Shortly after Easter this year I got a very bad concussion that left me on full bed rest for three weeks and semi bed rest for another 3 weeks. For the first three weeks after the diagnosis I was not allowed to use a computer or a phone. I could not even watch TV. I was only allowed to sleep or take a walk if I felt good. The first couple of weeks were hard. The following weeks were better as I learned how to pace myself. I realized that my body was quite adept at letting me know when it had had enough. And so I listened to me and surprisingly, I learned a lot about myself.

Log pathways


We were driving by a house the other day and I noticed a whole bunch of logs just laying there on the edge of the property. They were just begging to be picked up. As we passed by all I could think of was how wonderful they'd look in my garden. Unfortunately this time of year is not the time to be starting a large garden project, and we really had no where to store them until next Spring, so I had to leave them there. However, nothing prevented me from showing you how you could incorporate some old wooden logs into your garden so here are a few ideas!

I love the idea of using the logs as part of a pathway to the vegetable garden. I really like how the round shape of the log pieces look surrounded by the rectangular shape of the planting beds.
