Besides Lala staying in bed...what else is happening around the house these days? The gardens are waking up which means I'm getting ready to put the pedal to the metal because it's time to work hard out there. This past weekend we worked in the gardens transplanting raspberries and blueberry bushes before the rains came. I was back raking my client's garden and lawn on Monday. My muscles are waking up. I feel that familiar soreness that comes when I get back to work after the less strenuous winter months. Other things are waking up around the house as well.
Good morning! My girl, Una, or Lala as we like to call her around here, has the right idea. She stays in bed, snuggled under the covers on these cool, drizzly,spring days. I would've liked to have stayed by her side this morning. Last night we celebrated Passover with another couple and their kids. Let me just say, I'm paying
the price for those "four glasses of wine" you are supposed to drink during the ritual dinner.
This week, the gray, drizzly days, have been a blessing. I'm not working at the poster shop because of the Holidays. So, I get to work at home on the projects here that are taking up so much time. I am planning to study and travel in Central Europe this July and August. I am going to Poland and Hungary to study the folk art of these two countries plus I will meet family in Poland, stay with friends in Hungary and visit the villages where my grandmother and grandfather's families lived before they came to America. I can't wait to share more about my upcoming adventure with you. For now the planning for this trip is taking up a lot of time and I have it this week! I'm reluctant to work in the rain in the gardens too so I can happily bask in the glow of my computer with a warm cup of coffee by my side...a little calm before the storm. Next week I will be in PA visiting family and working. The first week of May I'm off...back to the garden work.
