I had to stop gardening, and come and write a few lines. Today I feel good , I know I got a lot to do to sort out my life but today I feel good. I spent the day moving dirt buying plants for our garden and there is something to be said about working in the dirt, it is cathartic. I know that my mood will change again but I had to share this. I hope you guys are having a good day and that I can pass on some of my upbeat feelings.
Take care, Tone

tone, thanks for passing that on. I too get a lot out of working in my yard. I am no gardener, by a long stretch, maybe someday. Being outside and digging in the dirt, mowing raking, playing in my water garden, not only brings me joy, but also relieves alot of stres from the day and week. My property can be so overwhelming at times, that I have to break things down into smaller projects to get things done. But when I'm done with each, I look at it and am pleased with what I see and have accomplished, no matter how small. Also it tires me out and I sleep well that nite. Yes it is very cathartic and therapeutic for me. Thanx for drawing my attention to this.
