Green thumb? Yeah right.

Well, there isn't a whole lot going down with the Johnsons this week...

Clay is still making the 2 hour trek to Atlanta for work every day.  He loves his job which is a blessing and somehow makes up for the 4 hours he spends in the car.  He even got to shoot skeet all day on Friday!   

Last Saturday was gorgeous so we spent the day outside doing yard work...Clay mowed, I picked weeds in the flower beds by the pool.  Being the avid "worker-outer" that I am, my hamstrings were so sore Sunday morning from bending over and picking weeds all afternoon.  Sad, huh?  I prefer mowing...I'll save the weeds for Clay next time.  We went to Lowe's and I bought some seeds and a rose bush...we'll see how that works out once it gets warm and stays warm enough to plant them.  I have a 'whatever the opposite of green is' thumb.  I think I've killed every plant I've ever tried to take care of.  I even killed a whole line of bushes once.  I thought I was just cutting some vines off of them.  Obviously I cut a little more than I was supposed to.  Oops!  Luckily it wasn't here...I'm staying away from our bushes.  No pruning for me.  I'll save that for Clay too- weeds and pruning.  I need all the women in my family to come down all at once and teach me how to garden because I have no clue what I'm doing. 

Ahh!  How could I forget to blog about this??

Coley & I dream of becoming famous singers, so we figured the best way for us to begin our careers and achieve super-stardom would be to write a song.  We're serious, by the way.  The idea for our song came from the conversation we were having about the new furniture Clay & I just bought.  I was telling her how rustic it looked and that even Clay's mounted deer head would look good on the wall.  Yeah, I was as shocked as you are right now that I actually said that.  So was Coley.  Her response was the inspiration for our song.  "What has that boy done to you?"  Yep, we're going to write a song about a city girl trading in her high heels for 'Muck' boots.  Some of the topics that will be covered in the song are bassmasters, fishing, deer stands, and bird dogs.  It should be a hit.  We'll keep you updated on the progress.  I know the anticipation is killing you already...don't worry.  We're going to get started on it this weekend.  :o)
