T Stands for Tuesday

It's Tuesday again :) 
It's been a wet weekend here and I love it. We were so desperate for rain and we got a good amount of it. It's supposed to rain a couple of more times this week and things should really start growing around here. ♥
The first Asparagus tip showed up this morning :) 
I really wanted to plant potatoes this week but it's going to be too wet so it will have to be next week. I still have to pick up my straw bales too and get them started.  Always something to be done. 
I did finish the painting from last week and here she is with my cup of coffee. 
I'm happy with her. 
The only other art I've worked on since is the cover for my new Garden Journal. 
There are only a few pages left in the old one.

As you can see it has gotten rather thick over the last 2 years. I make little pockets to keep seed packets and photos in and also glue some of them to the pages so I don't forget what I planted and how well it did . 
This is how far I've gotten and I really don't know exactly what I'm going to go with it either. Just winging it.

Today's Random Thoughts

Now Don't forget to Play Nice and hop on over to Elizabeth's where she and Bleubeard are having a Grand Ole
Tea Party .
Just click on the Blue Teapot on my sidebar!


  1. Your girl is magical and so very beautiful Carol...a really brilliant creation.
    The garden journal looks so inviting with that lovely cover and the pages bulging a bit.
    Nothing like some nice rainfall for the garden. We could use a few days of steady rain.
    These Heartbeats are your people/Tribe = Love that!
    Happy T Day to ya oxo

  2. Hi Carol, that is an awesome idea-a gardening journal-;pve your finished lady
    Happy T Day

  3. Great idea with the garden journal. Glad you had rain, that will help the growth. Beautiful art, too. Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

  4. I was truly impressed with your lovely asparagus. My grandparents used to raise them and we ate well for a few weeks each spring, Lucky you.

    Last week when I saw your girl, I wasn't sure I liked where you were going. Today is much different, because I enlarged her and LOVE the way you finished her. Just goes to show, I shouldn't judge until I see the finished piece.

    Your first random thought is ME before coffee! And speaking of coffee, Maud has a way with words, doesn't she? Thanks for sharing your lovely garden book, your new book cover, your incredible lady, your garden, and your coffee with us for T this Tuesday.

  5. Wonderful art projects so beautiful. Great that you got some rain as well. The plants will be so happy but maybe want a lot more

    Happy T Day

    Love Chrissie xx

  6. Your paintings are really bright and joyful. Looks like you've been having fun. And lucky you (again) to have so much green coming up and rain. Enjoy your spring weather. Happy T day. Hugs-Erika

  7. Gorgeous art projects. Your girl is beautiful, I thought so last time as well, but today I can see how you are pleased with how she looks now. I would have her framed and on the wall.
    It good that you got the rain you needed for the garden.
    Happy T day.

  8. Winging it sounds like a good idea. Your beautiful lady with all the colors still makes me smile. We got rain too and we are very happy. More tonight, tomorrow and Thursday. Maybe we will push that drought out!

    1. Thanks Pix! Isn't this rain lovely!!!!!

    2. Yes, and we have been getting more but now I am beginning to need to see some sunshine. Hope all is well with you, I haven't seen a post!

  9. oh Carol your painting is so beautiful!!! Love your garden book and I know the new one will fill up quickly too. Happy T day!

  10. Such a beautiful painting, she looks so magical! How wonderful that you keep a Garden Journal, I bet it's full of tips and wisdom! Your new Garden Journal cover looks fantastic, I can't wait to see it finished! I really like the Tribe Random Thought too. Happy T Day! J :-)

  11. Your painting looks so interesting. Lots of detail to get lost in. That big old stuffed garden journal is delightful. I enjoy seeing altered books that are well used. Nice start on your new one too.

  12. Gosh your painting turned out incredible!! LOVE all the detail. What a great way to show off your coffee cup this week!! Happy T day! Hugs! deb

  13. "It was a sit up. You did one sit up." roflol!

    That sounds like a good way to keep track of how particular plants did. I tend to just stick the tag in the ground and hope I'll remember.

    Happy T Tuesday.

  14. Oh my goodness, your painting turned out stunning! really lovely...and your garden journal sounds fabulous too, what a great record of what you do each year and how it worked out. happy T day!

  15. Oh My Carol! I love how your painting has been completed! She is beautiful! Great to see the new asparagus - I hope your weather improves! Your new Garden Journal is looking good so far - I wonder what you will do?? Happy T Day! Chrisx

  16. Carol potatoes? I have not grown potatoes or anything else for that matter since I have lived in OR. Too wet, too windy, and too cold. I love your garden journal I have never thought to make one great idea. Oh and yes I would have a cup of coffee with your girl and you. Have a great day.

  17. I love your painting and have enjoyed watching her evolve. I hope you have a place to display her permanently.

    I think it's time for a new garden journal, Carol ;-)

    Belated happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen
