Gardening and Cleaning

June 10th, 2014

I don’t like gardening.  I discovered that today after I sent myself outside to pull some weeds. Some weeds turned into two buckets of weeds. Buckets as in tidy car 27 lb buckets. Of weeds. And there are still weeds in the garden areas wrapping around the outside of the house.

I get that gardens create curb appeal,  but I am never going to maintain one.  Not a pretty one, at least. Unless I marry a man who likes to garden.  Or hire a gardener. It’s monotonous work, neverending.

Hell, I may grow to like it just to be contrary with myself.  Cleaning is equally undesirable as a task. Would much rather have a maid or ten. But as it is necessary,  and considerably cheaper, I have realized it is easier to do myself.  And, hey, I am getting better at it. Still want a maid, but I’m winning at something.

Just heard the dryer,  time to fold fold fold. And then get ready for work.  Whee.

    Wow you are turning into a domestic goddess there Lady Jane. Also a gardener at the same time. God I hate weeding, raking, and all that crap. But I have a wonderful daughter-in-law (Debra) who gets me started each year. Keep at it because it will be half your life for the rest of your life!

    You could do like Anne and I did and just let massive rhubarb plants take over your yard. Not that we have a huge yard here at the apartment, but I never need rhubarb could grow so damned tall.
