The first day back at work after a hiatus is always a bit nuts. There are emails to tend to, phone calls to return, several days worth of newspapers and radio transcripts to read through, invoices to pay, and questions to answer as staff, having waited patiently while I’ve been away, all converge at my office door with issues that now need immediate attention.
In spite it all, it’s good to be home. I must say I’m a bit jet lagged today, and I’m still on Eastern time. I was wide awake at 5 this morning, so I decided to get up and tend to my garden, which was feeling a bit miffed at having been virtually ignored for the last 10 days. I took a whole bucket of weeds from it, told the flowers how beautiful they were looking, and commiserated with some of my vegetable plants that still aren’t doing as well as they should be. I think tonight I’m going to do some more soil testing to try to figure out what’s going on.
In the meantime, back to my emails.
