It was 20°C on Saturday. It was my favourite day all year so far.
I can’t believe we were wearing t-shirts OUTSIDE. The most exciting things about the weekend, though, were these: MY TULIPS STARTED COMING UP and THERE ARE BUDS ON THE TREES. I’m beyond stoked.
I love spring so, so much. It gives me hope that life isn’t actually made of snow. I loathe winter and don’t know why I put myself through a Saskatchewan winter every year. One day we will move to a place with a longer growing season. Which I feel bad saying because we’ve made lasting friendships here we’d miss if we left. But is warmer weather worth it? One day we’ll decide.
Exciting news? I just ordered my Dam seeds. I’m so excited to see green. Gardening is such therapy.
I made a big mistake two years ago and ordered the wrong kind of mulch, so my garden is covered in mulch that is looking to stifle anything I try to grow. It’s super. Last year’s garden was abysmal. SO. I’m building garden boxes this year with Kaylie. She doesn’t know yet that she’s helping me. I built a garden box last year with her and was asked by someone why Noah didn’t make it for me. I have an answer to that: because I could make it myself. I love building things. Noah’s getting pallets for me this year because oh my word lumber is expensive. I’m just hoping the wood is strong enough after I separate the boards.
Now listen, just don’t tell my dying house plants that I’m breaking up with them for the green I can actually keep alive.
Until May 29 I’ll be fundraising for Preston’s buddy Ronan for the Cystic Fibrosis walk, to fund research to find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. I’m almost at my goal (THANK YOU, people who donated!!), but we still have to reach the team goal, so don’t let my goal being reached stop you! Donate here!
