It wasn't the easiest of weekends. There were overgrown lawns to mow, weeds to pull out, manure to use, a trailer of mulch for the trees, school aprons and teatowels to add to the normal washing load. Not to mention our first auction..but more on that later. Just to top it off we had our first really hot day.
But in the end most of it did get done. Not without wondering if a suburban block might have been just a little easier. Sometimes, particularly in Spring and Summer, things can become a little overwhelming around here.
But we need to remind ourselves that although there is so much more to do, we did indeed get quite a bit done. It is hard work, but there is a good, useful feeling to working together. Teaching the kid's basic skills about gardening and all learning along as we go. Of course that nice chilled bottle of wine at the end of the day didn't go astray.
There is always so much more to do, but sometimes we need to step back and see how things were not all that long ago.
