Until June 10th, I'm on a writing retreat. Unfortunately, I am not in my favorite hermitage on monastery property in New Mexico.
Even though I'm at home there's no cooking, barely any cleaning, no tv, no Facebook, occasionally Twitter.
Mostly I'm back in time, using a hand-me-down typewriter and working on my WIP:
If I'm in the present I'm working on the new butterfly garden to replace that bare spot where a diseased maple used to be. A stepping stone path, transplanting and dividing perennials, adding containers because there are a LOT of roots we just can't remove because they are wrapped around our, gulp, gas line!
Yep, not much time on social media. One exception: Pinterest. It's helped me plan out my garden, figure out how to stack a wall around a french drain, attract butterflies. I had to start a Front Yard Makeover board just to handle all the ideas.
I also check out my own boards when I need a break from looking at all
my WWII boards. Living in the mindset of a second WWII means keeping the
homefront going and contributing to the war far away. Or it means
dealing with the war in your own backyard, the one with the vegetable
garden you need to survive. A mental break of the best kind.
You can see what I'm up to here. I would love for you to follow the boards you like or just follow me. I'm always added a new prayer or inspirational saying, a vintage dress or a recipe.
Here are some of my favorite boards:
Gluten Free and Adaptable Goodies Board.
Fashion of a Different Era
Mad about Plaid
Porches, Patios and Garden Spots
All Things Book
Until next time, Julie
