I have not had a lot of time to garden despite the sunshine and lack of rain here – in fact my gardening time seems to be spent watering, not what you expect in winter in the Bay Area! it is a worry, and makes me more determined than ever somehow to fit a water tank onto my steep slope.
Other activities are winterish, making good bone broths, baking potatoes in the ashes in the wood stove, cuddling the cat who now allows herself to be cuddled. It took only two years! We have settled wonderfully well into the new workrooms, neatly labelled shelves, neatly folded linens, bright and clean and orderly which is not at all how I feel, just how it is! I feel I am chasing to catch my tail half the time, and the other half I catch it and wonder what to do with it. Maybe Shibui and I have more in common than I thought.
