Even though I used up fifty-four bags of mulch this month, I didn't get everything done that I wanted to. I didn't buy enough pea gravel, for one thing. Twenty-five fourteen pound bags sounds like a great deal, but it only covered one small area--I didn't get any of the pathways I wanted to create done. Three of my new lavender plants either didn't like my soil or just didn't like me and they've died. Stormy keeps piddling on one of the new lamium in the back, and it's not going to live much longer with that kind of treatment. The house is disgusting because I've spent all of my free time outside, and I'm roasting right now because I have a pact with myself not to turn the air-conditioning on until June.

Perhaps on a better day I will feel as if I accomplished a lot this weekend. Right now, I am just tired and sad about all that I didn't get done.

Stormdog needs a new hobby. I'm sure your garden will look beautiful. Lavender can be picky. I usually keep it in a pot.

It might make you laugh to know that right now Pooty is trying to eat corn on the cob.

Enough of that, young lady.

You did good.

I'll hear no more of this 'I didn't do enough' crap. Continue and there will be consequences.

Mulchaholicism is a serious problem.
