Changing My Mindset

It feels good to be back catching up on my little space on the web. I spent lots of time today working in the yard. It's a mess! The harsh heat we had last week is hard on plants. All I could manage was to run out and throw some water on things.  Besides the heat, the mosquito population was out in full force.
Needless to say lots of heat and rain made the weeds grow like crazy.  I've not done pulling weeds in all of my beds, but I made a huge dent today. 
Along with the weeding I am trimming bushes and cleaning up plants. 
My veggie garden is pretty much non existent.  My parents are getting a few things.  I went over and picked some things.  Peppers, onions, peppers and green tomatoes.  So far all of the tomatoes are rotting as they ripen.  Sigh.  I stopped by the in-laws to drop some goodies off for them. 
Next on the list was mowing the law.  
School is creeping up on me.  I try to work on planning a little each day.  
I feel like I accomplished a good amount today.  As always there is always more to be done.  That is where my change of mindset comes into play.  I love to make to do list, yet I have a love/hate relationship with them.. Many times I feel like I haven't done enough when I have items left on my list.  

Yes, I know that is my issue.  The fix for is to a have  things done list.  That way when I get side tracked and complete things not on my list I can see all that I did accomplish instead of all the things I didn't complete. 
This is not my original idea.  I remember Laine mentioning doing this in one of her letters.  It's working well for me.  

Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations... keep moving forward, friends.


  1. Last week I was literally throwing water on plants because of the heat. Your tomato plants need calcium. Crush egg shells and put around your plants. You can buy calcium for tomatoes.

  2. I make a list of what I did because I was busy and accomplishing things that were not on the list. This way I felt better about the unfinished to-do list.

  3. I need to keep going today I feel like a slug. Not sluggy but a slug.

  4. I love this post. Thanks for sharing it.

    1. Which letter of Laine are you referring to?
