Today I haven't been working out at all! I am too tired and sore after our vacation at the cottage. I have been digging, cutting and pulling. My arms are full of scratches and bites, my knees and legs are bruised and my hair still had some small twigs in it when I brushed it this morning, despite having the longest shower on returning Friday night.
We have the wild cherry trees backing off for now, alas I am pretty sure they will be returning with a vengeance. Their roots sure runs deep! On the upside we have freed one huge red currant bush from under their siege! And we also located some nettles thriving in its shadow, so next spring we know just where to find young nettle for soup. And so the battle of the cottage grounds continues..
This week; Thankful for the beautiful full moon, for busy and fat earthworms tending the soil, the many interesting birds in the garden, for wild raspberries and for our little climbing monkeys grandparents keeping her safe and entertained while hubby and I were dozing on the warm pebble beach under clear sunny skies for a full afternoon..
