While I was doing the laundry this weekend, I realized how much black was in the wash. It made me realize that I have been wearing a lot of balck lately. Usually I do that when I want to be invisible; when I don’t want people to ask me to do anything else. That is this time. I have too much work and too many demands. I am glad business is booming, but there has to be balance. I need to find it.

St. JCN told me that there is a poem that says that planting a garden is expressing hope fo rthe future. She helped me to plant and replant my bulbs in October and they are starting to come up. They look better than they have in several years and it is nice. I greatly appreciate her help.
