PAD Day 9 - Work

My Work


Work begins when I return home from my day job.

Chair sitter by day

Busy bee by night.

Feed the dogs,

Make dinner,

Wash dishes,

Start laundry,

Prep lunch for tomorrow,

Add to shopping list,

And depending on the season

I need to

Start seeds,

Replant seedlings,

Prep the gardens,

Finish planting the gardens,

Weed the gardens,

Water the gardens.

Pick vegetables,

Freeze vegetables,

Make jam,

Make tomato sauce and pesto.

I’m lucky.  I love my work.

My payment?

Sitting on my porch and surveying the fruits of my labors,

listening to the river nearby, and

the birds at my feeder.
