Inspired by these favorable conditions, I can't help but get outdoors. I spent a good part of last week on the back patio. There was plenty to do after 5 months of neglect. I swept, scrubbed down the outdoor furniture, turned the soil in the garden, cleaned my collection of lanterns, and started planting seeds. In just a few days I happily awoke to three varieties of lettuce bursting through the soil. I am patiently waiting to see the sprouting of the spinach, lavender, morning glories and marigolds I've planted. In the past few days I also spent time getting sewing projects together, doing wash, and enjoying the fine city sunsets that we have been having.
