I think I am finally finished with the edging. Hooray!! I should stop and treat myself to something I love to celebrate that success (if I am following my own advice that is).
The lines are good and the bricks are somewhat packed in (as much as I can with my body weight). I had some spare fill dirt/topsoil for another project that I used to fill in either side of the trench. I could spend hours more using the hammer and 2 by 4 I have to really pack that dirt in, but not now. I’ve spent way too much time already. At this moment, I am really done with looking at the edge, contemplating the edge, working on the edge, and it has, quite literally, put me “on the edge”.
I think when I go to plant the spring bulbs I’m planning, that will be another opportunity to go methodically through the line and do more. We will see if that actually comes to pass. Right now, I need to turn my attention to some other things that I have neglected over the past week.
It is a good thing that I am a “list” person. Everything that I have thought of or come across that I know I was not going to be able to get to has gone on the list. I probably have ten items that need attention at this point. Luckily all of them are going to be quick. Some phone calls and a few things online.
I expect that I’ll be caught up by the end of the weekend as long as I don’t get distracted by any more gardening projects. I couldn’t help but buy a few more things from the Home Depot clearance section and will want to figure out what to do with them soonish.
As I noted yesterday, the writing and blogging is something I have not been doing as much of in the last few days and I’m hoping to spend some time on a few different topics. I’ve been eating a little better, sleeping a little better, and am getting ample exercise and have not compromised those things and I’ve got some thoughts on all of it. I also have some more thoughts about relationships and my picture of that and connections with people is constantly evolving.
Once again the kids will be home from school soon so I am going to cut this off now and be ready to switch to “mom” mode.
