Summery Autumn Day

So, the dogs and I were on the deck today enjoying our beautiful weather. I love Colorado weather! We have seasons, which I enjoy, and over 300 sunny days per year. Glorious! This is a portion of the deck where my newest toy resides.
Armed with ideas from searching online, I drew a potting bench and DH got some redwood and built it to suit my 5-4" height--very comfortable for me!
The green plastic basin sets in a cut out space so that I can do potting in there, then dump the spilled soil back into the bag. Can we say "messy"? This bench is a real motivator! I repotted two large house plants that should have been done about three years ago! See, if I want to play at my new potting bench, I have to actually do something!

Tomatoes--tomahtoes. I love the smell of freshly picked tomatoes followed by devouring them! I don't want to mislead anyone into thinking I am a gardener. I am not a gardener, but I play with plants. When I was teaching, I'd tell my kids, "I'm not a singer, but I sing." or "I'm not an artist, but I draw." The same concept applies here.

Listen to my voice in the morning, Lord. Each morning I bring my requests to you and wait expectantly.
