Sorry for the crickets yesterday… I know I usually have something on Thursdays, but frankly I was just exhausted from a very busy week! It’s funny to me when people call and reach out asking if everything is okay if I miss a day of blogging — guess that means I’m somewhat predictable? Ha, ha! I assure you, everything is just fine here!
In fact, it’s better than fine. We’ve hit that springtime spot where energy abounds. Suddenly I’m organizing, cleaning in a frenzy, and doing lots of yard work. It’s great, but very tiring, and at the end of the day, I’m spent, with no more energy left to come up with a new blog post.
The good things that happened this week? Hanging out with friends, learning to do turns in ballet (harder than they look, I get so dizzy!), getting lots done around the house, starting our compost pile back up for the season, cleaning up the garden beds, and even getting the cool weather plants started in our garden: lettuces, kale, spinach, carrots, radishes, garlic, and some herbs (though we had sage and thyme come up on its own already, and of course mint even though we pull it all up every year!). I think it’s going to be a good growing season as long as we stay on top of the pests. This time I’m trying to include more native plants that will attract beneficial insects, as well as natural mosquito and tomato horn worm repellents. Every day, even though I know it’s unlikely, I catch myself looking out into the dark still garden patch hoping to see little green sprouts coming up. Soon!
Hope your weekend is full of all kinds of spring goodness! And watch out for those April Fool’s jokes today.
