I love to play in the dirt. I get a real kick out of seeing my garden flourish. There’s nothing like harvesting your own vegetables, picking berries from your own plants, and cutting flowers from your garden to display in your home. Gardens need tender loving care – as does your home. To stay as lovely as you would like it to be a garden needs regular maintenance. As a professional organizer, this is right up my alley. I am all about scheduling time to get things done. I like to think about certain garden tasks in the same way as I think about household chores. Who doesn’t like the way a beautiful garden looks? To maintain that beauty you have to do some weeding, some pruning, some feeding – you get the idea. I really don’t mind weeding if I can do a little at a time. So, I schedule about 10 – 15 minutes a day in different sections of my garden. That way everything gets weeded, pruned, or fed (as needed) and I don’t have to spend an entire day doing it and have a backache as a reward. I think it is the same thing as doing some chores around the house. I don’t really love doing them. I do love knowing that my house is clean, though. So, I take a few minutes at the end of the day to wipe up any spills and generally straighten up. Interesting, isn’t it?
