Today I...

Planted my last flower...
Pulled my last weed...
Deadheaded my last Marigold (which I am no longer a fan of...), Petunia, Cosmo, Geranium, and the list of flowers could go on and on...
Bent over one last time showing my back end to whom ever was passing on a busy street - thank heavens for my overalls!
Shoveled my last pile of dirt - by the way, I now hate the sound of a shovel scraping over cement!
Picked up my last bit of garbage...
Dumped my last pile of garbage...
Pruned my last bush...
Screamed one last time at a slimy worm poking their head up at me...
Watered my last flower bed...
Wore my overalls one last time...they are going into hibernation until next May when I start working on the flower crew again!
Soaked the sun up for one last farmers tan...
Woke up at 5:30am for the last time...(although, I hope to keep up the early morning routine so I can study my scriptures in the dawns early light, rather than just before sleepy time!)
Shoved dirt under my fingernails and toenails one last time...My poor feet look horrible, a much needed pedicure will take care of that tomorrow!
Finished several books (including Harry Potter 3 & 4) on tapes...
Got off work one last time smelling dirty, and looking sweaty...

AND...

Tried not to cry as I said "Goodbye," or "See you all next May" to my fun summer job working on the Flower Crew at SUU.
This is Ross, my Boss! Him and I would wear our overalls everyday...he's the one who inspired me to buy a pair. Ross the Boss also taught me a lot about planting, gardening, and flowers galore! He was a great Boss, that Ross!
Oh Crystal, my coworker who taught me a lot of patience!!! However, even though I couldn't stand her most of the time, not to say I'm not a pain in the butt, I told her today if she is working on the Flower Crew next summer I would be happy to be her "companion" as she called us, next summer. (Note about flower bed: this flower bed is in front of the President of SUU's home - Crystal and I would take care of it, and boy did it take a lot of work to make it look this good! If anything the people that drove down this street got to enjoy this beautiful flower bed. Also, it's a lot bigger than what is shown in the picture.)
Natalie and Holly - they worked on the lawn crew, but the three of us became fast friends! In fact, Natalie (the one in the red shirt) happens to be in the same situation I am in...Oh how the Lord works in mysterious ways...We are both 29, return missionaries, and trying to figure out our lives, and get through school. (By the way this picture was taken at SIX in the MORNING, so as to why I'm not as chipper looking...)

The new routine starts once again. School. I'm envious of all the knowledge you've learned about gardening. I'll be picking at your brain for info. for now on. Your 5:30 routine could include running too ;)
