My gardens are doing pretty well this year.  I can’t express how much I enjoy going out each morning to see what I can pick, what needs watered, and how many weeds sprang up overnight.  I’ve always thought the time in the sunshine was making me happy. Recently I ran across a study that says the dirt is also a mood enhancer. “Exposure to friendly soil bacteria could improve mood by boosting the immune system just as effectively as antidepressant drugs, a new study suggests.”  Well, sunshine, dirt, eating cherry tomatoes that taste like candy, whatever it is… it really makes me enjoy my gardens!

Today was college shopping day with Abby.  Somehow God blessed me with a daughter who doesn’t like to shop.  It’s great because she’s not spoiled and doesn’t want a lot of clothes or other “stuff.”  It’s not as great because how can I be expected to purchase clothes, school supplies, sheets, towels and everything else she needs for college in just one day?  Bottom line was Abby was worn out before we got everything done, so now we get to do another college shopping day. 🙂
