Slightly off course

I needed a break from tax schedules and constant ream of numbers running through my head, so I headed outside with our dog Cody. Well, one thing led to another, a little pick-up, a run out the back fence. The next thing I knew, I had a rake in my hand!!!!!

It felt wonderful, the fresh air, the manual exertion compared to wrestling with papers & numbers. Some parts of the back is still covered with snow & ice, but I did manage to get most of the snow mould areas raked and they look much better. I also added a lots of wet leaves to my compost...we got snow well before all the leaves had dropped. What a difference an hour cam make in the overall picture. I can't wait to get out there again today!

I heard Martha Stewart once say that she never says she 'works' in her garden. She can't call something that she loves that much,'s a pleasure! I concur! Have a great weekend everyone. We are off to what may be the Fort Saskatchewan Traders last home game. They are down 3-1 in the AJHL finals. The team's new home town will be St Albert, beginning the 07/08 season.

I miss having a yard and a garden. Maybe someday soon! Hope you had a great weekend.

Why don't you join Bliss & I in our SAL. The coming months have the best light for stitching on black.

Ahhh... tax day... Gotta love it. I work for a CPA firm, know all about the stresses. ;) I'm looking forward to the weather getting nicer so I can do a bit of gardening myself.
