Yesterday my husband and I finished out a strawberry tower. At one point I sat in a chair to take a rest. I watched as he mixed soil, compost and some peat moss with his hands. He was hot and dirty and he had the most contented expression on his face.
I had to smile. Playing in the dirt is one of those things that seems to give my husband a sense of balance and enjoyment. He’s not happy if he doesn’t have a garden or some project in the yard.
I’m like that too, but with creative stuff. I need to have a crochet hook in my hand or a bit of felt or some glue. Without that creativity, my world starts to grow grey.
Do you know what brings balance and enjoyment to your sweetie’s world? To yours? Make sure there is room for those things in your lives.

Here’s a Pinterest picture of a strawberry tower. Ours is a bit wider and shorter, but it holds a truckload of strawberry plants. I’m looking forward to fresh strawberries and some strawberry jam!
Do Not Disturb has a wonderful post on The Fun Theory: Bedroom Edition Loved the video, loved the suggestions.
