The Monday Reflective | life lately

It seems we're once again being blessed with a warm and sunny Spring. We've spent the whole last week in the backyard doing and around the house, doing some cleaning and yard work, prepping the vegetable beds and potting my seedlings.

Dan was able to whip up a seedling shelf window hanger for me over the Easter long weekend. So far it's been filled with tiny pots containing the seeds of cauliflower, cabbage, peppers, corn, scallions, onions, squash, tomatoes, lavender, chamomile and sunflowers.

Sawyer's been showing a special interest gardening lately too.. If gardening means he gets to pour water with the watering jug. He's a helpful little guy though, he always wipes up his messes... Almost always.

Meanwhile outside in the yard, we've added a few new decorative additions, extra thrifty like. We bought some red bricks from a guy who'd gotten them from the Fire Hall, they'd been leftover from when the new building went up last year. And then we slapped together a cement slab X river rock step surrounding the composts... I think I'll plant some sedum between crevices.

We got our fire pit emptied, cleaned, and reset in the centre of our circular stacked log wall. We had a smokie roast and enjoyed the sunshine and hotness. I'm pretty amped up on this new lettuce wrap craze my gf Cait's got me on. And the goodness of wieners and burgers, with so much less guilt and bloated-ness. And I gotta tell ya... I've been feeling bloated and mushy lately. Which is why we've been on a mega health kick since Easter long weekend.

It's been detox salads and clean eating for this gal. Cait, Devrey, Juice and I have been leaning on each other for support using our group text messages.. being accountabilibudies.. chatting first thing in the mornings when we wake up for our miracle mornings, checking in, sending motivational pics and what not. It's actually quite amazing how much being accountable to others can help kick your butt into action.

Another reason to be active, we recently bought a toddler carrier for hiking and Sawyer loves it! We've taken him out to the Community Forest for several long walks now and each time he happily jibber jabbers away in his half english half baby talk.

Throwing out the intention... this is going to be a fit Summer!... Who's with me?

And what's a fit Summer without plenty of red wine? Antioxidants. It's justified.
