Reclaiming My Sanity

Last week, I posted about not having any time to garden.  I even came up with a plan.  No matter what, I told myself, I will leave work on time at least one day a week, so I can get more gardening in.

With this in mind, I diligently looked at the weather report.  Thursday looked like it would have decent weather, so I scheduled it in my planner.  (See how good I was being?)

Then my daughter’s conference got scheduled for Thursday afternoon.  No problem, I told myself.  I have a three-day weekend.

Except that I booked Friday for a day of shopping.  Halloween is just around the corner.

Well, I still had Saturday, and what a glorious day it was!

I spent most of it gabbing with a neighbor.  (Does it count if I was standing by the compost pile with a pitchfork in my hand?)

I already know today is a lost cause.  I might get out for an hour or so, but Sundays are devoted to laundry and other assorted household chores.

Nevertheless, I am much less stressed about my lack of time this week.  Maybe it is because it is sunny, maybe it is because my beans got harvested, or maybe it is because of this post over at Garden Rant.  (Yes, I realize it was written a while ago, but I just read it.  The lack of time thing, remember?)

I still do not have nearly as much time to garden as I would like, but I will continue to chip away at it when I can and learn to appreciate the progress that I do make — slow as it may be.

And this week, I will leave work early enough to garden — at least once.  Tomorrow looks like a nice day . . .
