Some of you may remember that last Spring, before the garden rush hit, we started building a storage building. It was very exciting. But, the weather turned a little too nice, and the collective energy all turned toward the garden. We threw a tarp over the platform which was to become the storage shed, and there it sat, all summer and all fall, as the work of the season took precedence.
The sun these past few days has been good for a great many things. It has drawn us all outdoors. It has helped us shed our coats and pallor. The sap has been running, of course – but we don’t have the land base to make the effort of maple tapping much worthwhile (we just go to Canada each year instead). But goodness knows, there’s plenty else to do in the sunshine. Like, finish that building project!
I am thankful for the clear warm blue sky, day after day.
I am thankful for the persistence of my Fellow Man, diving into new work, day after day.
