Some times you just have to take a day off. Today was that day! No excuses, but reasons. It was sunny today, the temps are warm. It’s 73 in the shade of the back deck right now as I write this at 3 in the afternoon.
I could wear sandals without my toes getting cold today and I do love my sandals. Little Bear needed to take a walk through the neighborhood and make sure no houses had moved. The yard needed someone to walk around it and inspect for signs of spring. And signs of spring were found, the bulbs have poked their heads up about 3 inches already. The roses are starting to bud, the pansies are blooming.
Hmm, what other reasons can I come up with?
Okay, no excuses, but it felt good to take a walk in sandals and a sleeveless shirt today. It was wonderful to open the windows in the house and let the breeze come in. There’s nothing like those first spring breezes after winter to rejuvenate a soul. To take a walk and wave hello to neighbors you haven’t seen since last fall. I think almost everyone on our road is out today in their yards.
I have missed the warmth of the sun. The weatherman says tomorrow will bring strong storms and wind, followed by temperatures returning to normal for February. Soon the change of the weather means I will have to make a batch of flea spray for the dogs, and I’ll have to work mowing into the schedule. I’ll need to think about what to plant in the garden this year, and whether or not to turn it by hand. Soon I’ll have to think about the repairs that need done outside and cleaning up the yard from the dogs all winter. But not today.
Sometimes you just have to stop and enjoy the day. Today was that day.
I am refreshed and recharged, I can go to the studio now.
