Since Labor Day is unofficially the last day of summer I figured I should do some work in our flowerbed. I spent a lot of time in it this spring, planted a ton on flowers only to have the rabbits eat all my starts. After that I was really sick with morning sickness and it turned into a weed-haven.
I spent some time picking out the majority of the weeds and this is the after shot:
I told my husband that the rest were in need of some real muscle strength – something a pregnant lady who’s supposed to be taking it easy just shouldn’t exert. All the weeds I picked were fairly easy to pull, all with shallow roots near the surface. There was just a ton of them! My hamstrings are feeling it this morning!
After my flowerbed exertions I took it easy and read a book. A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle. I really enjoyed this book although I think the author could have done a lot more with the book. I wont go into details but I think it is a fun and quick read. Yesterday I finished reading The Pearl by John Steinbeck and unless you are into classical literature I wouldn’t really recommend it and this is why; I personally don’t enjoy reading books that tell you how base and evil people are/can be. I know there is a lot of “deep” things you can draw from this book, but I wouldn’t recommend it for pleasure reading.
