Recently with the rain we have had here in Queensland, everywhere is just amazing. Surrounded by beauty everywhere you look. The gardens have just come to life with the recent rains and warm days. As we sit and enjoy our morning cuppa in the sunshine and enjoy our surroundings, we chat about the growth in the gardens and just how lucky we are to have what we do.
Before we moved to Esk, we would visit our block of land regularly. To mow the grass, to build a shed, move some rock, do some bird watching, to plant a tree or just come for a cuppa and enjoy the peace. I remember clearly when my husband said to me one day, “How will we ever get things done when we live here? It is so peaceful, and so nice just to sit and take it all in.” I remember that we laughed, thinking…….as if!!
Well as it turns out, he was right. Yes we get stuff done. No, never as much as we had planned. It turns out that it is really hard to motivate movement and action when everything is so peaceful around you. I’m spending more time on my little business, because I can look out of my office window while working. I feel that it is paying off too, as I see my orders coming in each day. But, as for the jobs we really need to address, well they are very slow to happen.
So we have made a pact. Tomorrow, we will rise early, cuppa and breakfast, then head straight to the garden. You see, while the plants have grown and look amazing, unfortunately so have the weeds. They seem to be encroaching into our peaceful zone. We are not too happy about this. I mean how can we avoid work, when there it is staring straight up at us when we are trying so hard not too work. That just doesn’t work for our zone.
Fingers crossed, hoping to get our boys out to help too. But, wow!!! That’s a pretty big ask. So, we shall see how that one pans out. We have visitors coming on Sunday, so we really have no choice. Tomorrow, we have to work, no if’s, but’s or maybe’s. It has to happen. So wish us luck as we venture out into the garden in the morning to achieve great things.
My wish for everyone today is…..
