Life is spinning in so many directions at the moment. Some good, some not so good, all of it leaving me reeling for some peace. I'm in the process of finishing up details for our next Whole Food Kitchen session, but need just a few more days before I can release that.
With so much going on, and my inability to focus on work, I created a small retreat for myself yesterday. It didn't cost any money, took practically zero brain power (bliss), and I was able to sip chai and balance a few important family texts and phone calls during the process (perhaps that last part was not very retreat-like, but you take what you can get). I felt productive yet relaxed - a little creative, even. Just what I needed, work will still be there tomorrow.
What did I do during my spontaneous mini-retreat? Well, I created a one page blog resource containing all the gardening related posts I've written since living on this property. Such an activity may not sound very zen-like, but it felt pretty good to me as I bounced between looking at garden images from the past three years, while simultaneously planning/coordinating various family details. We may still have nearly two feet of snow on the ground, but spring is definitely in the air and my urge to get out in it is insatiable. I ordered potato seed yesterday but that wasn't enough, I looked around for a little more gardening related work. Our seeds are planted in trays by the window, and the remainder of our seed packets are fairly organized. Without much else to do given the abundance of snow, I decided to take to the blog and spruce things up for springtime.
Before we head over to the new resource page, please note the my style of writing garden posts is merely to journal our way through the season. I'm not an expert gardener, and I do not offer a lot of "how to" type posts, but I hope there is still plenty of info and inspiration to be had. If nothing else, it's organized! Without further ado, welcome to our garden.
