They happen to all of us all the time. Some good, some bad; changes are just part of life moving forward.
Things get busier for me next week as I start a new part time job and also begin substitute teaching. It's been said substitutes are just babysitters, there is some truth to this I suppose, but aren't all teachers, parents, aunts, uncles, grandmother/fathers, etc., babysitters as well? Even those of you with no kids babysit your or someone else's pet(s). Tina, over In The Garden, talks about pets and garden bloggers and says, "Pets just seem to be a natural part of gardens." She's right about that. I have a big tabby who likes to warm himself on a big rock in my garden.
Next week, and probably weeks following, I expect to be a little strapped for time and I'm pretty sure blog updating will suffer. However, I promise to do my best with what spare time I do have to visit y'all from time to time. And I hope to have a few minutes to dedicate to a new post here at least once or hopefully, twice a week.
I said I was going to start mentioning a few things music related here as well. I'll start with this picture, taken in my brother's garage the morning after a St. Patrick's Day Jam. I bet music holds as much importance for some gardeners as their pets. At least it does for me. I "hear" music in the garden, as I'm sure y'all do too.
Give it some thought the next time you're relaxing in the garden, listen and let me know what music you hear. I bet I get a huge selection of new songs to consider for my garden as well as for my iPod. If you need further help with something to listen for, click here and let NPR help.
