It's Sunday. I'm not going to do anything," I said to the Husband, invoking the rule of Mama. Sometimes after Sunday breakfast, Mama talked herself into not feeling guilty about taking a day off from working in the garden. So, I think.
Why did I even say that? Every day is a day off. And, most days feel like a Sunday. As it went, I chose to rake leaves in the South Room.
Molly couldn't decide if she wanted to sit in the sun outside while I worked or sit in the sun indoors. She eventually settled for the latter. The Husband came out to help move, fetch, toss, and pick up in the yard. We also surveyed the best locations to grow our crops of a single this, a couple of that, and a few of these vegetable or herb plants. I'm looking forward to that. The last time the Husband and I took care of our own vegetable garden was in the late 1990s, and that was for only a couple of years.
As some of you know, the backyard has naturally divided into four rooms. The sunny room is where our tiny farm will be. The Shady and North End rooms currently look like an overgrown forest floor.
The South Room has bones to be a cozy room for visiting, napping, reading, and such like how it looks in my drawing that I mentioned in my last post. While raking leaves there, I opened my mind to making the space even more comfy cozy than it was this summer. The rocking chair will definitely go back into the space. The bench may be replaced by an old loveseat recliner that's just getting dusty doing nothing in the garage. And, of course, more flowers and succulents everywhere.
I bet you know where I'm going today. Yup, All Seasons and Mosaic Monday. Come join me.
