Among my many talents, I can now say I have a knack for gardening as well.

Call it a green thumb, I don’t mind. All I know is I look uber cute with a little mulch on my face.

I planted flowers for, like, 45 minutes this weekend. Did I know how to do so going into it? Not at all. But something about the flowers, dirt, & bugs just awakened my soul. I just instinctively knew how to dig a hole.

Maybe all those kindergarten recesses spent eating worms to try & impress the boysΒ finally paid off.

    Bless your heart, you’ve obviously never had a deer come along and eat your hard work and money… I hope that never happens to you, but I’m sure if it does you will get over it with another batch of these pancakes! πŸ˜‰

      Hahahaha hasn’t happened yet, but not totally unlikely. Deer are just roaming through the neighborhoods. Maybe I’ll just put a pancake in the flower bed to distract them. πŸ˜‰

        Too funny! Yesterday, we got home earlier than usual and our pet deer was laying up against the house by the front steps. She’s our guard deer. I bet she was like “why are my bitches home so early?!?!” She got up and ran off. She eats snacks before laying down…. grrrr! Bed & Breakfast anyone?
