Can you be hungover from gardening?
My hubby was home this past weekend after a four week absence. It was a whirlwind of pruning, tilling, cleaning, fixing, pinewood derby car tuning on Saturday followed by passing out in front of the television for LDS General Conference on Sunday. Trying to pack in everything left us both exhausted and bleary-eyed this morning, although it was worse for him because he had to take a late flight back out to where he'll be the next three months. I just have a headache and a long list of more stuff to do.
But! I can point to one part of the garden and say, "It's planted!" We managed to get it done just before the snow hit. Yeah. Snow. It's mostly gone nearly 24 hours later after the storm, but that's spring in Utah for you. Yes I planted cold hardy seeds. Wouldn't have bothered with other stuff because I am sure the last frost is weeks away still.
I'm going to let the "Bedlamites" (thank you Elder Holland!) organize family home evening tonight because I can barely keep my eyes open. It's a toss-up whether it's exhaustion or hayfever that's shutting the lids closed.
