It's been stormy this week in Indiana, but the sun comes peeking through between showers. Kind of like my life right now.
Sorry I've been AWOL lately ... spring break, Easter company, and exhaustion from the new job training program conspired to keep me stuck in the "real" world. But things are beginning to settle a bit.
This weekend is supposed to be sunny, so I'm hoping to make some serious progress on the yard and maybe get the veggie patch tilled up. We still haven't started the seeds we bought, though it looks like we could have. The weather seems to have turned early this year. I want to try planting by the moon this time around, but may have to settle for whenever we can get around to it. Again with that sucky "real world" thing.
We ordered some saplings from the state conservation district, and we pick them up next weekend. We chose redbuds, swamp oaks, and a native plum, plus a packet of native wildflower seeds. It's a great program - you should check with your own state to see if they do something similar. Now I just need to decide where they will go.
I can't tell you what a relief it is to see new life again, and how excited I am to finally be able to get out and grub around in the dirt. Hope spring has sprung for all of you by now!
