Monkey Grass

We spent of our time outdoors yesterday working in the yard. Alfred weed-eated and mowed, then used a blower to remove the grass clippings from the driveway. In the afternoon, I worked on digging up monkey (mondo) grass so I could divide it and move it to a new area.

As my hands turned over the fertile dark soil, my mind quieted. My breathing slowed as I worked and focused on the task at hand. No one bothers you when you are gardening, for fear they will be put to work so I was left alone to garden in solitude.

The weather is supposed to be nice today - sunny with a high of 72 degrees. After we're finished with our indoor duties and lessons, we will head outdoors to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine.

It's nice to drift away when working in the garden - not such a chore when that happens *!*
