Resolution...spell that!

It's wrong, no...no...no...no! It has to be wrong. Right? How can the New Year start in winter. Who set this calendar up anyway? And why, oh why, do I have to follow it? Ah hah--I don't!! *grin*

I'm not one for resolutions at any time of year, and I don't do well with setting goals. Things I'd resolved to do, goals I had set, almost always changed. Life gets in the way of both. Resolutions, I can't think of a single one I made--and kept. Is that a bad thing? I don't think so. For me the bad thing was making it, and breaking it. That made me feel bad, so I stopped making resolutions. And that's that.

I celebrate the beginning of a new year when trees bloom, when tulips pop up in my yard, and when birds sing a new song. For me the year begins when Spring arrives. I don't resolve to work in my garden, I don't plan to plant a new flower, I don't have to--it happens. It happens because I simply love springtime!!

Everyone has a time that they feel new, refreshed, and alive. Use that time to grow and flourish, resolve only to use that time to do what you want to do!

And in finishing, I found some pics of plants, after all--it's Friday! *grin*

I set goals that way when I don't reach them I can look back and say-well at least I came close. With resolutions I can only look back and say -well I sure trashed that one. lol As for your plantlife. I'm sure that your other readers will appreciate them much more than me.ROFLMAO

Wow, Ms. Joann...I think you need to spend more time among the plants. You certainly have some astounding growth. I like it.

Hee hee.

Now that's what I call gardening.

Joann said...

Who can think about Resolutions, much less spell the dang word when you post pictures like that. LOL

I feel the urge to get in touch with the Earth.

Shovel anyone?

Joann said...

DL, how are you? I know *smacking hand* bad me...bad, bad me! lol

Doing alright.
I need to get me some of that Miracle Grow. Just add water, um, better not. Wet hunks might send the readers of PR into meltdown.

Let's melt 'em down...I almost posted one in wet shirt, but he wasn't a man plant :(

Indeed! Bring on the water.
