Beautiful spring weather in these parts. The garden is calling. My old cons are serving as gardening shoes. They’re completely impractical, they are riddled with holes now. My feet end up dirty despite wearing them. I can’t bear to part with them. I do have a new pair for everyday wear but even so it seems wasteful to part with these friends just yet.
There are some painting jobs on my horizon so I am expecting that I will get use of them again then. Perhaps when they’re splattered with paint stains we will part ways. Or maybe then I will just fill them up with dirt and plant a flower in them.
With any luck I’ll be wearing them again tomorrow out in the garden. There is much to do. Weeding mostly. A little bit of vegie planting. Lots of snail relocation.
My youngest two are only too happy to help with the watering.
Do you have anything so old and worn that it has become impractical yet you still can’t part ways?
