It's good to understand where you are standing/ And it's good to know where you been/ And it's good to work through the tough times/ And let the lessons start to creep in/ I know we're able to let go of more baggage/ Than we give ourselves credit for/ And the sunrise sayin' hello in the morning time/ Makes me believe that more and more
In the sunshine, we have been working on getting to know our garden. The previous owners of the house were excellent gardeners, and amassed an amazing collection of plants, but we have been wanting to make the garden our own since we moved in last fall. Finally, on Sunday, we started! With a little help and encouragement from a friend of LB's family, we dug up the plants from a section of the garden, added a little compost, and put in some new veggies.
Here you see our new tomatoes, onions, basil, and the bok choy we relocated from the front yard. Ignore the old, rusty wheelbarrow in the background, please.
Gardening has proven to be a very satisfying, comforting way to distract myself from the fact that I STILL HAVEN'T OVULATED. Nor have any of the OPKs I've been peeing on showed any sign of impending ovulation. Grrr.
LB pointed out that, the last time my cycle was thrown off by stress, the next cycle was also really weird and long. I'm hoping that's all that is happening here, and at the same time, thinking about asking for an opinion from my Dr. if nothing happens soon.
I'm letting something in and I'm letting something go/ And I'm so thankful to be alive/ Right now time is passing slowly/ But I'm thoroughly enjoying this drive
