Just between you and me, I haven't been doing such a great job of keeping up with the garden area in the past couple weeks. I've somewhat lost interest for various reasons and we have been so busy with other daily Summer realities that there hasn't been the time to try to keep unwieldy plants in order. Meanwhile, the utility room has gone from having a tidy little corner of Wedding supplies to spilling over with piles, boxes and items. It is not a pretty site.
What needs to happen is that we need to start paying attention to watering and weeding, and we need to finish compiling our teams and task lists for the final week. These big checklist items are weighing heavy and obvious, but they also coincide with the impending home stretch when our psyches are ready for the entire event to be over.
To be absolutely honest, what we'd like to be doing is going to ball games and visiting with friends and family and lounging on the deck in the evening air. Since I haven't been able to talk Teri into hiring a gardener and a personal assistant for the final five weeks, we are just going to have to figure out how to do what needs to be done and still maintain some of what we so love about the Summer!
