I have been thoroughly frustrated with my current life and lifestyle for some time now. There is simply a lot going on in a very short period of my life. That short period however appears to be stretching itself out into a longer period of a what is now about 3 years.
Which leads me to succinctly and despondently concur that I am currently and appropriately in a state of thorough Discontent.
But being by rudimentary nature a self-proclaimed Creature of Optimism, I have embraced this ‘season of discontent’ in my life so as to fuel enough massive action to hyper-travel out of it ‘quick smart’ – as my Nanna used to say.
So to keep a long story short – as Pop used to say – I had a day of immense satisfaction burying not only accumulated timber but also decades worth of hoarded paperwork, moth-eaten fabrics, silver-fish infested books and cardboard and recycled papers. It all went into The Great Ditch of Antiquity. And boy, did I feel better for watching the stuff get buried.
This is going to be the start of our soil creation area for the vegetable gardens and will probably double as a vegetable garden in the mean time. As much as I have carefully planned the movement of materials around the garden area, there were some things that were done for various reasons which has meant I have had to make variations to some of the planning, design and processes used along the way. I have no doubt that this new garden will be extraordinary. The journey may not be as I have planned or in the order I have wished for. This will be something to document in and of itself. Hence this blog.
