What is that round yellow thing? Is that... could it possibly be? SUNSHINE?
After a long, wet spring-ter (the season after Christmas that is never really one or the other) we may FINALLY be seeing a little summer foreshadowing in the Pacific Northwest! I am SOOO happy! Today I came home from work and thinned my garden, planted flowers, weeded and watered... all in an hour! I never have that sort of energy! I'm actually sitting here thinking about what else I can do this weekend in the yard. =)
I used to hate yard work. I was not an "outdoor" kid. I would have rather stayed inside reading a book than hang out in the garden helping my dad plant tomatoes, but I have recently discovered that something changes when it's YOUR yard. Suddenly, I'm concerned about how tall the grass is, and how many weeds are in the garden. I am thinking about all the things I'd like to do with the landscaping and what kind of vegetables I want to plant in my garden. I am no longer satisfied spending time inside reading a book. I want to be outside with my gardening gloves on DOING something.
When did I become a grown up?
