survival in a sanctuary

my garden has been such a sanctuary for me for years and i cannot wait to see peggy martin bloom where i planted her and thrive. the story of this rose is truly inspirational and i already feel such a kinship to her. we get to be sisters in a way and learn to live a new life.
peggy martin is the most appropriate first purchase for me as a singleton. she figured out that the coin isn't really heads or tails, but victim or survivor. this rose is going to remind me of this time in my life and reward me with bountiful beauty later and for that i am already thankful.
some accomplishments this week:
1) did not burn the meat when i grilled
2) cleaned the pool myself
3) bought my own toolbox & toolz
4) prepped and painted closet, will hang elfa shelving when paint cures
5) on my third book of the week
