Paul and I took vacation time on Monday to give ourselves a little more time to move and to start unpacking. It was a wise choice and a much needed day to recover and unpack the essentials before returning to work. I started the day in a magnificently simple and rewarding way: I made tea and took it into the backyard where I alternated between drinking the tea and pulling weeds in the very unkempt rain garden I inherited with the house. The dogs spent their morning assisting me in the weeding by eating as much grass as they could.
