In actuality the idea that the pace of my life has slowed is an illusion. I am now facing an extremely long list of things to do which I call the post-gala list and that does not include all the post-event follow-up, financials and on and on.
Mixed in with high season for gardening, I’m feeling swamped again. One item that needs to get moved to top three status for the spring and summer is house repair and painting. At the moment the top three for the month are training for the NYC marathon, garden work and home maintenance including cleaning.
I’m planning to run 3-5 miles but number one task is to plant the Mountain Bluets that were given to me by a neighbour. They are not that readily available in Toronto garden stores but are long-blooming and tolerate shade nicely. Our neighbour has the most lovely garden and I learned a lot about gardening from seeing it. He offered to pick up some dahlia bulbs for us at St. Lawrence Market.
Better get planting . . . have a wonderful day.
