WOMEN AT WORK

IMG_6628The sky was overcast, the morning air sweet with the smell of rain. The birds sang in full chorus.  Bring it on!

I have a little gas in my tank and I am ready to tackle the day.  No more procrastination, at least for today.  I am fuelled by my recent successes.

  • I called the city about the poor condition of the back alley and they showed up on Mothers Day to grade it!
  • I made an appointment and got a date to have my car’s rusted tailgate repainted.
  • Yesterday, the roofer showed up to fix a faulty flashing on the garage roof without a reminder.  YAY!  I love businesses who live up to their reputation.

IMG_0723I am pumped and ready to go.  So I might as well strike while the iron is hot.  Is that how the saying goes?  Even though I can’t move a mountain physically, I can metaphorically, in small loads.

IMG_0732Sheba supervised from afar, making sure that I don’t screwed up.  I got 4 loads before the rain came.  Good thing the roofer came yesterday!

So you’re probably wondering where and why I am moving my mountain.  It is for creating little gardens of eden – 4 of them this year.  Hopefully we will harvest aplenty in the fall.  We won’t be able to feed the world but it’s a start….in a good direction.

About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.

    Nice post. Good luck with your gardening. It sounds as if you are making progress already. The other things you are doing also help.
