Are you like me and constantly on the go? I mean I am constantly on a schedule. There is just so much to plan and do and enjoy…
But every once in a while, usually dictated by my body shouting that it has had enough, it is necessary to recharge.
Today was that day for me. Life has been pretty full for us lately, all good, but it has me rather run down. I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to rest today, and really enjoy my garden (after a few chores, of course!).
What I really wanted today was a nap; but between the sunshine, and the neighbouring farmer working his field, that was just not happening. So I did a few jobs that have been on my list:
- Turned over a new flower bed.
- Turned over the compost.
- Marked with stones the hyacinth before they fade away.
After those jobs were done, then I sat in the grass and watched, and listened, and simply enjoyed the garden.
Wow, what a feeling that was. It was kinda strange because I really and truly have a hard time sitting and relaxing. The weather was definitely a huge help. We have had very sunny, warm and simply perfect days.
I hope that you are able to take some time out to enjoy all that is around you, too.
You may have sat and enjoyed your garden but it also sounds like you did a lot of work in it as well. 😀
Hi Karen, I’m hoping that someday I will allow myself to just sit, without any pre-working required! One step at a time 🙂
