In honor of "fits and starts"--including the near-six-month blog hiatus (where does the time go?!), I give you some pictures of our summer garden.
For a recovering black thumb on the first go, I think the results weren't too bad! We got some zucchini, oodles of little tomatoes, some beans, broccoli and wild rocket out of our little patch.
Eventually, though, some sort of disease came through and hit our tomato plants and gophers wanted to share in our veggie feast. We ultimately wound up taking out the plants and the ground is still "resting" (aka, we haven't bought seeds yet :) )--ready for the next crop.
We just found out recently that we will get to rent this home at least through the holidays, which is good news for us. In the meantime, we might plant a new crop of winter veggies, and prepare our home for the upcoming holiday festivities. Our family will all be here and we are excited to share the time with them.
Life is currently a series of fits and starts--waiting to hear back about this or that, making important decisions for the future with just a little information, things needing to be fixed followed the odd windfall and generosity of friends and family, expectations or hopes fallen short, then others exceeded-- one step back followed by two or three small steps forward. The challenge? Maintaining the perspective of living each moment fully and learning from and enjoying the journey.
Hello friends, I hope you are well. I hope you are enjoying your journey.
