My mom did not mind to pull out weeds. Imagine that, she even loved to do it! She did not pass this down to me, though. Weeding is not my favorite thing to do. I actually hate it!
I used to love gardening — until that week in October of last year when one of my greatest gardening tools got Blown Away. 😦 Since that fall my enthusiasm to grow veggies and salads is kinda like gone with the wind.
Then a long and harsh winter came, followed by literally no spring at all. Due to that I wasn’t able to get much done, like sowing and preparing for the summer garden. Now, since a few weeks, we are groaning because of the tremendous heat we are experiencing and it is hard to do any work in the garden. Great excuse not to be pulling weeds! 😉 Yup, I was able to blame it on the weather. Yay! But you see, I was so tired of things gone wrong in my garden that I didn’t care about the weeds growing and growing — and boy, were they growing!
A few days ago I’ve got so upset and refused to look at this jungle out there any longer. I had to go outside and do some weeding! I just had to! And, you know what? I didn’t have to do it alone. No, sadly my mom died in 2011 so she couldn’t help me. But more than twenty years ago God has sent a wonderful man into my life who is now my husband. He did most of the hard work and once we were finished pulling the weeds I began to love gardening a bit more again. 😉
Getting rid of the huge amount of weeds was a real pain but could have been avoided if I would have done it soon enough, little by little…
Sometimes we do have to put off things until the last minute, right? Most of the time, it’s best to work off things right away, though, or else we will get into quite some trouble. Are you delaying to solve problems? Are you procrastinating important things? Perhaps now is the time to tackle them?
