Flower Beds...spents 4 nights after work digging, lifting and separating plants. Gave alot away and then went to 2 plant sales and you can bet the outcome LOL!! Everything is just so nice at those sales. I tried to control myself. Then I went fishing too and was booted off the bank. No private property sign and it was a former boat launch too - weeds and gravel. It was calling me, I had go fishing!! Who else loves to fish?

I went to a nearby forest preserve where Christopher and I planted 12 trees celebrating earth day. We planted these trees in the heat and I have been faithfully hauling water in buckets up the steep hillside from the lake for two weeks with my arthritic knees. Today, I found the trees ripped from the ground, broken in pieces and many had new roots and leaves. Their stakes were broken and stripped from their planting holes. What a senseless waste. This is a forest preserve taken over by gangs and has become a community eye sore for some time. I am totally disgusted!

My iris are really blooming. I love how they responded to my recent lifting and dividing them. They were not blooming, so I dug them all up and replanted in bare garden areas.

Graduated an 11 week Aurora Police Department Citizen Police Academy. I am truly grateful for all my city's officers do for my community. Professionally organized, engaging real time activities with many officers, exposure to all departments including our fire department, and ongoing interaction with incredibly patient, knowledgable and dedicated community servants. I am truly humbled to have a completely free opportunity to apply and be chosen to participate inside the Aurora Police and Fire Departments.
