i took this photo earlier this spring. who knew what a wet spring we were in for? i think mother nature has turned the spigot off and we’ve gone from april to july in 24 hours.
time to get busy in the garden.

i know it’s been ages since i’ve posted, so please accept my apologies.
this photo was taken june 2009 (i think). i’ve posted it before, i’m certain. it was taken at a fun party that some good friends and neighbors invited me to (well, 3 miles to the east, but in a rural area that’s still considered a neighbor). i like the way the tree reflects in the water, it’s so realistic. it makes me wonder; when i see my reflection, do i truly see myself? something to ponder.
if i haven’t been posting on the blog, just what have i been doing?
i’ve been watching it rain. a lot. the garden is mud. i can’t even step foot into it. i’ve been a bit anxious about getting the garden put out, but considering how many years i’ve planted a vegetable garden, i should realize that this is spring and sometimes you just have to wait. i always like to say mother nature likes to let us know who’s in charge.
i’ve also been reading. while my recent choice in books are not books i would highly recommend, they have kept me grounded in my voluntary simplicity/ anti-consumerism approach to life. something i would highly recommend is the norwegian film kitchen stories. charming, funny, and poigant all in one.
as far as local news goes, the abandoned grain elevator right across the road from me is no more. they are hauling off the rubble as i write this; so long, north windbreak! also, only 7 days of school left! weeeeeeeeeeeee! i found out that the dnr has finally admitted that there are wild cats in the area. the local farmers are not amused.
i hope that once school is out and the garden is planted, i’ll be back to posting on a regular basis.
hurry summer, i need you!
