Day 491 - Best Laid Plans
Monday, April 04, 2016
We had every intention of putting the boat in the water today. The battery charger is struggling to get the boat battery fully charged, but that wasn't the sticking point.
We found a great new garden center in Middletown (about a half-hour drive from home) and found some amazing plants. We spent an hour after we got home planting all our finds (beautiful Heuchera, Lavandula, Buddleia, Hosta, as well as star jasmine, echinacea, rockrose, alyssum, and more). The owner was great at steering us to plants that would tolerate our windy conditions. With only a couple exceptions, all of our plants are in pots, so they dry out quickly and tend to get very spindly. Our hibiscus are all struggling, and I fear that we will probably lose them this year because they are poorly suited for this climate.
We are still adjusting to living on the lake, but it's an adventure every day! We will get the boat into the water next Sunday (unless something comes up), but we will have a great time no matter what!
Because sometimes life is about how you deal with what happens to you, rather than what you make happen.
Enjoy what happens, and cherish every moment. Life is awesome! Live it with gusto!
