Rather than make a small list of blogs to pass the award on to, I'd like to direct you all to the blogroll on the right sidebar of my page. It is full of excellent blogs, both of the gaming and non gaming sort. So if you're a gamer you might want to see what the rest of the blogosphere gets up to. And if I'm the only painter you read, please take a look at the talented people whom I share my hobby with.
I've fallen behind on my blog reading for the last few days and I apologise. Those of you have known me for some time may have a pretty good idea of where I've been. I've been working in my gardens.
This years work goes far beyond the norm for me. The severe cold damaged all of my rose bushes, my lavender, my sage and my Butterfly Bush and they all had to be cut back to about six inches. Now I don't just have one of each of these plants, I've dozens so it was a lot of work. Further I had to have two trees that were rotten cut completely down. This changed the light in two of my gardens. Where once I had part shade and part sun, I now have full sun. This meant moving about 30 pants into new places. Then there's the vegetables that had to be put down and I began work on a sixth flower garden as well.
I'm putting in about 10 hours a day and it's wreaking havoc on my knee. By the end of each day, I've got my leg elevated and am using ice packs to bring the swelling down. This is something I go through every year, so it's not a big deal but it is does make sitting under the laptop extremely uncomfortable. Hopefully I'll be back to some sort of normal by the end of the month.
I hope everyone has a nice weekend and to the Americans, I wish you all a pleasant Memorial Day weekend.
