Excitement and OHMYWORD
There's a big magazine in Indy called the Indianapolis Monthly (www.indianapolismonthly.com). I guess they are interested in doing a story on gardens of Irvington - the area where I live. This area is slated to become the largest historic district in the US.
Well, they are coming to MY yard to take photos on Tuesday night!!!!!!!!!!! --------- ???????????????? @#)(%)#(@*$ lol
I couldn't believe it! I got a call and the lady who heads up the Garden Tour for Irvington said IM mag wanted to know if they could come see my yard and take preliminary photos. I said yes but can they paint in some mulch? LOL She said, don't worry about weeding or mulching or anything...these are just preliminary photos.
YEAH RIGHT. As IF I'm going to NOT completely freak out and become obsessive the second I hang up the phone! So today I had 7 yards of mulch piled in the driveway and I'm going to be mulching for Jesus all weekend. LOL!! My DH is out of town so I called in a favor from my best friend.
Anyway, not to brag...but I'm really excited! I can't believe they want to see MY yard and put it in a magazine!!!! Mine?!?
To boot, I have a HUGE plant sale in my backyard the 22nd-25th to benefit my homeless nonprofit (www.pourhouse.org) and so I'm potting plants, watering, digging, weeding, mulching, going crazy...ahh!!!!
I just came in the house at 10...been out there since 7am...and I look like Dawn of the Dead. rotflol I am SO DIRTY - I mean, my face is dirt, in my ears...everywhere.
SLaphappy and hysterical right now...lolololol
ok, i'm done rambling. look at the bright side, at least i caught myself and didnt post this on the regular forum!
