Good Morning

IMG_8132When I re-read these words in six months or a year or two, I won’t believe that I was up before seven. Me? Really? Are you sure you aren’t fabricating a wild tale? Maybe in Six months I’ll still be rising prior to seven, though once the working days, getting up at six will be mandatory.

As I look around my yard, my house, I feel grateful that this is my life. (I’m trying to ignore the tall grass and blackberries that need to be cleared out or they’ll take over the hillside I worked hard at reclaiming a few years ago. The proverbial Whack-A-Mole with yard work.IMG_8135

Strawberries continue to grow and spread out. Today might be a good day to tell the IMG_8136trailers, the vines, seeking to claim space for another plant, that they can’t grow in my path.

The small sunflower was an unexpected gift. I had noticed a few plants growing in my large mound of new soil delivered by Rexius, and this sunflower was one. IMG_7136Knowing that Sylvia’s tractor would soon be taking another bite out of the soil, I had to at least transplant the sunflower.

Sometimes the unexpected can bring sunshine into my life.IMG_8021
