Team Work 5-28-12
Scott and I spent time at our cabin in Packwood this weekend. I cleaned the inside for a while until Scott realized I was having a hard time dealing with working in Kathryn’s room. Yep, she has a room in the cabin. She decorated it. There are many things in the room that are special little things of hers. I went through all of these things. One by one I looked at each item as I dusted. I thought over and over, Oh this is so Kathryn. It is hard to do these things but they must be done.
So, I worked outside with Scott. It made me feel better. Dealing with Kathryn’s things can only be done for a while. If I work on it too long I get too depressed.
We went to the usual Swap meet places. For those of you who don’t know there is a huge swap meet every Memorial Day and Labor Day weekend in Packwood. This was fun to go to. Scott and I also enjoyed sitting by the bond fire on Saturday night. We talked a bit about Kathryn and how she loved bond fires. We cried a little too. On Sunday we did a lot of yard work. When we left the inside and outside both looked really great!
We stopped by my Mom’s house on the way home on Sunday. We had dinner with her and a very nice visit. Too short of a visit but and nice visit.
Today, Monday, Scott and I finish the garden. Well, almost all of it. There are still three boxes to fill with dirt. There are two tomato plants to plant and lettuce to plant. I would also like to plant some potatoes. I planted Pumpkins, Watermelons, Bell Peppers, Cucumbers, Corn, Peas, Beans, Carrots, and Broccoli. A bunch of these were starts that Richard grew. I’m really excited to see how it all goes. Oh, I also planted dill to go with the Rosemary. We also have 4 Artichokes plants that are doing great. They are beautiful plants.
While I worked in the garden I thought about what Kathryn may have been doing this weekend. Just two years ago we were all at the cabin together along with some friends of Richard’s and Kathryn’s. We had a wonderful time. I love those times where we were all together sharing time and just hanging out. Those are good times.
I hear my neighbor’s voice saying, “Remember the good times – just remember the good times.” I try to keep this in my mind when I get down. I need to remember the good times.
I hope you all had a nice weekend creating good memories.
