Getting my hands dirty

Posted on April 28, 2008. Filed under: Random Thoughts | Tags: |

It had been a long week. Lots of daily work stuff going on, some good, some bad. You know, one of those weeks we all have.

But this weekend, I actually did something different. I unplugged as much as I could, and my wife and I went out, bought some plants and replanted our garden. It’s not anything that no one else has done. We couldn’t find a way to use Web 2.0 technologies to make the event more social, interact with gardeners worldwide, or set up a system in which the plants could communicate via FriendFeed.

We didn’t even take any pictures.

But at the end of the morning, as it started to rain, I packed up the bags of weeds, old plants and dead leaves, went inside and took a shower (Because I was actually dirty, not because it’s the appropriate thing to do each day), and today, feel like I actually did something that I’ll be able to see two months from now without having to use a search function of any kind.

Of course, now I am posting it on a blog to end the romance of it all. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.
