This past week has been a complete blur I tell you. Busy is in the air. Whether I like it or not.
When I start to feel a little (a lot) overwhelmed, I tend to initially go backwards instead of forwards – and what I mean by that is initially I complain, I kick and I scream and I pout about what’s making me busy. But eventually an “aha” moment knocks me in the head and I realize it’s time to get ‘er done. (And to be clear, I’m not referring to anything major here, just the everyday kind of busy, the kind that piles up if you start to ignore it, the not so fun kind.)
Sometimes all it takes is a little fluttering around the house picking up things here and there and accomplishing completely random and unrelated tasks (writing them on a sheet of paper with a line crossed through them after the fact feels incredibly therapeutic too by the way).
What does being busy have to do with my garden you may be thinking? A lot. Being busy has meant that I haven’t been really hanging out with my garden a whole lot lately. And I don’t recommend it one bit.
It felt good to be outside (although my allergies are a killer this week) and experience garden progress. Now that’s something I highly recommend.
What’s your garden update? Are you getting planning one? Getting started this weekend? Still thinking about it?
