Sunday morning, I woke up with the need to do something productive and positive.
With Coach off to work, Grammy and I gathered the kids and headed to the Creek.
Our 'Adopted Corner' chosen to make an 'IMPACT' on our town... is the little Path near our Creek. My favorite place in town. Loved for each walk, first with my grandmother and now with my little family.
October is perfect for Bulb Planting and yesterday could not have been a more beautiful day.
After we began digging, we realized the ground had fossilized like the peaks and ledges of the Grand Canyon. Very quickly I lost the help of The Kid. Moments later, I lost Grammy (now dubbed 'The Money' of the project, after purchasing the bulbs.)
I dug, chiseled and hack away at that ground, until I planted two small patches. Not exactly the yellow wonderland, I had envisioned. I am determined to try to get back there.
'The Money' still had an itch to Beautify the Town and busied the children by picking up garbage. Mostly, littered from the Homecoming festivities. The ToiletPaper-ers...were not shy.
I had hoped to grace The Carbonhill Bash...
Except, embarrassing Nephews and
Creating a more beautiful Town...
really wears a girl out.
**Friendly Reminder: Get out there and plant those yellow Tulips and Daffodils. We look forward to a town blanketed in Yellow this Spring!
