'only the good' friday

huh- it's that time of the week again. seemed to sneak right up on me :) i have been a bit busy this week- and i have a feeling my whole summer is looking that way. but for today- i am getting my wash machine unplugged- it has had a clog for a long time and i put a bucket under the drain to catch the overflow- and i am thrilled. what a mess. i like the guy who is coming to unclog it too. :) he's a friend of my husband's and is a very nice person- pleasant- so at least i know who i am paying. and he doesn't have a butt crack :)

raining here today but i hope to get my garden going over the weekend and then finish up the fam's garden next week. then, fingers crossed that it grows :) i have been tending towards control over things i can control- and i have been turning back towards the four noble truths. especially the one about life changing- and i don't feel quite as scared to death as i would have. i am also reading 'the world without us' by alan weisman- and while it makes me sad sometimes- it isn't as grim as i would have imagined. perhaps life can survive when humans extinct ourselves. that's a good thing.

anyhoo, feel free to jump in the meme when and if you want- and feel free to leave your link over here- and i will attempt to link you up in the post. enjoy the weekend- namaste.

Hi there! I'm a fellow "Only the Good Friday" poster, and I just wanted to pop over and say HEY! I'm all about helping Shelly spread the Optimism Virus, especially this week when she's taking some time for herself, you know?

My carrots and my onions beans and peas are up and my 18 brussel sprouts are doing well. It is already time to start weeding and eating radishes.
