So, I’ve listened, reflected, decided.
2014 will be the Year of the Garden.
There will be minor goals throughout the year. And I will continue my journey to healthy and organised living and gorgeousness by exercising, decluttering, eating well, sleeping,
maybe definitely even doing my tax.
But my main goal will be getting the garden to look gorgeous.
This goal is scarier than not shopping! See, not doing something is easy. But getting off my backside, fitting something into my day/week, and doing it repeatedly…. Gardens need consistency. A gardening binge then nothing for months and months just doesn’t cut it. Poor plants. They want some regular loving.
Unless you are this:
How will I get this under control?
I will set little tasks every weekend and once during the working week for my sons and me.
When I have got it to a level that it is not embarrassing I will hire a landscaper. Much like tidying up before a cleaner comes!
I will also get a gardener to do regular maintenance.
It’s a big task – my block is a traditional quarter acre. But not being one for self-flagellation, I am focussing on two areas – around the pool and the front yard.
It will make such a difference to my emotional well-being and lifestyle.
I am so excited! But nervous. There’s much to be done.
Stay tuned for photos. Real ones! Of my garden of good and evil. Not
stolen borrowed photos from the net.
