Oh SOOOO CONTRARY!!!

3 Things I learned about Gardening today...

1) Patience is not virtue....I waiting patiently for the weeds to go away. Instead they grew 6 feet

2) If you wear a really cute skirt and shirt with a really cute apron over it to weed, even though you look cute....you will still get bitten where no woman should ever be bit.

3) When you take off said skirt and place it nicely over your antique vanity chair while you take a shower, when you return from the shower you will find that a really big yucky black spider lurking amongst the weeds will also think your skirt is cute and decide to hide in under a fold for a few HOURS until you take the skirt off...Thus causing you to flail around naked screaming things you shouldn't scream and scratching parts that should never need scratching.

The lesson??

Don't bother weeding the garden. Accept as lost cause.

I have a constant battle with spiders around here. They are always hitching rides on me and they tickle when they scurry across my skin. It's the ants that - um - go where they should not go, under my clothes.

Maybe if you wore underwear under that cute skirt you wouldn't get bit in those unmentionable spots?? LOL

After a cup of coffee said...

I so agree! Ban gardening!

Thanks for the laugh. Sorry it's at your expense! Hope the bites aren't too itchy!

I've been busy weeding as well although my problem is sore leg muscles from all the bending and kneeling.
