A Brand New Day


By this afternoon both children will be home for the weekend.  This pristine coffee table will be filled with books, computers, pens, earbuds, and scraps of paper.  Our daughter will return to her apartment for work on Monday but our son will have a spring break for a week.  The groceries are bought and the menu is planned.  I am ready!

To be truthful, I've been lax in my yoga practice and the unexpected snow this past week has made walking daily a challenge.  In turn my sleep has suffered.  Yesterday was a brand new day, I did my yoga in the morning and in the afternoon walked with Frodo.  Oh my, simple medicine for my overall well being.  I'm thankful that I figured this out quickly.  Phew!

Spring is taking it's time arriving.  Everywhere is brown and today the skies are gray.  Each morning as I sip my coffee, I hear the robins calling to each other and my resident sparrow sing chirpily - she has become quite vocal.  Yesterday, Frodo sat on his stoop in the backyard keeping an eye out for activity.  Since he is five years old, he's slowed down considerably.  He seems to relish laying in the sunshine and just 'being'.

I hope your Easter weekend is filled with family and friends.

** just a note that the weekend post might be on Monday morning.  Maybe I'll post Sunday night but then maybe I won't.

  2. I know we have discussed this before, but I really think it would be wonderful if we were closer to share our days since they are so similar. I am so happy your babies are returning home and I know you all will have a wonderful time.
    Happy Easter.

  14. Enjoy your time with all your family at home, I often think of you when my table is in constant clutter from mess and know all too soon our kids will be gone.. so i try to just roll with it and know I will have a tidy house one day. Autumn is taking its time coming and we are getting daily walks in. Time to plant spring bulbs here where I bet yours are starting to pop up.

  19. Happy Easter! I know just what you mean about the clean coffee table becoming not so clean once the kids arrive. Only here it's our whole cottage, not just the coffee table. :-)
