It's Been A Nice Day.

Went into my backyard today. Last time I was there was last Sunday, when Big Sister wheeled me out. Today I did it with the walking frame which was tricky and probably a bad idea, but hey no one died. I even got over the grassy area to the clothesline, although the paths on my actual garden are way too dicey so the roses are out of reach for a while longer.

I am so going to miss my garden. I really hope it's just a case of moving on to a new garden, and not having to learn to live with another loss - this one being that of access to dirt and all that comes with it.

Yeah, I know I'll survive without one. I know I know. I know I can survive just about anything and that I will adapt as necessary - but I'd really rather not. I'd rather just have a garden, thanks.


It's been one of those lovely days where life seems full of promise and meaning. Doesn't mean I got much done, of course, but it's a great improvement on recent days when I've gotten not much done *and* felt miserable and stressed.


And it's over too soon! Maybe tomorrow during the day I'll do all those things I was planning to do tonight.


Incidentally, more people should see Parks And Rec. It's funny, watch it!

I do hope you get at least a small garden to love. Even a patio can be a garden.

I'm SO glad it was a lovely day...you can't imagine how glad!

Yes you can survive - but just surviving is not much of a life. I hope that even if a proper garden isn't possible for a while that there is enough space that you can set up some sort of `portable' garden. It is quite clear that having growing things around is very good for your mental health.

I'm so glad you are enjoying P and R - don't you just love Ron Swanson!

I really hope you're able to have another garden in some form. They're so healing.

Parks and Rec is my favorite show on TV. So glad to hear more people are watching it! :D
