Heading Out –

May 6, 2009 | Uncategorized | 6 comments

7:15 a.m.  Rain in the forecast for 1 p.m.  That means I can work until the chickens need food at noon.  We’ll come in and crank “Dot Com” as Aidan calls Laura Ingraham while we eat much needed food and take a much needed rest.  

I don’t know what is going on but I have been so tired since our crazy weekend and it’s just not like me to be tired.  Last night I was a bitchy basket case, I didn’t even want to talk to Joel, I just wanted to sit.  Aidan is convinced his baby brother is growing inside me and nothing would make me happier – who knows.  
But exhausted or not there is joyous work to do and I am wondering again how I survive winter, locked indoors and no sweat on my brow.
I adore my spring garden, especially my “woodland garden” – photos to come at naptime.  

(How many times have I promised THAT!)

    ENJOY your time outside! I’s therapy for you! And the rewards….YUMMM! Whether it’s flowers or vegetables, it’s too good to miss! I’m heading out to mow our lawn before it starts raining: rain is forecast for three days in a row. I wish it weren’t too early to put in our veggie garden, but we have to wait until later in May! Enjoy that sunshine while you can!

    Hmmm…really tired and cranky…that’s always my first thought:). I really need to get out in the garden today, too. Have a great day!

    No rain here yet, but I was so exhausted from the last 3 days in the gardens, that I had to take a break.
    Went to the greenhouse and bought seed potatoes! Never planted ’em before, so this will be an experiment. Bought 3 teeny rosemary plants too. Sure hope they grow up to be big and strong! I use a LOT of rosemary.

    I’ve always wanted a woodlawn garden… I can’t wait for you to share yours 🙂
