Day 22, 23 & 24 – 30 Days of Beauty

Life has been so busy these last few days. I thought about my journal and had good intentions every night to write, but then I’d collapse in a heap so exhausted and my mind couldn’t find the energy to form a sentence.

Jim left for work on Monday. He will be gone for 4 weeks. I’m not sure how I feel about that just yet. I’ve often wondered if I could manage this place on my own. If I would be able to do everything myself and what it would be like to live alone. So for the next 30 days I get to run the test and decide if I’m able.

Of course, nothing comes easy, and since Jim left we’ve had a crazy wind storm that knocked out our power, brought a tree down over Jenna’s garage, the garbage didn’t get picked up, I had to almost hang from the pull cord on my garage door to get it open and then to re-engage it after the power came on, I had to crawl up on a ladder and coerce the thing back together because it wouldn’t catch on it’s own. Add in a bunch of broken branches and leaves strewn all over the yard and you’ve got the perfect two days…..what the heck else can go wrong?  

I’m staying calm and getting it done; I feel pretty happy and that is it’s own kind of beauty. 

ps – my picture is my garden. I don’t usually plant it, Jim does, but this year I did it!
