Sigh. Good sigh.
When I need a breath these days, I find myself sneaking outside (or wrangling the girls and giving them water and dirt to keep them busy while I try to be...me) to dig; sit in the yard, pull a few weeds and just be...outside.
It feels so nice, it relaxes me and somehow, fulfills me. I love seeing the changes in the garden this time of year, something new everyday. Some how, my veggie patch (which usually thrives, is not doing stellar this season), but my flowers are going strong.
It is our fifth year in our home, some of my first plants are getting really big, my cecile bruner is so big I've gotta build it some thing to climb! And something that I thought was lost came back, after two years, my orange Calla Lilly's are back (which was an extra happy surprise since it is our wedding flower.)
This years new berry patch is doing great...I don't know about the raspberries they look a little
What do you do for yourself, with or with out kids, to stay happy and to feel like yourself?
