Sometimes you just need country music. And wine. Country music reminds you where you came from, that life is supposed to be simple, and that chivalry is not dead. Wine makes you smile while you write a sleepy blog at midnight, reminiscing about the greater things in life.
I only like to sit down to write, when I feel like I have something important to say. Even in my wine drinking, country music listening state….I think I do ;)
I have been gardening. That makes me feel like an old lady. Those ladies have something I don't. It's called wisdom. And gosh, gardening makes you feel wonderful. You are literally getting down to the roots. So liberating. There is just something magical about tearing out horrible, nasty crabgrass (for HOURS). And creating something beautiful to put in its place. In my case that would be vegetables, and "thlowers" as Chloe calls them.
I got to spend the day watching my baby talk to roly poly's, worms, and snails. Watch her strip down to a diaper as she got mud and water on each article of clothing she was wearing. I got to remember the days when a hose could entertain for hours. I love this life. I love spring. It always makes me feel new. Second chances feel like they are all over the place, just waiting to be grabbed….or grasped, or ridden on. And who doesn't need a second chance now and then...
