Welcome to another weekly snoop! Today sees a bit of dreary day here in Hampshire compared to all the sun we’ve had recently and I for one am a bit glad! We desperately need some rain in the UK and although I don’t think it will be much, it will save people having to water their gardens today at least.
You can just about see the end of our Victory Garden so far on the left just above the ipad stand. It has taken us 5 years to get that far down between all the health issues we’ve had in the family and other renovation projects etc but we’re getting there and we had our first harvest of lettuce last week.
The garden is one of my target areas for my One Little Word project which you can see on my desk. My word is “strong” and right now dear readers I do not feel in the slightest bit strong but we must try and keep on keeping on. The idea was to grow and obviously then eat, a lot of our own produce in working towards a strong mind and a strong body but all I want to eat is junk! You can just see in the album, the mood board we make as one of the OLW projects and I used a lot of healthy food and gardening images to create it. I’m also using the month Perspectives from Bramble Box so you can see how far behind I am! So far they have matched really well with the very old Simple Stories “I Am” collection that I’ve been using.
You can also see my traveller’s notebook with some Tesco orders sticking out to remind me to add up my Dad’s shopping bill – I know many of you have added shopping for your ‘rents to your routine and I salute you.
My desk that many of you commented on last week is actually just a standard white Ikea desk with a wood effect wipe clean table cloth over the top!
I also started this at the weekend. I do love stitching on my layouts but it obviously takes a while and as this will be for something exciting coming up soon I thought I’d better get started. I sat in the shade with a large glass of pretend gin, listening to the birds and ignoring everything else that needed doing. I recommend it!
