SPRING // home edition

It's spring here in the Southern Hemisphere, and things are looking up. As we say in Kiwiland, soon it'll be time to "crank out the jandals and light up the barbie." Days are getting warmer and nights are getting shorter. Yussss.

I must admit, spring is my favourite time of year, mainly because of the incredible bloom that happens at this time of year. There's also this poignant feeling of hope in the air; it's as if the night has passed, and the day is at hand. Even if life is unutterably awful, one does feel that things must start to look up when spring arrives on one's doorstep. Also, everything just grows at this time of year. Like, uncontrollably. Grass, trees, weeds; you name it, it's growing!

So, to celebrate S P R I N G, here are some projects to enjoy this weekend (home edition):

// Plant seeds for your summer vegetable garden

We planted basil, tomatoes, perpetual spinach, beans, coriander, chili, and lettuce.
Then you can make T H I S:

// Complete an outdoor furniture project

Like this modular pallet seating from shanty-to-chic:


// Propagate a succulent

Succulents are so beautiful, and so very easy to keep alive. Check out this handy-dandy chart to help you:

West Elm

Then you could create this beauty:

// don't let evil get the best of you

Love from the center of who you are; don’t fake it. 
Run for dear life from evil; 
hold on for dear life to good. 
Be good friends who love deeply; 
practice playing second fiddle.
Don’t burn out; 
keep yourselves fueled and aflame. 
Be alert servants of the Master, cheerfully expectant. 
Don’t quit in hard times; pray all the harder. 
Help needy Christians; be inventive in hospitality.
Bless your enemies; no cursing under your breath. 
Laugh with your happy friends when they’re happy; 
share tears when they’re down. 
Get along with each other; 
don’t be stuck-up. 
Make friends with nobodies; 
don’t be the great somebody.
Don’t hit back; 
discover beauty in everyone. I
f you’ve got it in you, get along with everybody. 
Don’t insist on getting even; that’s not for you to do. 
“I’ll do the judging,” says God. “I’ll take care of it.”
Our Scriptures tell us that if you see your enemy hungry, go buy that person lunch, or if he’s thirsty, get him a drink. 
Your generosity will surprise him with goodness. 
Don’t let evil get the best of you; 
get the best of evil by doing good.
