I’d had grand plans for today but hadn’t factored in the rain. However, after I’d been out to collect a brush on a retractable pole from a fellow Freegler on the other side of the village
I decided to do at least one or two outside jobs.
I’d already put the cardboard box which had been taking up a large portion of the living room floor on top of the new raised bed yesterday. It’s weighed down with stones from around the garden to stop it blowing away. I dread to think if it took off and landed on a person’s car windscreen when they were driving the car. I do also want to reduce the potential weeds that may otherwise grow in the bed.
So, onto today. Not feeling in the mood to get muddy feet, I stuck to the paths and shifted more compost from the Green Johanna to the dalek. Then I cleared some wood ash and straw which had been taking up room in the shed by adding that to the latter bin as well.
It’s not a big job but I find it oh so satisfying. Apart from the job of creating a fertile and carbon-filled medium for the garden soil, it’s a relief when the pile of clutter goes down just a smidge. Even if I put something else in its place, on this occasion the ‘new’ brush. But this does mean I can clean parts of the windows I usually can’t reach,
What about your most satisfying jobs? What are they and why are they satisfying?
