It has been a long time since I had more that one day with nothing scheduled. I have had to remind myself numerous times to relax. I have had a lovely run, a hike on the trail that was a bit warmer than I was expecting, a bit of sewing, a frustrating evening with a knitting project that had to be put aside (I really need a simpler project), and plenty of time to sit on the deck with my book. And there was some good progress made on the travel planning – just 5 weeks now.
On Sunday I decided to tackle my little whimsy garden bed. I created this space a few years ago with some fun garden art using tea cups and pots that have little cracks and breaks. I have not been successful with plantings. I found some large pots that I will fill dirt and add some flowers. I am hoping that having them up, off the ground, will keep the rabbits from snacking on the leaves. We will see. I do know that I want to get back in the garden more often – a great way to melt away stress.
It has been a lovely, long weekend.
