I received a text from my friend Cathy a few weeks ago that not only made me chuckle, but also gave me something to think about.
Digital Maker Playground and read about Maker Spaces, (this book is a must read) the more I felt like nothing was impossible. I was feeling empowered. I found myself contemplating new projects that I would never have considered in the past.
Which brought me to Square Foot Gardening. Since my backyard is a blank slate and I NEED to garden because it feeds my soul, I decided that would be my next project. Now, in the past, I would have shown my husband the information and he would have taken off with the latest DIY project...measuring, sawing, building, while I waited patiently for his part to be done so I could do my part. My part would consist of anything that I knew that I could do successfully.
Not this time. I told him that I was going to help build the garden beds, mix the soil, and lay the grids. These tasks are WAY OUT of my comfort zone to say the least.
I discovered that power tools give me a sense of accomplishment!

This weekend, I became a builder. Who knows what's next?
