Use the things you saved for a rainy day, on a rainy day.
Today is a rainy day. I am in danger of being trapped in my office this evening because I don’t want to get wet and it is quite heavy right now. It has drizzly and rainy all day, which is great for the garden and the water tanks but not great for the gardener or the view… we can’t even see the ocean!
But we need to be kind to ourselves and use the good stuff we put aside for later, for a reason to celebrate, or for something special or even for a rainy day. It’s normally the bottle of bubbly, the fancy soap or the sweet smelling candle. I have to say I don’t want to end my days with a mountain of these in my cupboards. Within every day can be found a reason to celebrate, some kind of silver lining, if you look really hard. Hopefully my silver lining today will be getting back into the house without getting wet! That is a win and I’ll take it as such. Not very gardeny but hey – its raining.
I’m still Making May Count but in the rain it looks different. It is computer gardening and a bit of screen gardening as I managed to soak in even more Chelsea Garden Show yesterday. It was very indulgent but it was still kinda gardening. There is just one more week of May and in the grand scheme of things that is still about a quarter of the month so no time for slacking.
Come again soon – rain or no rain, progress of some kind will be made.
