Side tracked

Do you ever get side tracked?  It seems to happen,to me, more often than it used to.
For example this morning I turned on the heater in the bathroom to get it nice and warm for my shower.
While I was waiting I looked for the magazine that had the honey dinner roll recipe I plan on making today.







I found the magazine then remembered I needed to go out to the green house to feed the fish.

As I was going to the greenhouse I have to walk through the sewing room where I saw the little quilt I was working on yesterday and thought I'd just stop a min. and cut out the binding.









When I got to the greenhouse I saw there were a few plants that needed to be cleaned and plants needed water.
Well the old hose leaked all over the place so Mr. T replaced it. While he was doing that I pressed the little quilt.
Then I started in the greenhouse. Well I can lose hours in that little space. The blooming plants, the water pouring out of the bio filter into the fish tank, the smell of the soil. It is something that I can't put in words how I feel when working with the plants.

oxalis has been blooming for weeks
geranium blooming in the corner

The space is small only 7 feet wide by 14 feet long but it gives me so much pleasure.
Mr.T. picked me up a bouquet at the grocery store yesterday. Treat your self. It will bring a bit of spring to your home in the dark days of winter. I did get the fish fed and I did take my shower just not in the order I planned. I get so much more work done in my pj's.    :>) I am linking to http://www.tootsietime.com/2012/01/fertilizer-friday-flaunt-your-flowers_20.html

I constantly get sidetracked......I think it's because I'm getting old and am losing my short term memory! Your greenhouse is just lovely. What a joy to have all those wonderful plants. The rolls look very tasty!!

I'm easily distracted, too. Thank you for the glimpses into your greenhouse. My favorite time of day is when I open the doors and fragrance and moist air meet me.

Oh, I want to have Oxalis and geraniums next year!

Thanks for the comments everyone.
Sherri, I seem to be side tracked daily.
Yes I am very fortunate to have my greenhouse.At one time I had a large greenhouse/flower shop business.I enjoy this small one as much as the big one.
NellJean,I went to see your greenhouse.it is so nice to have a table for tea.Mine is not large enough for that.The fish tank takes up too much space.
Robin EB,It was toasty warm.
