I don't know how other people celebrated the first official day of Spring but, I started prepping for my garden. I consider it a celebration because, up until Hugh sketched the design for my raised beds, I wasn't convinced that there would be a garden. It is a long-running joke in our household that the key to any Hugh Project is the official napkin sketch.
It was a great way to spend the first weekend of Spring. It was also my attempt to start to live by a quote that I read recently: Use your weekends to create the life you wish to live, not to escape the life you are living.
That's some great advice there.
On a side note: my Mom is in the hospital back home. She's ok; she had a reaction to an antibiotic that she started taking recently, but, prayers are always appreciated. Also, I can't wait until we get her moved over here so that we can be better caregivers as well as having her here to enjoy things like this garden. She deserves that.
Secondary side note: Queen B and the Rodeo Princess are smack dab in between the fires that are raging in Texas. They have an evacuation plan and they are taking it seriously, so I am maintaining my calm. If you are the praying type and haven't already said one for Texas, please think about doing so. My mama heart would be grateful.
