Ennui

I took this photo on April 25. I haven't taken a photo since then! I think my participation in YIP 2010 is now officially considered a failure.

I haven't had enthusiasm for much of anything lately. I'm not depressed, so I don't know what this is, exactly. I have been doing what needs to get done (and there's alway so much that needs to get done), but not much else. I haven't been stitching or experimenting in the kitchen or taking photos. I'm in an ebb. I am pretty sure my life has always been filled with ebbs and flows, but since I started a blog with the intent to blog the flow times, I notice the ebbs more, because the ebbs mean I have nothing to say here!

It will pass. The flow will come again.

It has been very rainy and chilly here this week. The photo above is a fair representation of the current weather, but not the state of the garden. The bursts of color are gone, so it's mostly just green out there right now, a very pretty, fresh green.

I bought all the seeds for my vegetable garden, but haven't planted yet. Even though we had a very early, warm, dry spring, I know all about the Cold Sophie, so I wait until mid-May has passed, and then I know it's safe to start my garden. And sure enough, even though we had all that lovely warm, dry weather, the Cold Sophie has indeed descended on us this week, pretty much right on schedule. Now I just hope she remembers to leave.
