Only having so much energy in a day, I decide what activity I will do as my day unfolds. I'm limited in my physical pursuits right now while I wait to see the specialist for my hip and knee. I'm told I should hear in a few weeks. I miss taking my camera along on my trail walks. As compensation, I decided to do a little work outside today.
I chose a corner of my humble little garden border that I can see from my deck and kitchen window. Using a great ergonomic weeding tool, (it's just there on the left)I cleaned it up a bit, pulling a few weeds. I'll add some mulch later with a little help from hubby.
We also have an apple tree in the middle of the yard that is another bird haven.
When one has limited mobility, one compensates by looking more carefully at the textures and colors in one's own space. I've re-discovered this little hidden patch of lichen against the fence behind the hedge Perhaps it will be inspiration for a fiber art piece.
And I love this lichen growing on the apple tree.
After the gardening, I skipped the sewing room and made muffins instead. Banana. date, walnut, yum! Perfect with a cup of chai spice tea.
