“I have learned that the greater part of one’s misery or happiness
Is determined not by one’s circumstances but by one’s disposition.”
The last few days I have been busy, working outside in my yard. Last weekend while in town we stopped by a couple local nurseries just to see what they may have and in both cases we fell upon the day when their new shipments had come in plus a nice sale was going on at the same time. Needless to say I took advantage of the situation and purchased the bulk of my intended plants for the season. In doing this I was faced with the task of getting them all in the ground at the same time. Usually I try and stretch them out a bit so that I will not be too overwhelmed. Plus the rains were to start by the later part of the week so I wanted even more to have them planted.
Yesterday I finished planting the last of them. Now this is a feat in itself really. In the past I have not been as quick to get all my purchased plants into the ground at such an efficient rate. Vincent has had a couple of surprise days off from work so today we are going to enjoy the remainder of the day with a nice ride on the Harley. It seems to be a nice reward for working so hard the first half of the week.
Tomorrow the rains begin and all the many tasks that I have to tend to inside will get some much needed attention. Yet for today, I think I am going to relax… and enjoy myself a little… Hope you take a few moments and do the same.
