So, it’s cold here! I haven’t been doing much outdoors. I decided yesterday it was high time to get some sun. Believe me, that decision was worth it! I went out into surprising 60 degree weather! Woohoo.
I raked leaves. I harvested a volunteer ivy (with an intriguing purple-red hue) and repotted it as a shrub. I walked into the little house, which smells much better right now. I turned the compost heap inside-out.
I also sat and listened. I let my eyes float from tree to leaf to bird. I felt the cool solidity of the stone underneath me. I breathed.
