It’s April 11th. I woke up this morning to my daughter’s smile in my face. She was asking me for a hug. We spent much of the day yesterday planting. I gave her a space in the back yard to make a garden. She picked out assorted plants and we prepared the earth together. She is SO proud of her space!

I spent the afternoon planting assorted herbs in clay pots. Basil, Oregano, Sage, Peppermint, Rosemary and Lavendar. I am hoping that my rosemary and lavendar grow strong so that I can plant them outside the front door. This way we can smell the fragrance as we enter and exit the house.

I love lavendar.

I am feeling better today – I don’t feel like as much of a prisoner. I think these past few days off of work have helped. I have also steered clear of the TV, ate mostly fresh fruits and vegetables AND I have given up my daily glass of wine. I also finished my book and have begun reading the second – AND I have been gardening and listening to beautiful music. I will try to do the same today.

Maybe I am on to something…
