I have been trying to gather up some motivation to get out in my yard. We have a gazebo that was always a bit of an oasis for us that we spent a lot of time in…especially the past two summers. I always looked forward to getting it all set up for the summer. Usually as soon as I thought it was done snowing I would be out there getting the roof and the walls up…planting my pots…enjoying evenings or early mornings by the fire table. This year I look out at my yard and all I see is a long list of “stuff” to do….either by myself or bugging the boys to help me.
I finally went out this afternoon for a little bit. The roof on the gazebo is worn out. I threw it away. So now I’m going “topless” for the summer. My next door neighbor chuckled when I told him that. I decided to leave all my pots for Anna to plant when she’s home for the summer. I did put some seeds out for the birds and made sure to fill up the peanut feeder for the blue jays. Jason gets a kick out of watching them. I put out my hummingbird feeder on Sunday and have had a pair busy humming back and forth. And that’s as far as I got. I didn’t even walk around my gardens at all. It’s just all too much and very overwhelming. I guess what doesn’t get done just doesn’t get done….but I made a little progress today.
