Point Of View: Funny What A Few Degrees Can Make You Do.


All I ask is a piece of land to work and to live in peace.

What a difference a few degrees make.  If it was 5o C. or below I would be shoveling snow and probably swearing and complaining about the weather and the bloody snow.  Instead, it was 20o C. and I was shoveling and preparing the garden for planting and enjoying myself.

Today in Toronto we had a beautiful day with +20o C. weather and not a cloud in the sky. I usually would rest on Sunday or go out for a drink, but because I had class all day on Saturday I felt the need to get outside and prepare the garden.


Even after six months, it started up.

However I must admit, I do enjoy shoveling and moving the soil around.  To  remove old roots and get it ready to plant vegetables all the while hearing the ballgame on the radio in the background.  Ahh, a good day.

Interesting, a month ago it was cold and we had flurries with snow on the ground and I would avoid going outside to shovel or to do anything outside.  Now I’m outside soaking up the sun and relishing in the hard work and the sweat I put in.

Funny what a few degrees can make you do.
