THE LAST TWO WEEKS--CATCH UP...
On this beautiful Saturday morning, I'm alone here at the farm, watching the mockingbird as she balances on branch of the small maple tree across the driveway and sings to her heart's content! The songs of other birds echo her joy and enthusiasm for life, and I'm inspired to get outside and take in the morning with them.
Since my last post, I've spent most of my time at home outside, mowing the grass and putzing around. Tom and I have a huge garden below the barn that's beginning to show signs of life, and the beds down by the barn are producing great greens and onions. I made a salad last night with the first of the spinach and bibb lettuce, and it was scrumptious!
In addition, I've put in some dahlia bulbs, stuck the plants I started from seed into the ground, and mowed some more. So, in terms of major news flashes, the word from the farm is that this double Virgo has had her hands and feet in the Earth and has been LOVING it!
What else?? Let's see... I went to the annual OU Ceramics Department"Brat Off" and hung out with some really neat folks, celebrated Tom's graduation party here at the Farm, have hungout with LoriBeth, (who's here before she nannies for Nickelback on tour this summer - how cool is that??), had some great time with Joe and his friends, Mary and Carrie.....all good farm family stuff..I miss Samuel, Eliza (who's at her dad's now), and Bobbi, but we'll have our time together at the beach in a few weeks.
I am grateful for my life. I really love my life, and I love all those who are such an integral part of life here at home, at The Farm, beyond words.
