A new beginning sparks thoughts of how to improve an already happy existence.
Gardens and beyond, encompassing all of life’s decisions yet to be made in the coming year require pondering.
How to get the most out of each and every day bubbles to the fore, a noble goal, for life is entirely too, too short, my mother’s favorite saying.
The path most worthy, the one chosen for the last several years has been to simplify the requirements.
Make do with less.
This is the opposite direction for undertakings during the first part of my life. I was a collector extraordinaire, systematically acquiring, adding to, wanting more, more, more.
No more. Streamlining is the word in usage today. How will that be accomplished? It has begun by going through cupboards, boxes and cabinets. Tossed or donated, recycled or sold, slowly the accumulations have been lessened. As weather allows, an eye to the garden will see elimination of those plants that struggle or need above and beyond maintenance. It can and will be done. Onward.
