feeling kinda wishy washy today.
i have a long list but every time i go to start something
i wind up not doing it, and feeling weepy.
i chose the seeds (like lettuce marigold) that i can free seed
into the empty spaces of my garden
and put them in a nice basket with my gloves & mat
brought it out to the garden bench
then i came back in
i was too tired to start.
but i just got up!
see what emotional weariness can do?
“A spirit that is stricken makes the bones dry.” (Pr 17:22)
one nice thing i noticed this morning-
my dwarf peach tree has 4 tiny peaches on it!!!
this is the first year to fruit
and i realize if i get 1 of the 4 to maturity i will be doing well.
it has been in the ground 4 years
the first year the winter almost killed it
it took the next 3 years to recoup.
what i really wanted was some cherry trees
but up this far north it's hard to get a sweet cherry
that can make it thru -0's in zone 4
they are my fave fruit.
as soon as i get my mojo back
there are so many things i want to create
and work to completion (like my book!)
i am almost finished with a set of boy & girl
antique daygowns- just need closures in the backs
and i am certain that won't get done till
the morning of the baby shower! lol!
i did the hand work at the hospital while my friend
was having a many hour brain tumor removal surgery.
the boy one has a bunny embroidered in the front
centered between the tucks,
and the girl one has tiny flowers embroidered
on the bottom of each pintuck (28)
the recipients are best friends who found out
they are due a day apart. their children are bound to be
best friends too. sweet, isn't it?
but today i must do the garden
well, today and tomorrow.
i better check if i have the water turned on
to the garden (a series of hoses strewn across the lawn
from the house across the trickling stream
and over to the garden.)
i have a few recurred (self seeded) lettuces
ready to pick and will use them in a lunch salad.
now to think of which salad dressing to make...
and my chamomile self seeding went crazy
...of course in all the wrong places
but ready to begin picking,
along with some lemon balm & spearmint
all that i use for tea.
ok, i am talking about the garden too much
it's time to DO.
so i figured out a way to not be overwhelmed.
set the timer for 15 minutes
and do what i can.
then do it again later, etc.. till i have it handled.
that way i can come in and rest in between.
a trick i learned from flylady.com
keep on keeping on my peeps
