Angelique tulips!!


I have not had much experience with gardening till I bought this land and started giving it a try. Things I have learned,

Don’t take clumps of flowers from anyone unless they are good with weeding. My mother in law has given me lots of plants and while I appreciate it I also have learned with flowers come weeds!! I have two different kinds that came from her garden that have totally taken over!!!

Don’t make multiple gardens unless you are prepared to take care of them all!!!

Use lots of mulch!

Starting from seeds is hard, bulbs on the other hand are pretty simple

Diaper rose


Started with the diapers, putting a corner up and a piece of tulle in front, keep putting diapers around till you can’t hold anymore, then put an elastic.
Once you have a nice looking center with the corners up and tulle showing for color, put on a bigger elastic or type with string.
Pull out the tulle to a long piece, it sticks to the diapers, with another on top, then place your center on , holding the piece of tulle and roll, then the tight.
Do as many lines as diapers as you need.
I placed it inside the nursing pillow and folded down the outside edge.

Like the New England weather


Sitting here I see it’s snowing, April 17 and it’s snowing. It doesn’t last long and the next thing you know the sun is out, but look out back and the clouds are black as night. The instant change , the difference so close but yet just a turn and it’s different again.

This is me, on one side I am bright and sunny, eager to live, wanting to get out and be in life, be healthy and active, but I don’t , I sit and watch, not sunny but not raining or snowing, just being. I want to start living life instead of just surviving.

I can do that easily enough when my husband is home but he works long hours and then has to sleep, so it’s not always possible for him to be with me. I have few friends and they are like I have been, stay home and watch life passing by. I don’t want to do that anymore, I need to be active and healthy, I want too, but how ?

Join a club, volunteer some place, meet new people, easier said than done.

So I sit, as it’s sunny and bright out one door but gloomy and cloudy out another, yet still, raining on one side.

Just mine, Gone!


I use Cricut design space for my Cricut explore air 2. For those who don’t know , it’s a cutting machine, paper, vinyl, card stock, I even cut a heavy plastic, although it took a few times to do. Awhile ago I noticed all my projects disappeared. They have my uploaded stuff, the completed projects on my profile page, all of it except my projects I designed to make. Instead were theses Christmas trees, over 4,000 tree projects!

Seee?

Any device I use, everything saved into the cloud or on any devices, gone. I have a project for my mother I wanted to make to give her at my dads service the end of the month. I have spent hours doing different fonts so it will look right on the box , be read easy enough, etc, etc,

This is an image of what I’m trying to do.

Anyway, they said that somehow, just me and my profile got a bug. A bug, that only effected me, ??.? I can’t figure out how or why . I don’t dare to use it. I’m waiting for them to figure out what and how this happened.

They say if it’s in the Cloud it’s safe??
