Garden Fashion

I do believe I have found a must have in garden fashion! What I wouldn't do to have a pair of these to wear in and around my garden. I might just go wander around outside for an opportunity to put on these beauties! These boots could make any garden misadventure delightful. I don't actually own a pair but am hopeful I will soon. Hint Hint Hint if you love me!

A little lazy

Beyond admitting that I am cheap I should probably admit that I am a bit lazy. For example my garden hose. The end of it has been bent for....well, as long as I can remember. It is very annoying. Every time I hook it up to something, it leaks. And every time it leaks it makes me cringe as I also am a staunch advocate of conservation. So why didn't I fix it eons ago? Because I am lazy. I truly should not have been lazy about this. The fix is disgustingly simple and cheap. I purchased a new hose end for $3.50 and some new hose washers to fix some other leaks for about $1.50. It took all of five minutes of my daughters nap to render 5 hose connections leak free. I am truly ashamed of myself. So, I encourage you, just take care of some little things this week.
