First, for those of you who know me really well or not, how many of you think I’d be the type who likes to hike or do similar rigorous activities? Pretty obvious no, right? Well, so there was this one guy who ridiculed me for it, as though I was a bad human for not wanting to hike up Camelback Mountain every weekend.
So, I bought my first DSLR and thought, well, maybe if I walked around and took pictures I’d enjoy it more. He was still mad at me for it and now that guy is gone and I still have my DSLR and a new career. I say this as an intro to tell you that maybe if you don’t like something, you can find ways to enjoy it – whether it’s a pair of really cute boots, or a fun colored blanket, whatever it takes to make you enjoy doing something, you should do it!
And you shouldn’t feel guilty about it! Most of the things we enjoy in life can be attributed to the fun little tools and gadgets we have to experience it along the way. Don’t feel guilty about it, because if your heart doesn’t want you to do something, you don’t have to. But if finding incentives to make you want to participate help, let them. You may find that you like it more than you ever cared to admit.
Sometimes I think I sound off too much about relationships because I’ve been in some cruddy ones until I found Mr. Wonderful – and I am. Primarily I am because I see too many of my single girlfriends putting up with similar confusion or verbal abuse about who they are, and there is nothing wrong with you, what you like, don’t like, or what you enjoy. Ok, enough relationship rant.
So anyway, all this to say that I never liked to garden until I found time, and some really stinkin’ cute things that make gardening fun.
First, let’s start with the cutest thing, ever. Wellie soaps!!!!
But wait, look how they are packaged!!!
I think I just died.
I’ve also had my eye on this for a long time.
On another note, I came across this that would seriously freak me out and make me hate game night:
Or maybe I should have had this so I’d be less freaked out.
Let’s say you have little gardeners and you want to encourage their gardening and creativity, this I would have LOVED when I was younger:
Diana Elizabeth says gardening is so relaxing but she sneezes like crazy.
