Waiting on the service guy from Allied Generator to fill us in on how our generator works and what we need to do with it. We went ahead and bought it, now it remains to learn how to use it.
Another work outside day. Cleaning up continues, though I imagine today I’ll expand the clean up to the garden bed. Kate may get started on the pruning. 9 days or so until the average date of the last frost, May 15th, so planting annuals is still not a good idea. Transplanting though can proceed apace and I plan to remove day lilies from one bed completely and move them to other sites along the edge of our woods. The peonies, large now, will get divided and move to the front.
It is the most distressing or reassuring reality, the fact that life proceeds in its ordinary way no matter what the drama in your own life. I find it reassuring for the most part, though at times it seems cruel, unspeakably cruel. Sometimes it seems that the pain my life should cause the whole world to stop spinning, to pause for a moment while I adjust, solve or resolve the dilemma, then someone can push play.
