Happy New Year

Welcome to 2009, I think we can all agree that, while 2008 held many charms, it is time to embrace the new year.

I am not going to bore you (or myself) with a list of resolutions, but I WILL tell you what 2009 has in store for me.

I WILL plant a "real" garden this spring and summer. I will eat of my labours, and I will preserve the summer's bounty for the depths of winter.

I WILL divorce my ex-husband, after all these years. I can't tell you that I will then marry Husbandly One, because I don't control that part of the equation....but I can tell you I will make myself marriageable, what he does with it after that is up to him.

I WILL not allow myself to feel bitter or sad if Husbandly One's reaction is less than stellar.I WILL allow myself to become as giddy as a schoolgirl if his response is favourable.

I WILL travel to Spain in October, to walk the Camino de Santiago de Compostela with Kelz. I will set off on my own spiritual path, and wait with great anticipation to see what the universe reveals to me.

I will.

Right on.

Gardening soothes the soul in ways I never could have imagined. May your garden be bountiful.
