Earth Day 2009

The weather has been gorgeous and we spent much of the past week in the yard. My husband and I both had time off work giving us an impromptu stay-cation. We elected to tackle overdue garden projects. Of course we’re building our chicken coop (my part of the “we” is a very loose interpretation; I fed the people who were laboring and paused on occasion to snap a photo or two). “We” are also building a pizza oven. The actual pizza oven was purchased in 2006 and proceeded to spend the past three years in our garage. Our cars subsequently spent the past three years in the driveway. It’s about time we got to work.

Me, I’m altering our sprinklers to fit our raised beds (another long overdue project) and am putting soaker hoses in my flower beds. I also bought vegetable seeds to start indoors. In addition I engaged in a battle with the pine tree in the backyard. It’s a game we play ... he drops needles and I pick them up. This week I’m ahead. Next week remains to be seen.

I’m thrilled to see these projects come to fruition. Plus it keeps my mind off other things such as my heart. So long as I’m working my it doesn’t bother me. When I stop I notice the irregular beats. The holter results are still pending. I guess I just need to stay busy until the results come in. Tomorrow it’s back to work ... staying busy ought to be easy.

Happy Earth Day!
