Hard Things

Life is full of things which are hard or tedious or otherwise unpleasant that need doing anyhow. They help make the world go 'round, they improve skills, and they boost your sense of self-respect. But doing them still kinda sucks. It's all the more difficult to do those things when nobody appreciates it. Happily, blogging allows us to share our accomplishments and pat each other on the back.

What are some of the hard things you've done recently? What are some hard things you haven't gotten to yet, but need to do?

Wednesday Yardening

Today I fed the birds.  There are now two little white eggs in the mourning dove nest by the kitchen window.  :D

The weather is chilly and clear.  It looks like the spring bulbs have survived the snow; daffodils, crocus, Dutch iris, snowdrops, and forsythia are still blooming.

Also my father ordered a TON more plants for me.  \o/
