So, yesterday afternoon I got home with my plants and flowers to put in the garden and flower box. It wouldn't take long, maybe 30 minutes tops after planting and watering them. And then . . . I looked around and noticed the sidewalk and deck desperately needed to be swept. And then . . . I saw that the patio also needed to be swept. And then . . . I thought why not bring the two bigger dogs out and put them on leashes so that they could get some fresh air. And then . . . I started tearing up the lily of the valley that has been choked out by vines. Almost two hours later I finally made it back inside. When you start one thing, it often leads to something else that you see needs to be done. Everything needs to be taken in moderation though; otherwise, you burn out quickly. I really wanted to continue tearing up the lily of the valley patch but knew it was a project that would take a large chunk of time. So, I just got it started and it will be a gradual process before I can plant something else in its spot. And that's okay. Not everything needs to be done at once.
I'm a lover of life, an eternal optimist, and I have an intense desire to add value through simple living and positive vibes.
