"And while seeming to be busy with my sum..." ~ Jane Eyre
This elongated winter weather has frozen my hands at the keyboards and I wish to thaw as the ground outside has, for the warm breezes and daffodils ground my soul. There are many lovely things growing around here of late, so this is a piece of my garden...
~ My Jack is becoming a beanstalk who grows each day from a baby to a little person. I am kept in awe as we plant seeds of words and ideas and actions in his head that he retains and projects out. His vocabulary is advanced, of course, and his curiosity blooms as big as a sunflower does on a hot August day. A few days ago we took a walk together and I had to hold him back since he was trying to chase a squirrel, calling after it!
~ I keep my resumes for various applications divided into packets like ones that contain seeds. Some plants are slow to grow, but the continual brightness I feel as I send them out and the waterfall of opportunities are flourishing. No word yet from interviews, as I am realizing that corporate is as slow as a snail sliding along in a garden! Still, I know I will be rooted elsewhere shortly in complete content.
~My spring cleaning inside and out has lead me to think about setting up a raised garden in my backyard this year. After cleaning and setting out my patio furniture and barbecue, I thought about how nice it would be to grow some herbs and vegetables. As much as I dislike raw tomatoes, growing them to make into sauce to place into jars at the end of the summer would be quite an enjoyable endeavor. Most of my free time in the past two days has been spent on the HGTV website reading about raised gardens and such.
~A new romance is budding, and it seems rather apropos that one of our first meetings was underneath the arch in Washington Square Park, where Harry met Sally...or rather, where he met Amy. How often does one find a man who loves nero d'avola as much as you do? I find myself drawn to him despite my jadedness and apathy towards romance of late, and he brightens my day since he is the kind of person whose wit is so great that he makes you laugh until it hurts.
