Having admitted my defeat in the Great Grass War, or perhaps it would better be called a withdrawal of the one remaining troop (me), which yes technically is defeat I guess, but………ย Okay okay, no excuses, here goes, I capitulate to the grasses deeply rooted existence; it wins.

However, having decided to let the place, house and yard, fall apart around me, and only address absolute emergencies as they arise, has bought about an unexpected wonderful sense of relieve.

Now I can concentrate on evaluating belongs, and making order out of the chaos that has gotten out of control within the walls of my castle. I can also start making plans on how I am going to use the many mountains of fabric and notions and patterns and so on so forth I have inherited from my grandmothers, and mothers, decades worth of accumulation. Perhaps there is a retirement lurking within?

So with the letting go, with my decision to once again become rootless, I have gained a victory in the form of peace of mind. For with the abandonment of this house, I will also be shedding the perpetual instability and unhappiness that comes with it.

Hence, without regret, I surrender all.

  1. We got rid of our lawn…there are now 30 berry bushes out front. The chickens get the back yard, with my blessings. I have mowed for too many years for no purpose. Another wonderful example of Let Go and Let God. Once I learned to get out of my own way, things got much easier. ๐Ÿ™‚ Blessings always!

    • It was the plan to remove all grass in the front and replace with fruit trees. I have put in a peach, a lemon, and an apricot, and this fall I had two figs, a lime, a tangerine, and a juice orange planned. However I just decided to give up because of the instability of staying here. On a different note, if that is your backyard in your blog heading, I love it. At one time, several moves ago, we had a glorious backyard garden and animals. Now the gardens are small and struggling, the rabbit has escaped its confines and roams the neighborhood, the chickens are not let out as frequently as they should be, and the dog is getting old……๐Ÿ™„
