maintenance, part two

(fun times in the yard?)

I just spent an hour of my life sweating against dandelions and inappropriately long grass (those bits that weren't brown, anyway.)

I'm feeling a bit burdened by the load of things I want to do back there, like a raised vegetable bed, new and improved patio furniture, less weeds and more plants, and other banal things.  Mostly, I fear the yard will once again become mired under by apathy and lack of energy, and yet... I don't know.  I want to be encouraged, I want to have a cool place to hang out, or to have friends hang out; I want to pick my own tomatoes and smell their stems on my hands, taste the warm juice dripping down the sides of my mouth.

I feel like a kid-- 'I want I want I want"-- and yet it's depressing to note that what I want, I must do.

And maintain. All on my own, this summer.

(apathy, here I come...)
