We have both just survived the most productive spring break had by anyone, anywhere. Ever. Now that I am looking at these photos, it occurs to me that I didn't even document helf of what we got done (tore a fence out, refinished bathroom cabinets, built a bluebird box, etc.)
Whew. We worked from sun up til midnight each night except for our play day to Williamsburg with our nephews on Wednesday and a birding trip on Saturday. Saturday afternoon, I spent having fun with a knitty friend, Nailya. Besides that, we were busy busy busy.
We both feel better for it despite the fact that we are now enduring Monday morning after a time change even more exhausted and usual. It is amazing how an insane flurry of productivity lifts the spirit and calms the nerves. I am reminded of this fact by this wonderful quote by Michael Bridge:
"When our eyes see our hands doing the work of our hearts, the circle of Creation is completed inside us, the doors of our souls fly open and love steps forth to heal everything in sight."
Pretty deep, huh? Who knew you could say such a thing about hammers and nails, paint brushes and doorbells. But it's true. Good work begets good feelings and tired or no, we are both so much the better for it.
