I've got jury duty this week. I spent all morning in the court room. Wasn't picked. But have to call after 5:30 today to see if I am to return tomorrow. Chances are I will spend tomorrow doing the same thing. So of course this has got me all out of whack of how to move through my day and get everything done that I normally do. Plus, the girls and I are traveling this weekend to a dance and music festival so I'm feeling extra out of sorts in preparation for that.
Plus, last June a nasty thunderstorm rolled over our house causing all sorts of havoc. Our cellar took on several inches of water as it rushed in straight through the dirt walls. This pile above is evidence that a crew is in there fixing it this week. In fact, as I sit here typing this I can hear one of them singing a silly song as he builds a cinder block wall. This building crew is owned by a dear friend for which I am grateful because I know the job will be done right.
Turning 180 degrees from the previous picture is this fine pile of mulch and mushroom compost. Razor is adding more permanent beds to the vegetable garden area this year. We always plant after Mother's Day and these supplies mean we'll be ready.
Busy, busy. Lots of things going on. But instead of the chaos and the resulting out-of-whack-i-ness that I feel as a result, I'm choosing to see all the good stuff. Like the asparagus springing out of the dirt.
Never mind the weeds at it's feet. Besides, these aren't weeds. They are
And look! Future apples!
And most importantly, a future garden hand!
