Perhaps we should make some bouquets

I asked the kids to help me in the yard for Mother's day gift last weekend.  We cleared out some overgrown vines, pruned roses, weedeated, raked leaves, and formed another garden bed. 

Working together with my family is one of my favorite things.  So is working outside with dirt and plants.  Dr. and Mrs. Turner, the folks who built this home loved working outdoors, too, as is evidenced by the many garden beds, dozens of roses, the fig trees and beautiful regional plants and gorgeous rocks situated about the property. 

There is nothing like the good therapy of being outdoors, surrounded by lovely things.  And have you ever noticed how something like raking and sweeping can make a person feel a lot more in control of circumstances? 

After our little time of work, I noticed the kids a lot more happy to hula hoop, swing and take a book outdoors to read.  Maybe this evening we should take our read aloud book out to the swing for tonight's chapter.  We are reading Rascal, by Sterling North.  There is a sweet story connected to that book and our family, I hope to tell you sometime.  But for now, Nora and I need to head to the library.  Better grab the bikes and go.

That's my therapy too. Digging in the dirt, planting flowers, even shoveling manure.

Cleaning also helps. I think it's a control thing with me.
