Fall and Ideas

New routines.  New faces.  New patterns.  New ideas.

I know, I know.  This is not the time for new ideas.  But I wouldn't be me without too many new ideas.  Sew, Mama, Sew isn't helping.  I am determined not to start anything until the day after Christmas (more on that later).  

But what is really niggling around in my head are all the new garden ideas and sites I want to start for the spring.  Maybe it is just the fact that I can bend over that has me convinced that we can do anything, but I am starting to turn the critical eye toward every sunny spot in our yard.  

The chickens are doing their work to expand our current garden.  The bare patch behind the tractor is where they plowed last week.  Clover is coming up, and the compost is breaking down.  The soil is getting ready for next year.  So, I am is expanding and I am sinking my fingers into this soil.  

Because I don't know how long I will be here, I am reminded that I do not own this soil, but am merely its steward.

Then because I had a baby eight days ago, I shelved my ideas, raked up a pile of leaves and we had some fall fun!
