My lovely zen garden has been quite the spot for adventure the last few days. Usually I go there for moments of calm, to sit and think, to draw, to read, to sit and be by myself, or just to sit while my husband BBQs dinner on the other side of the garden. Basically, just to sit. Sit, sit, and sit more. I like to sit and procrastinate. It was Procrastination City.
But then the other night I was sitting there looking at how pretty my hydrangeas are when suddenly barky dog from next door chewed through the fence and got all barky IN MY GARDEN. And that made me barky and doggy left puddles across the yard as he went back to his own house. Great.
Today, there was another type of puddle in the garden. The type that requires digging, mud flying, multiple trips to Home Depot, and the water being turned off. I didn't do any of that stuff. I just stood there and ate licorice while I watched my husband battle the growing puddle. Standing with licorice is my new sitting.
Standing water will be the new garden feature for the next few days. I wonder what it will attract while we are gone? I hope the barky dog can swim.
*I don't get why everyone loves Hipstamatic. I can barely see what I'm taking a photo of and changing the filters takes too long and is hard. I'm leaving it on this setting forever and am going back to CameraBag and ShakeItPhoto. I don't care if I am stuck in 2009.
