Just as a sunny day brings us joy...
a rainy day has its own benefits.
It gives us the opportunity to slow down, relax,
chew our cud,
and ponder life's bigger questions.
A rainy day brings a feast of fresh worms...
just ask any chicken.
To an early spring garden, it's a necessity for germinating seeds.
The only thing up at this point in the spring garden is the Rhubarb!
(in its bed of weeds😉)
The greenhouse is abuzz with all sorts of life emerging.
I'm not sure if our local garden centers are open these days...
so having started my own seedlings has been reassuring for me.
(I may end up with extra tomato plants to share with friends...
I think I planted about a hundred seeds... which have ALL germinated!)
The lettuce and kale really need to be transplanted into the garden... very soon!
The ground was too soggy for pasture grazing, yesterday,
so everyone stayed in for the day.
These guys can tear up a soggy pasture in no time... running and bucking.
These two wouldn't think of creating divots in the pasture.
They tread very lightly on the soggy ground...
after all, they hate getting any mud on their little hooves.
I took advantage of the rainy day and did a major overhaul
of my sewing room.
Sadly, I forgot to take a photo of the "before" state of things.
(actually, I probably subconsciously didn't want
you to see what a mess I had created)
|(I found this old wedding gown at an outdoor antiques market years ago)|
What you cannot see in these photos is how well I organized every drawer
in my sewing desks...
and everything that lives behind these closet doors.
Yarn is now organized by size and fiber content.
I have so much leftover yarn from other projects,
that I need to come up with a project to use them all.
Perhaps I will knit a patchwork blanket.
Having everything organized and clean makes this room so
peaceful and relaxing.
It'd be a shame to mess it up with a new project!
Having this time being sequestered at home has not been wasted.
I suspect that by the time all of this is over,
I will have cleaned out and re-organized every square inch of this house...
something I might not have ever had the chance to do, otherwise.
I am keeping a positive attitude and hoping for the best...
for all of us.
Be well, friends!
