Are You a Planter or a Weeder?

I've been working in my garden a lot, as it is that time of year to be planting. While on my knees planting little tomato seedlings, I had an epiphany. I enjoy weeding much more than I do planting. I found much more satisfaction from pulling weeds and tidying up than I did from putting those tender little plants in the ground and nurturing them. This probably says a lot about my personality. I am a black and white person I don't see lots of shades of grey in life.  I like really strong, straight out of the tube colors. I don't have fun with conventional activities and don't live well in the moment. I'm always thinking about what I need to do next. It is easy for me to see the glass half empty rather than half full.   ...sigh ...   If those of you who know me would like to add to this analyzation of myself, you know how to contact me. You may even see your comments added to this post. Here are a couple pictures of my garden.

ADSR7 Detour #2 - Recipe for adventure!

It may be a little sad that my adventure was in creating a household cleaning product, but you gotta take what you can get.  Right?  If you follow me on Pinterest you'll find instructions on how to make this on one of my boards.  I have to say I've been trying out several of the cleaning tips and they are working.  I had spilled some grease on a little wool rug in my kitchen and it had been there a long time, so long that my husband said to throw it away.  But, I found a tip that said to let baking soda sit on the spots (which I did for about a week as I was too busy to get back to it) then with a clean white rag and vinegar and dawn dish detergent and hot water wipe it out.  It worked!  No more grease spots on my rug.
The digital kit used to make this layout is one of my own creations titled:

ADSR7 Detour #1 I Can See Clearly Now

This challenge was to create a layout using our favorite song. This has been a favorite of mine since it came out and never ceases to uplift me.

Challenge One

This is my layout for Challenge 1 of ADSR7.  You had to take a photo that had something wrong with it, you couldn't edit it but you could re-size it and then scrap it.  It's hard to tell but my foreground is blurred and the tree is in focus. That is not how I intended it but I still couldn't bear to delete the photo since the subjects are so dear to me and I love the "feel" of the photo.  Go check out the ADSR gallery over at to see lots of other ways to save iffy photos.
