For the last two weeks, I’ve been the sort of busy that is both fulfilling but deeply exhausting.
House cleaning, project planning, family business, and not a little magic—if I’m not spending my waking hours Doing All The Things, I’m using them to recover.
Hence the lack of a post last week, and the fact that this one will be briefer than usual.
Late winter and early spring are always a bit packed. As the first quarter of the year comes to an end, I’m making plans for the garden (which will be scaled back quite a bit this season), coordinating which home repairs or improvements we’re going to tackle when it’s warm enough to work outside, and just sort of wrapping my head around what I’ll be spending my time and money on once I’m no longer house-bound and full of seasonal depression.
Have I mentioned how much I hate winter? ‘Cause I do. I really, really hate it. Next month, I’ll have lived forty-four years in New Hampshire. Forty-four New Hampshire winters. Brrrrr.
As I wrote in an earlier post, the major theme for this year is “Get the Hell Out of the House,” so most of my planning and budgeting has been around that. Taking inventory of my hiking gear, camping gear, and other various and sundry outdoorsy-type-things. Then there’s my yard to consider. Try as I might, there will still be days that I’ll be stuck here close to home. Given that, there’s a long list of things I’m planning to do around the house to bring it more in line with my current expectations.
I’m sure this sorta-vague-posting is boring, but I’ll be writing about some of the more possibly-interesting bits in several posts over the next couple of weeks.
Until then, I hope you’re as excited for the next few months as I am.
Have a most excellent weekend.
