light for all activities.  So, in order to keep a 24-7 going with fitness, I started to walk 30 minutes a day when not weight lifting or otherwise engaged in "iron pumping" my way through a day. 

 My recent "dust up" with Fate has made me want things expedited in the garden, though I may not get to have the small patio, the walkway to the side garden/garage in this year.  But, if not, I'll just walk out there anyway.

 I plan to mark out and starting digging the foundation for the new raised bed.  I did it before and I can do it again, if that's what it takes.  My mother didn't raise me to not be a gardener.  I just read, probably in a cartoon, that "the time to plant a fruit tree was twenty years ago". So, I plan to mark out a place I want to plant butterfly bushes .

I have wanted Buddleia over there along that side since the elm trees were taken out around ten years ago.  So, I'll go get the bushes when they are available for best planting, but have the bed ready in the meantime.  I can't work fast but, since slow and steady wins the race, even for tortoises, I'll have the Buddleia over there, being beautiful, hopefully this coming fall, and just before the winter rains, or even sometime next Spring.  I just can't wait for cement work anymore.  Digging is fun for dogs, and humans love it, too.  Wolfie has his Saluki genes to explain his digging passion.  I have my Mother's gardening genes.

 Happiness is a do it yourself project!!


  1. I thought the Buddleias were lilacs at first.
    I was out doing potting stuff, which I probably shouldn't have, because of my back. But those poor things needed dirt, so I just moved slow, and it got done.

  2. Aren't they pretty?

    And, Slow and steady will win any race. :*) Gardening at the right pace is healthy sport! I share the back complaint, so understand about potting stuff. We need a wrap around potting bench with everything in bins beneath it, eh?
