Our area has been in a major drought.
As in, the city is looking at new water sources…. the reservoir was at like 50% of its usual level… fishing and boating being impossible in most of the lakes around here.
It has been very very dry.
Until right around the time that I started with the new job.
Since then it has rained. And rained. And rained. And rained.
Everything is green here…. which is completely and totally not like this area. I usually get a break from mowing from about early july to about late september because everything is brown and dead. (I sort of like this break… lol)
It’s brought such relief to the area… the lakes are now flooding…. the reservoir is in overflow state…
And it feels very much like a physical metaphor for how things feel right now in my life.
The last year has been hard.
The last few years have been hard.
But now is a chance to breathe.. and have the pressure off… and while it’s still crazy busy, it feels like a time of rest emotionally and mentally.
A much needed one.
