Yesterday Morning, I decided to switch my walk up after walking the dogs. They both can't go too long, one is a senior...bad legs and other is mending a knee. But if the weather permits I get myself an extra long walk in. Either listen to a podcast, music or just let thoughts wander out. Walking is a meditation and prayer time....quieting the inner chatter to hear from the heart. As I walked the neighborhood the one shopping center by me had some beautiful Pansy sharing their colors...couldn't pass up a phone photo here.
Not perfect, but perfectly imperfect with the all the small rock around a flower section on my back patio. I do an edging with the shovel and put out the dirt and unwanted weeds. Can't thrown that all in the leave bags that pick up and recycle to heavy, so I put it in the wheel barrow and used my hands to feel and sift the dirt from the roots of the unwanted plants.
The extra dirt/earth then went into the buckets my daughter purchased last year for bucket garden. Right now with our stay at home still in action I was so delight to be creating the dirt for the cherry tomatoes seedlings I have growing in the house. I would have gone out to by bags of dirt for it but the situation of staying home made the choice for me.
I feel it all today, 4 mile walk and yard work...I'm in gratitude for the opportunity to be useful and have simple purpose for the day and be so full of life.
