Wow, what a difference a week makes. This town was getting mighty sad about our lack of warm days and drab brown trees. But now, it is sunny, warm and the world is again wrapped in green! This makes me very happy and makes me reflect on just what is making my heart sing right now.
1. Green, green, and more green! When you have 7 months of Winter, adding another color besides grey or white to the pallet is amazing. Everywhere you look, the trees have this incredible lime green show going on. Just beautiful!
2. Yard Sales! Went to my second of the year today and found some great treasures. Milk glass, Fancy writing paper, a lovely bracelet and a Sterling Silver flatware set. Which is ornate and pretty and I got it for a song. At the same estate sale, my hubby got an old movie projector for FREE! And it works. But I like it for it's vintage style. Think I will find a home for it in the living room.
3. Working Outside. I am giddy with energy. This year I am loving the process of getting my house and yard ready for the Summer Season. Unlike last year when it was all I could do, to just mow the lawn. I have washed all the windows, scraped the front step for painting, mowed and trimmed. Cleaned the garden beds and put out my yard art. Whew~ but it has been fun. And I am looking forward to re-painting the outdoor furniture, creating a new glass art piece, and putting in a new garden bed.
4. Having NO plans. I am not a joiner. No clubs, no regular lunch dates, NO meetings. For the first time in a long time, my time is my own. And I love it. Except for work (and that I adore) I can come and go as I want and when I want. Garden, read, cook or not cook. Put my grubbies on and just plunk myself down on a chair and write. Run out to see my girls or not. Freedom and marching to one's own tune is priceless.
Off I go. Think I will head out to my garden shop and do some dreaming. :)
