Sometimes the best laid plans are not made by you, but are the direct guidance of the Universe. Have you ever had that feeling where you just know you have to surrender to the flow and see where it takes you?
Well that’s what last week felt like. I had promised my WP friends I would be back to visit them last weekend .However the Universe had other plans.
My own plans were simple ones.. I needed a few days Computer Free to catch up with some unfinished projects.. The first one being a little jacket I made for my Daughter’s Step Daughter’s new baby girl. So technically that makes me a Step Great Gran! My other knitting project I also finished.
This was a cardigan for myself.
The other projects centred around the allotments and we had already planted seeds in seed trays which were sprouting. But the allotments needed digging which Hubby did, and I set too and helped plant the onion and shallots.
Remember this photo from last year where the old rubbish heap and nettle patch was going to be dug up? Below!
Well this is what it looks like now on the photo below.
Another job which needed to be done was to paint the sheds with wood preserve. You can see Hubby busy doing this one and I did the other. This shed brings a whole new meaning to Lean-too shed lol, It only houses sticks, wire and cloches and nets etc.
The next thing was to clear out the old Strawberry Bed of old plants.. We planted new shoots in the autumn .And made a start to clear out the old Strawberry bed. This will then be the new home for some of my flowers for cut flowers.
Below is the view from the main shed. in the foreground the Raspberry, Blueberries, Red and Black currents, Gooseberries, Blackeberries. We still have in the background, Brussels, Purple flowering broccoli and a few Leeks left. And of course a freezer full of goodness..
In the mean time I wrote a poem in collaboration with Aquileana about Helen of Troy. and emailed her it just before my laptop was set for a scheduled Health Check.. That’s when the Universe thought to have other ideas about my plans..
I mentioned one of my keys was sticking to the computer guy, so the kind man said as it was insured he would send it away.. And So that’s why I have been absent longer than I intended.. But you see the Universe had a plan all along.. And as to that I will reveal in my second part to this post..
And its good to be back..
