I'm off work until June, so I started right in on my list of things to do outside-- and in two days (with some help from neighbors), I have accomplished quite a lot!
This is especially great, because I don't feel as if I am drowning this year at all. I really feel its starting to come together--garden and house wise. It's not perfect, and perhaps it will never be perfect, but it's all mine. And that's what counts. :)
