I bought more plants than I meant to, but between having such fun working with Michael all day and the two neighbors who expressed appreciation for our efforts, I can’t even be a little bit sorry. #gardening

"people shouldn't have to CW $topic! $topic is nothing to be ashamed of!"
listen to us:
- we don't CW things out of shame.
- we don't ask for things to be CWed because we think you shouldn't post them at all.
- CWs are not the mark of that which should be kept out of sight.
- CWs are used so that people with particular sensitivities to a topic don't have to unfollow or block you if you post it.
- CWs do not narrow your audience; they broaden it.
we've had this discussion so many times.

The last several days have been pretty bad with the headache, pain up to pre-Thanksgiving levels. Also my whole spine is pissed off and crunchy, fairly reluctant to hold me up in general. But I’ve spent fourteen hours of the last five days out working in the garden. Somehow the good stuff happening outside is making me more tolerant of the bad stuff happening inside (my bones).
Clearing up the winter debris, preparing the veggie patch for the plants I will bring home from the Friends School Sale on Saturday. It’s so lovely out here. It’s hard work but I love it so much. #gardening
I agreed to wait until May 1st to start cleaning up the garden, so overwintering pollinators would have a chance to thaw out and move on. Then I had to work on the 1st and 2nd, so today was finally the day! There’s so much work to do, and I am HERE for it. Let’s observe how sore I am in the morning, shall we?
"if i take your race away, and there you are, all strung out and all you got is your little self... and what is that? what are you without racism? are you any good? are you still strong? you still smart? you still like yourself? [...] if you can only be tall because someone's on their knees then you have a serious problem. my feeling is white people have a very, very serious problem. and THEY should start thinking about what THEY can do about it."
I am way too tired to have a good attitude about unpicking this stupid sewn bind off. #knitting
