So much opportunity!

So little energy.

Rest assured, though. What energy I DO find, I sure don't let it slip through my fingers.  Nosirree.  Alas, all of it cannot be spent pell-mell in the gardens.  Yesterday I managed to get caught up on the laundry AND (finally finally finally!) sowed annual seeds down in the basement on the heat tray.  (That chore should have been done at the beginning of the month, but a gal can only do what a gal can do.)

This morning I am pleased to be not weak and shaking, although a bit tired after yesterday.  Even so I've written up an ambitious list of chores.  I'll make myself do the shopping stuff first - that always wipes me out so I can't leave it for later. 

No worries about the rest on the list.  With a weather forecast like this, I certainly don't have to cram fun gardening projects into just a couple of days.   Easy does it, is my new motto.  A STUPID motto.  But one I'll have to stick with for now.

This April has been SO much better (weatherwise) than last: cooler temps and just over 4" of rain spread out over all 4 weeks.  Hopefully summer will be equally temperate as compared to last year's heat and drought.  Fingers crossed!  :-D


  1. The weather is so different this year....except we are having another cool snap for the next three days with nights in mid 30's and highs just in the 50's......

    I am a list maker too; somehow it helps. You have a good attitude do what you can and don't worry about the rest. There will be another day.
    I work in much shorter spurts that I used to....I hate it but it is what it is.

    1. Sounds like you are 'enjoying' the same lousy reverse Spring we had last year - warm March, frigid frozen April. Hope May settles out for you.

  2. I'm glad you're feeling better! What did you sow?
