Oops! I Did It Again!

All I wanted to do yesterday was plant the 120 gladiolas that I bought, and maybe temporarily place the two citrus trees that I bought. I started digging up about a foot long section of lawn along the back fence. My plan was to dig up just enough of the lawn to fit the gladiolas and that was it. I wasn’t going to take on too much and commit to too much. After twenty minutes of fighting with two feet of lawn, I said NOPE! I then asked hubby to rent a sod cutter and cut the whole lawn out.  Two hours later I am left with a mud pit, a pile of lawn in the side yard, and a big fat clock ticking away the 9 weeks until Easter. Now I will say, there is a good chance I will be asking you guys for some advice, so whether you like it or not, I am dragging you all along for the ride. As you can see from the pictures below I had just mowed the lawn. It looks nice, but it’s actually a swampy mess and very boring. The last picture is my new and improved mud pit!

Genre: Romance

Rosemary is determined to make it through a year in Juniper Ridge without forming any ties there. Harrison is determined to change her mind.

Rosemary Keogh considers herself pretty adaptable — she dealt with her father’s death-bed edict that she move across the country to work at his latest hotel. She hadn’t bitten the head off of any of her five unexpected half-sisters, had she? And she’s been pleasant about it. Mostly. She settled into the routine, even grew to like most of them, but when tragedy leaves her birth daughter parentless — and she is named guardian — her world spins again. Trying to raise a nine-year-old who shares her spunk and determination isn’t always an easy thing.

Adding to the confusion, Harrison Forest, head of the resort’s human resources department, decides it’s time to shift their relationship from semi-adversarial to something a whole lot more pleasant. They had briefly met years earlier, and though they had started off on the wrong foot, he hadn’t been able to forget her.

When Rosemary starts having mysterious ‘accidents,’ though, her worries shift from being a bad mother to leaving her daughter an orphan yet again. Can they get past the roadblocks she’s been throwing between herself and Harrison to make things work? More importantly, will she survive that long?

Enemy at the Gates: The Battle for Stalingrad by William Craig

A New York Times bestseller that brings to life one of the bloodiest battles of World War II — and the beginning of the end of the Third Reich.

Enemy at the Gates: The Battle for Stalingrad
by William Craig
4.5 Stars (407 Reviews)
Genre: History

On August 5, 1942, giant pillars of dust rose over the Russian steppe, marking the advance of the 6th Army, an elite German combat unit dispatched by Hitler to capture the industrial city of Stalingrad and press on to the oil fields of Azerbaijan. The Germans were supremely confident; in three years, they had not suffered a single defeat.The Luftwaffe had already bombed the city into ruins. German soldiers hoped to complete their mission and be home in time for Christmas.

The siege of Stalingrad lasted five months, one week, and three days. Nearly two million men and women died, and the 6th Army was completely destroyed. Considered by many historians to be the turning point of World War II in Europe, the Soviet Army’s victory foreshadowed Hitler’s downfall and the rise of a communist superpower.

Bestselling author William Craig spent five years researching this epic clash of military titans, traveling to three continents in order to review documents and interview hundreds of survivors. Enemy at the Gates is the enthralling result: the definitive account of one of the most important battles in world history. It became a New York Times bestseller and was also the inspiration for the 2001 film of the same name, starring Joseph Fiennes and Jude Law.

Slowly Bit By Bit

Piece by piece my garden is revealing itself in my head. I am curious to see what my brain comes up with as the final product. So far I have one long waving flowerbed along the back fence with two citrus trees and a few purple companion plants around the bottom of the trees. between the two trees I will finally be able to use the old garden gate that I had bought about 15 years ago, but stuffed in a corner because I had no place to put it. If the rain stays away long enough today I will carve out the border of the bed and try to take out a bit of lawn. There is a lot of lawn and I really don’t want to pay for a bin, so I am going to have to put it in the yard waste can a little at a time. I figure since the ideas are coming in slow I might as well work slow. Pictures will be coming.
