A White Plumber in My Garden

Last Saturday I spent most of the day bent over on my knees planting my garden. I was not ashamed that I was wearing my old jeans and had to keep hitching them up like a plumber with a beer gut. My husband reminded me to pull my pants up once after I asked him to hand me the trowel and he did so by placing it ever so gently in my coin slot, chaching! Jerk.

I must say I don’t have time for glamour when I’m busy digging in the dirt. I don’t care what I look like or what anyone else thinks about how I look. I’m busy planting dadgumit!

However, I was humbled when I was downloading some pictures and found that one of my children took this of me, probably while I was ignoring their request to be fed.

Are you all blinded by the white? That portion of my back was fried to a nice red crisp. Yep, I had a crescent shaped burn on my plumber’s butt.
