Yesterday, I was in the backyard and spied the little miniature daffodils in full bloom. A bit of color while the rest of nature slowly wakes up. I find spring to be slowly evolving and then "poof" one day it's just there. Spring has arrived, the trees are budding and leafing, the birds are madly singing to each other. When I went to get the mail, I did not wear a coat, what decadence.
I even heard the spring peepers on a walk last week before the cold weather hushed them a temporarily. I hope they are doing fine and will once more serenade me on my walks. Three days in a row the sun has been out and I've been enjoying those rays. Cloudy dreary days, one after the other weigh me down mentally this year more so than ever.
Are you ready for the Easter weekend? I'm slowly getting there. I've got lots of lists and I'm adding more to the lists than checking the items off. That's okay though, if it's documented, the task exists and will be completed. The tasks I don't document....well those are the ones I worry about.
The past two mornings, I've successfully woke up before the alarm (a personal goal) so I think my body is adjusted to the time change. I think. Today is also the first day that nothing hurts in my joints after the whirlwind visit to NYC (update: my hands still ache). Being patient and listening to my body is one of the best gifts I give myself. And yet I resist to listen.
Last night, I cast on another new knit project after falling down the rabbit hole of looking at patterns. Later today I'm going to sit and focus on adding more stitches. Bliss!
More likely than not, the weekend post will be posted on Monday instead of Sunday because of the holiday. I like the idea of a true day of rest and I bet most of you will be busy as well with family, food, visitors or visiting family and eating their food.
See you all on Monday!!
