It's wonderful what a sunny day can do to lift the spirit and the energy level.
After a siege of cold, wet days, we're warming up and drying out for a few days, up to 50° today!
This morning we ran errands and got some grocery shopping done, plus some puttering in the house. This afternoon I went for a two mile walk over to the park, by myself! Tom was working in the back yard, cutting up cedar tree prunings into fireplace wood.
He borrowed that limb saw from his sister and it makes for much easier work, except when he had to stop and reset the chain. That's what he was doing when I got back from my walk.
I got out my bucket seat and my primroses that Tom had purchased on the field trip last Saturday and and I actually planted something. Yay!
I can manage as long as my work surface is elevated. There is so much that I can't do yet so it feels good to be at least a little useful.
We bought this beautiful hellebore when we were out this morning, but Tom will have to plant it. I can't get down on the ground yet.
I found a sunny spot on the patio and sat for a while, asking Tom to take my photo before he got back to work.
He's back to making little piles out of big piles.
And I'm hoping for a few more days like this one!
