Yesterday I spent a few hours at the community gardens, installing chicken wire along a stretch of fence, then weeding the garlic plot we planted last November.
I was joined by two plot-holders and their kids, who were exactly the right amount of helpful and complaining about doing garden work, especially on a Saturday. Great kids.
And that was enough to move me from grouchy to grateful. I'm going to schedule daily garden trips for the next few weeks--lots to do, and it turns out it's the cure for the common grump.
