Ok, I know, this post is suppose to contain pictures of me!!
But I do not have, but this IS something I am busy with.
     I am busy transforming the garden in my backyard.
You, see, about a month ago, my garden boy died. He had his hand on my garden.
I started by taking all the old things out and adding some compost to my ground.  I also started my own "herb garden" in this old tub, I took some pictures of Megan in it too!lol!!
I am not complaining, it is something I have been wanting to do.

 My mom actually has the green fingers, but I also seem to enjoy it.
Now, this part needs a serious revamp, the soil is also very bad here.
I will for sure take more pictures, the more the little job is progressing.
I am also back in doing 2 Spinning classes and am slowly starting to add a bit of running too.
We are also planning a "boot camp" on Wednesdays and Fridays.
My afternoon class is seriously picking up and I have a few experienced mountain bikers in my class,which adds a bit of a challenge to my class!
I did some scrappy  shopping, not too serious, BUT I can add that I got my hands on some Teresa Collins paper, something you don't see around here.
I am once again, way behind on my ironing, have to get a grip on that, TONIGHT!!
I am so glad for the return of Brothers and Sisters, I enjoy that series so much:)
While typing this, I am suddenly feeling VERY hungry,need to go and grab something!
Enjoy, whatever you are busy with!!


  1. Good to get an update on YOU today...
    Your garden is looking great...well done
    Sorry about the garden boy though.

    Are u teaching the spinning classes or attending them?

    Congrats on that special paper...your work is top class..ask me ~ I have it on my walls!!!

  2. I love messing around in the garden...but we have had water restrictions due to the drought since October last we are seeing a lot of our plants dying. I can't wait for the rain to come so that my garden can become beautiful again.

  3. Sounds like you are having fun. I love my garden, but gardening is not my thing. I admire people who love to garden, reminds me of my dear mom who the grandchildren used to call 'ouma water' because she seemed to always be busy watering her garden. She claimed that it soothed her soul to do it, me? I just get bored and irritated because it takes so long. LOL

  4. I so don't have green fingers.
    Wish you all the best with your little garden endeavor, love me a good herb garden. So much fun.

  5. I always admire anyone with green fingers ! wonderful work in your garden , Tania !

    We haven't had Brothers & Sisters here for a while now ! I wonder what happened ! hmmm I am enjoying the latest season of Desperate Housewives tho' - very fast paced it's become ! woot ! lol

  6. Oooh I am enjoying the All About Me Mondays...think I may have to join in with that too! Your garden is looking good girl, love all those plants...duranta, agapathus, liriope, lots of my faves in there I can see...and a herb garden in the old tub is a stroke of genius! Brothers & Sisters has taken the place of Desperate Housewives so I hate it for that reason alone lol...won't watch it as it's a thief!!! Now we need to see a layout with that TC paper, or a photo of it at least, and I am waiting on you for a topic for tomorrow!
