Yesterday was a busy day but I knew I had to get those beds covered. Vince was going to get straw for the front beds but the farm supply store was out and said they should have more in a couple of hours. He called about 2 and they had just received their load of straw so we ran down there. It was supposed to rain at 3:00 but didn’t and I was out working til dark and Vince came out and he said “This is where you love to be, isn’t it?” Yes, no matter how tired I am, I go out to do a couple of things in the garden and I stay out there for hours.
Later last night, Vince said “It’s funny . . 40 years ago, a new dress and shoes to match made you happy. Now, all it takes is a bale of straw!”
He’s so right but if someone had told me this 40 years ago, I certainly would not have believed it. I like the me now much better than I think I would like the me from 40 years ago.
