Awhile back I mentioned that I wanted to get all the weeds out of the flower bed in front of my house and plant new flowers. Over the past 8 months or so, the flower bed went from looking like this:
I don’t keep things alive well, which isn’t good news for my bunny.
I decided to put some Weed and Feed in the flower bed and start fresh. When I used Weed and Feed at our last house, it killed ALL the grass. Um, I thought there was the “Feed” part in there?
I decided since Weed and Feed did so well killing my entire lawn the last time, it would be great way to start fresh with my flower bed. Well, this time the “Feed” part decided to work.
Awesome. My grass is dead everywhere now except for the one place I don’t want it.
Now I am determined to start “Operation: Please Don’t Die Lawn.” I am going to water the lawn, which I hear is great for keeping it alive and I’m already in the process of killing the new “grass” in the flower bed with weed killer I bought over the weekend. I will have a pretty lawn and flower bed dammit.
That brings me to my Monday Mini Miracles:
1. I bought actual weed killer this time.
2. I’m back on track with my eating today. Let’s just say I didn’t do well this weekend. At all.
See that –74? That’s bad.
My best friend asked me if I made that negative number red myself or if Weight Watchers does that. Oh? You’ve never gone negative before?
Yeah. Weight Watchers makes that red for you. A bright, shining beacon of your weekend failure.
3. The hubs brought me my favorite salad from Hummus House for lunch today and he remembered the pickles. Since pickles are my new obsession on salads, this made for a very happy me.
Have you ever Googled “pickles?”
What are your Monday Mini Miracles?
Any advice on how to plant flowers, kill weeds, and make your lawn look magnificent without actually putting any work into it or spending money?
