I adore gardening. It's much more satisfying to me than house work...as can be easily deduced by the state of my house vs. the state of my yard on most days.
I put two front flower beds to bed for the winter today. Well mostly. I left a few of the pretty flowering plants in until they die.
It's so reassuring that I won't wake up tomorrow to find that all my hard work has been undone and all the weeds replanted.
And that is why yard work is superior to house work.
