Sunday

There is snow today, but temperatures in the seventies by the end of the week.

I am glad I have work to do, both inside and out. We spent the afternoon yesterday cleaning up the herb garden, pulling up spent seed heads, cutting back the butterfly bush.

Prayer
–Galway Kinnell

Whatever happens. Whatever
what is is is what
I want. Only that. But that.

I like that prayer. Few words, but thoughtful ones ...

That is

my kind

of prayer.

This snow is not my kind of weather.
This is more like whether (or not).

With a quick 6-12 inches of snow predicted for tonight, I fear we won't be getting in the garden for awhile :(

We got a little snow, too, and I am so eager to get out in the yard and work.

I wish I could want what is.

But what is is not what I want.

Because what is is more snow! Lots more! When does it end? Glad you are getting your hands in the dirt!

Snow! That's unusual for you isn't it?
But how nice to be looking forward to warmer weather.

Chilly here, too! I'll think of this when the heat hits come May!

Hope you have a good day!

I don't envy you the snow but we too have started bringing the garden back into operation. I've bought tomato plants to get us started but have also planted a few heritage varieties (seed) I'll be so glad to be finished with Winter.
