it's time to get out! with the temperatures rising, the sun shining, and the birds singing in the morning i want to get out. to get my hands into dirt. to drink coffee on the porch in the morning. to play with the kids in a teepee (one of our next projects!) in the afternoon. we are fortunate to have our own little garden and space right by the house. that's nice, but that's not necessary to plant and be outside. when we lived in the city, we had a little space in a community garden to cultivate. that was so much fun! anouk and i would go there in the morning, she playing and running and getting wet and dirty, me planting, weeding, and getting wet and dirty as well. it was such good times. planting salad, raspberries, and gourgette in the middle of the city. and we had the loveliest encounters over the garden fence, with people just speaking to us because we were there, gardening. so peaceful!
