I am joining in with Lady Ella's Reasons To Be Cheerful at: Flowers of Progress
I am pleased & amazed that about 97% of my perennial plants that are in the garden where the new fence was installed have returned & seem to be growing quite well. Nature can certainly take a thumping from 3 burly workmen.
I signed up for & actually participated in an art class. I often get ideas to do something but because my many anxieties overwhelm me I drop out, this time I did it & I had fun. It was a sign making class at a studio called Muse. Not only did I have to drive (at night) to another city but participate in an unknown media & with people I did not know. Everyone & especially the instructor were really kind, relaxed & most welcoming. I would do another sign class at this studio but maybe also a painting class.
I attended a birthday celebration for one of my sisters, with all the sisters in attendance. It was really an enjoyable time & lasted longer than my “I’m only staying for a couple of hours” – we laughed (mostly) & shared fun stories of the birthday sister for just over 5 hours!
New person at the clinic is working out really quite well. Hiring the right fit for an already existing team takes a lot of luck because on paper (CV/Resumes) everyone looks perfect. Things have been relatively steady this month at the clinic, which means that when I am not working, I’m really not working.
So happy to have the patio set up for the summer. I really enjoy starting my day on the patio with a cup of tea & then a wander around the garden. Next to being at the barn, my garden is my happy place.
