“But really, Marilla, one can’t stay sad very long in such an interesting world, can one?”

~ L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

I’ve been enjoying the new Anne series on CBC so much and I’m saving all the episodes with plans to watch them again with my granddaughter, hoping my little red-haired girl will come to love the red-haired girl of Green Gables as much as I do.

I clicked the button to NETFILE our tax returns yesterday so cranky Linda can go away now. I’m turning my attention back to getting my Etsy shop ready open this week and planning this year’s garden.

My tomatoes are growing so quickly they’ll need repotting soon. The peppers, thankfully, are slower but coming along nicely.  I haven’t made it to my community garden plot for a few days, as I’ve been sidelined, but may try to convince Gerry to take me down this afternoon to check on the peas, spinach, and garlic. We’ll see.

In the spirit of Anne, I’m looking forward to getting back out into the interesting world this week and getting things done!


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
  1. Such a lovely image – you and your granddaughter watching Anne together. I loved her, too.

  2. You have already gotten a lot of things done. Like me though, you have high expectations for yourself.

    Friday I filed the tax return for my brother’s trust fund. Hurrah! Our own is hubby’s concern and I think he’s progressing well.

    i love the little red-haired girl of Green Gables and hope to share her with my own auburn-haired grand-daughter.

  3. You have produce already? Wow. I haven’t even planted anything yet. Good for you!

    1. Nothing edible yet, Karen. The garlic and spinach were planted last fall and are just starting. I put the peas in the ground last week. We need some warmer weather to get things moving!
