I love spring......
and starting my garden......
This winter was rough. It was cold and gray, as usual, but I allowed it to envelope me with sadness and hopelessness. I hate even admitting it. But, it happened. Christmas was always one of my favorite times of the year, but this year, the selfish consumerism that I saw this time was too much. I wanted to go to sleep and not wake until after the holidays. And I hate that.
What made me pull up my big girl pants and weather on through it, was my kid. He was happy. He was so excited. He loved everything about Christmas and that was the only beautiful part of it. He was my little anchor.
On to spring. The wind is starting to lay off a bit and I've started some seeds in my gallon milk jug greenhouses - trying something new.... I got the raised beds cleaned out and splurged on a hand tiller and am just chomping at the bit to get everything planted. This time of year definitely tests my patience....lol.
But! There is hope! The clouds have lifted....I have much to be thankful for and little to be sad about. I have such a good husband and he was so good to me through the season. I have such a cool little boy who is actually really, really funny and can always make me laugh and pushes me to see the positive in people and situations.
So, all that rambling and I just wanted to say how excited I am to get this spring and garden thing going! More pics to come!
