Brenna your gardening already, I'm jealous.  We can't get to our backyard yet because of the snow.

I want to garden but know I really have to wait until after Mother's day - still plenty of chances for frost in the midwest.

Some of my gardens are bare and I hope to start soon raking them off and stirring up the dirt in my perrenial gardens.  Won't be planting annuals until Memorial week end up here.

I guess the title of "gardening" is misleading.  It was just us pulling up a whole lot of weeds from an area of the backyard that we never did anything with and want to try to do something with later this season.  I guess I should have just said "weeding," lol. cheeky

It is raining here and will probably continue all day. I am almost glad.. my feet and legs are sore. I need a break from the walking. The doggie and I have logged a lot of miles this month. I really need to hit the weights.

Hi  Stephenie,

Ive been watcing your log and you sure have been logging a lot of miles.  Bet your Dog loves it.  We have been having rain and is suppose to rain hard tomorrow here.  I've gotten out side a few times but am looking forward to a evening walk after supper as a daily thing  as soon as the weather co-operates.

The dog does love it. It has been working too. I have lost a few lbs. Don't have many to lose --mostly winter cushion. It has been nice and after a long cold icy winter I feel like every day that is nice i should take the Dog and my booty (ha!) for a walk.

I've had a pretty bad cold for the past week (thus the short little walks or no workout at all recently).  However, today I felt like I'm getting back into the game (having this week off, except for tomorrow, doesn't hurt either).  Hopefully I can finish out the rest of the month strong!

Good luck everyone! cool

I have just fallen off the wagon again.  You guys are all doing so good.  It is almost turkey hunting time so we are getting up early to go looking for them.  This week we will start going out hunting.  Its just been so hard to find time for the housework and exercising.  Once that is over I hope to get back in gear.  I was doing well on the bike, but maybe I'll try Stephenie's style and go walking.
