Moving in a hundred different directions but oddly enough, I feel better when life gets hectic. Must be something about the blood flowing through the veins and the joints and muscles moving and stretching, as they should.
It was a busy weekend—after months of waiting for spring to arrive, we finally had a good warm day and I didn’t waste one moment of it. And even though I thought I had a plan, plans changed. Instead of staying inside to do a much needed spring clean I ended up outside, in the barn, doing a major clear out. Garden tools reorganized, hoses stretched out and recoiled outside where they’ll soon be needed, floors and barn boards swept and cleared of cobwebs, and an array of motorized and gas powered garden apparatus rearranged for the season. Snow blower, moved to the corner; Rota tiller, moved forward, ready for its annual veggie garden prep; lawn mowers, parked, front and central. Roof rake—your work here is done!
Spring is finally here and everything we need is at hand, ready to begin another long and lush gardening season. May - November, the most exhausting yet exhilarating time of the year.
