Y’all… this happens EVERY YEAR, and it’s embarrassing. And for some reason, it brings me joy to humiliate myself as often as possible here on the blog.
It doesn’t help that the grasshoppers have taken over a little, making us feel all downtrodden. I could come up with many excuses… truly.
But the main excuse is… we have more important things to do.
And when the minions are asleep, you can find us frolicking about in the garage, wielding power tools and paint brushes… and singing LOUDLY. Nick has the uncanny ability to switch songs in the middle of a word (which is not in the least bit annoying)… it’s like the lyrics remind him of another song, and he so smoothly transitions. Wow, I mean… it’s really special.
What I’m really trying to say here… is that the garden is not a priority. It’s not that we don’t have time, it’s just simply that other things are more important to us. When we get emails saying ‘WHERE DO YOU GET ALL YOUR TIME TO BE SO PRODUCTIVE?!’ The answer is simple… we enjoy family time, and being creative together as a couple… and that’s where we dedicate our time. At any given moment, you would probably find dishes in our sink and unfolded laundry in the dryer, and a garden that has yet to be weeded. But that’s how we like it. We feel fulfilled. We’re living the dream.
NOW, if only we could train this old boy to weed FOR us!
