We are totally focused on maintaining the landscape around the pond. Last year we didn't spend much time out there except relaxing and watching fish as we went through the grieving process when Terry's dad died. We spend as much time working around it as we can now, but hot and humid days and rainy days limit us. Then when the sun comes back out and the humidity subsides we find the weeds have taken over again. It a cycle, but adding mulch has helped to keep it down some.
If you have been a blog friend you might remember that I suffer from depression. Though I take medication, sometimes it overpowers the meds. I don't get despondent, but I do withdraw. That is what I have been going through recently. While I was recuperating from foot surgery, I did't spend ANY time in my "room". Dust collected. Since my home office and sewing room share space, filing accumulated as well. So self medication for my recent depression has sent me to my room to take it back over. I've been purging unnecessary paper files and records. It is so liberating to have a clear counter to work at.
I'll be posting more now. I may not have much to show as far as stitching goes right now, but since my blog is kind of my journal, I do have things to say. I really wish I could write in a paper journal, but no matter how many times I try to start one, I just can't make it happen.
What I am Grateful for at the moment: Doctors, Dogs and Dolls. More on THAT in a future post.
Tell me something today. Do you keep a journal? My friend Timaree keeps a WONDERFUL art journal. How has your weather been? Has it been hot and humid where you live? What are you sewing or stitching? Inquiring minds, you know!
