    Reminds me I am nearly
    Always in pj's or cooking when the telephone or door bell rings. Dirty I have been but they never come then only when I'm chilling out.
    Finished is better than a UFO

    Does anyone else have trouble wearing gloves while planting? I found a snug pair that I can wear while trimming trees/shrubs & moving rocks but cannot keep them on when it comes to planting.

    Oh, I envy you ... but I'll be covered in dirt before long! Closing on our new house on May 15th and as soon as the furniture is in, I'll be off to the garden to release my own inner pig pen!

    Anyone who could run off to the country club right after gardening isn't working hard enough :-)

    I am right there with you on the dirt and with the others on the paint. My brother-in-law could paint an entire room while wearing a suit and not get a drop of paint on it. Me -- I have designated paint clothes and when they get stiff with paint, I trash them.

    And many a time I come in the back door after yardwork and strip so I don't track the dirt throughout the house on my way to the shower.

    But the main thing is, it all gets done!

    I'll have to finish raking up the blasted leaves that dropped after I thought I had most of em done last fall. 5 large pin oak trees and 4 "other" and the woods borders our back yard. I'm too old for this #@$%#@. and dirty when gardening? yep. only way to do it.

    My DH is the Pigpen of our family. I am the one that can go outside and plant potatoes and come inside wash my hands and host a dinner. He on the other hand can go water the roses and come back inside needing a shower and a change of clothes. He and I have always been this way and we laugh out loud about it and have for 35 years!

    Anniedeb, your statement reminded me of my two oldest daughters when they were little. The oldest was a dirt magnet from the word go, and her sister could be within and inch of a mud puddle and not get a speck on her! Even as she grew older, the oldest would still attract dirt...sadly, we lost her in a car accident just before she was 20 years old, but I still smile at memories the things she, her sisters, and brothers did for, to, and with each other!
    When someone mentions quilting, I go to pieces!
