A suddenly typical late spring morning in Colorado. It wears on a person’s nerves. My garden is growing like crazy. I have to pull weeds every single day! I don’t mind 🙂 It is strange to go outside and feel humidity. I really like the sunny crisp normal semi-arid climate of Colorado, and I am certain it will return. Then I will complain about drought.
I spent all day Saturday in a church basement working on an icon. I may be close to finishing it. Then I will choose another to get done by November when we will be having a “show” in the library of the (Jesuit) university of which I am an alumni. This is an exciting thing.
Yesterday I found pickling cucumber plants at a local garden shop. I planted those just beneath a trellis I used to have honeysuckle growing on. I also planted an acorn squash plant. I love, love, love watching my garden grow. With silver belles, and cockle shells, and pretty maids all in a row!
My workouts are going well. I particularly love the little yoga I am doing each morning on my deck. I bought a privacy screen to go across the railings, so I now have some lovely privacy from my neighbors. I did not go out this morning, 43 is too cold for me, and the deck is sopping wet.
I’m looking forward to another week. I have a huge project at work and I am enjoying it. This will be the first day since last Wednesday that I won’t be at a church for one reason or another. Maybe I can be full of church, and the world won’t disturb me so much? God can do that. I certainly can’t.
So, as we say in AA, I think I’ll let him!
