djd Potato head

“The best laid plans of mice and men often go astray” and sometimes it even happens to women.  I needed to hill up the potatoes, thus taking care of the weeds at the same time; but as the weather has turned hot, I decided to get up early and work in the cool of the morning.  I did not expect to be devoured by 50 jillion little bugs!  What are those swallows doing, besides obliging me to cover my car in the garage? 

However, I persevered and am happy that task has been accomplished.  I continued in the vegetable garden, weeding and straightening edges, thinning out poppy seedlings—that is hard for me to do but the ones I leave will be better able to grow with sufficient space.

When I ended the session, I thought I will never be able to say I have finished weeding my garden, be it the outer or the inner one.  I will stop working on the outer one when I die, but there may always be tasks for the inner one since the mind and soul remain after the body dies.  I can only hope (and do my best to build it) that my soul will be strong enough to do what needs to be done.

About djdfr

Daily life experiences by a Franco-American woman living in the Breton countryside form the basics of this blog. Gardening, watercolour, choral music, food, are some of my interests. I seek to balance the physical, mental and spiritual. I am a free believer praying from the Bible, the Qur’an and The Revelation of Arès. In 1974, with Jesus as the messenger, and in 1977, manifesting as a stick of light, Our Creator spoke directly to a man in Arès, France, named Michel Potay. The message is in the book “The Revelation of Arès”. It is a call for us to change, to practice love, peacemaking, forgiveness, to free ourselves from all prejudice, to develop our spiritual intelligence, the intelligence of the heart.
