Sometimes I can't turn off my brain. Like today.

I can't help but think in circles, and it stinks.

This is the circle right now:

Everything is brown from the freeze. It rained yesterday. That means the ground is ready for seeds again. I need to order seeds. I can't order seeds, I need to plant the seeds I have. I WANT to plant the seeds I have. I want to protect the seedlings I have and the seeds I plant. So I want to install a couple pieces of PVC and a little fabric dome to help keep frost off those precious babies, but I can't do that because I'm stuck at work - where everything is brown... from the freeze.


And each circle I seem to pick up something new. A new thought or idea that sneaks in and weasels it's way into my mind. A list to make (supplies I need! Seeds I have! Space to put those seeds!) or a task to compete. It's such a viscous cycle. Never so viscous as right now though. It's almost 'Spring' here. It's only a few short weeks away from our last frost and there is manure to purchase and top off my beds, and a cattle panel to get for my tomatoes (grrr...the new fining committee for my HOA has set $100 A DAY FINES this year!) there is that whole row cover thing I want to do. Then there are the new plant markers I made yesterday...they aren't helping anything just begging to be put into place. I've also been staring at my  planting diagrams spending time dreaming, and for that matter scheming as well. I am nearing a physical ache to get into my garden and DO.

Plant diagrams are nearly empty right now They will be full again soon!

And to make matters worse my poor hubby will be laid up this weekend so I'll have to be away from the house with the kids so he can rest alone. It's been planned for a long time but that doesn't make it any easier. It makes my brain worse I can tell you because now I've got household things that need done on top of all the outdoor things I would enjoy getting done. Laundry, vacuuming, bathrooms that don't clean themselves, dishes that are piling up, and the kitchen to FINALLY reclaim from the pecan fest of late. (YEAH!)

I think I'm going mental.

Maybe I've already gone.

'Till next time!

  1. Gee Barbie all this sounds familiar except I go in these circles in the middle of the night and don't get any rest. I lists that are made for lists. It is never ending. I think I went mental a long time ago.
