Simple Ramblings From A Prim Cottage

Tuesday, April 16, 2013

Just stopping in to say Hi! I know my blogging has been sparse,but I'm still in pain.I found out that the reason it hurts different this time is because it's not my sciatica (which I have trouble with) but a different nerve I think it's called femoral and that it could take two months or more to heal.I try not to take alot of pills but have been taking some muscle relaxers.It's been 3 weeks it feels a little better but still alot of pain and hard to sit so less computer time.Of course I push myself,there's so much to get done.It's finally spring here so I want to be getting the gardening ready,yardsaling and getting outside.I did set up market over the weekend and tried to do as I normally do,let hubby watch while I run and look it was ok the stuff on tables but squatting and bending didn't work.Did find a old firkin/sugar bucket and old skeleton keys but not much.I think it was just that I didn't really look hard enough with the pain,because my friend usually leaves her stuff on the side of my vehicle till she is done for the day and she found tons of wonderful old stuff.She has the old canvas shopping baskets and found a metal holder for them that was so neat.I've also got all my stuff gathered to start my bucket gardening,a few seeds to start but a little early to buy plants.We have a local nursery and they always have heirlooms and some unusual varieties that I like to try something new each year.Usually the beginning of may is the time for plants here in Pa.I'm going to go ahead and get some spring onions in,cutting lettuce mix,some rainbow carrots(never tried before)  and start some zucchini seeds.Well girls not much going on here mainly running to Drs and boring everyday life..smile..I have been visiting you all on my IPad but not commenting so much as my time is limited with the sitting positions.I hope you all have a wonderful week! ~Amy

Sorry you are still in pain. Hopefully you will get relief soon. I am going to copy your bucket idea and plant some tomato plants in a bucket. I think I should be able to plant 2 in one bucket.

I hope your pain subsides soon sweet Amy. I was telling John (he is one of my fab vendors at the flea) he needs to put his items on tables. I can't squat for very long lol and I was searching thru his castor wheels to ind 4 that matched.

Can't wait to read about your garden once it is planted!!

Hi Amy,
So sorry to hear that you are still not doing well! Take care of yourself! With the weird weather and still having some cold temps not sure when we should start planting! My daylilies are coming up in the brick garden and I have one planter full of beautiful pink flowers! Not sure where they came from!! Because I had planted some cheap plants from Lowes in that planter last summer and that was a yellow flowers. Enjoying watching the chipmunks and squirels play on the front porch and eat the corn and sunflower seeds I put out for them. I watched the chipmunk sit on top of my Arndette rabbit last Friday for a good 20 minutes. His cheeks were as full as he could get them before he got down and took the food back to the his nest lol
