I learned in sales to have a 'win' every day. Something that makes you feel good. Sometimes, it's achieving a goal. Sometimes it's just working toward that goal. Sometimes a hug from a child, a kind word from your spouse, or a smile from a stranger is all it takes to have a 'win' that day.
Gardeners have a 'win' when we find a bloom, a bee, or a butterfly in our gardens. Or when someone compliments our garden. Or when we have completed a new bed, found a new plant for our garden, or even just pulled a weed that day.
Have you ever thought about pulling weeds as a 'win'?
That's why I was so excited when Heather at What's Blooming This Week? announced that I was the winner of her CobraHead tool giveaway! Wahoo! And I've been winning at getting weeds out of the garden ever since it arrived in my mailbox!
Do you know how hard it is to hold a camera in the 'wrong' hand, and take a picture while weeding?
I like this tool the best for digging down deep beside a deep-rooted weed in order to get the entire root out. Do you know how long I've been trying to completely dig up some of these weeds? Leave any portion of the root and they spring back up again. It's also going to be great at cultivating the soil when I get ready to plant my vegetable garden.
Thanks, Heather! With my new tool, I can now have a 'win' every day!
