Filling buckets and lighting fires
I've filled an awful lot of buckets lately. We finished spreading our cubic yard of Black Garden Soil last night...bucket by bucket. And I can tell you all about filling buckets...
It's messy. That black dirt gets all over the place.
It's tiring. It's hard on your back.
It's over and over. The big bag of dirt never seems to end.
The stuff at the bottom is even harder to dig than the stuff on top, because it's so packed down.
If that is education...
I'd rather light fires.
