Gardening and an inspiring quote

Child labor, what a great thing! ;) Here are the boys mulching the pepper plants:
The wild black raspberries are ripening. Not enough yet to pick a bunch and freeze, but enough for a nice serving of fruit after a meal just about every day.I haven't jogged or done yoga as much as I'd like, but I tell myself that weeding, harvesting, scooping chicken muck, and all that glamorous homesteading stuff, can be good exercise too.And because I'm too busy to write a real post, here's an inspirational quote from Let Go of Clutter by Harriet Schechter (p. 149, regarding the six steps in making clutter conquering choices) -
"Trust: Trust that you have made the best possible choice for any given moment; let go of the choice and move on. Trust is what enables you to part with past choices instead of mourning the road not taken, allowing you to keep moving forward with confidence. It frees you from endlessly second-guessing yourself with 'what-ifs' and torturing your mind with 'shoulda's.'" Great advice not just for de-cluttering but in other areas of my life!
