Yesterday it snowed a little. A light coating on the grass. Today the sun will shine and melt it all away, and Homer and I will continue to map out our year, to calculate and plan, to mentally hurry up our compost so we can add it to the soilless mix for our seedlings, to examine pens and salvage what we can, to prepare paperwork for accountant meeting for annual taxes, to get on getting planting beds built..there is more, during this, our "quiet" season.
And to remember to stop, relax and enjoy. To mimic the dog, who locates a sunny patch anywhere she goes, lies in it and rests before she gets back to the work she does here.
Rest. Physical, mental and spiritual. Daily. Good thing to do, even on days when it feels like an indulgence.
