Getting Nothing Done

Please visit and like my new facebook page Georgia Home Garden.

I have two weeks off from work during Christmas and I had all these plans of all that I would accomplish around my house and in the garden.  Well, half of my vacation is gone now and I haven't got a single thing accomplished outside.  The weather has been awful, it has rained 5 out of the last 7 days.  I mean all day constant rain too, so the ground is pretty much saturated at this point.

 The weather is supposed to be dry the next few days so maybe I can get out and get some work done.  I have gotten a few seed catalogs in the mail and I am getting garden fever again. 

In other news this post puts me at the centennial mark for blog posts and I hope to keep going strong in 2012.  My wife and I are expecting our second girl around April 2012 so I am trying to get as much done now as I can because I know my time will be limited in the spring.

Congratulations on your new baby!!

I wish we had gotten more rain. My husband and I were looking at weather.com's totals for our area in the month of Dec., and their avg. rainfall for our area. Bad. Bad. Bad. We got 2 inches in Dec. and normally get 5. not a good thing.

But I am grateful for what we have gotten. It's better than the summer was, but still low.

Blessings. I am so happy about your new addition.

Congratulations! I'm excited for you and I want to wish you and your wife a fun and healthy pregnancy.

Cristy - I looked up the totals for us for December and we have gotten 5.05 inches this month. The most this year behind March. I don't like getting this much rain in the winter because it takes forever for the ground to dry. We are excited about the baby too, thanks.

Grafix - Thanks for the kind words, that statement is true in more ways than one. My daughter will be five in February and she has pretty much taken care of her self the last few years. Starting over with all the sleepless nights and diapers makes me antsy when I think about it. The first one you are so naive and don't know what is going on, but now I know all too well what I have coming.

The only reason I like getting rain in winter is that my fruit trees do fine in summer drought if they get enough winter rain to get to that ground water. (Love Graphix Muse's quote, BTW.)
