Spring is certainly here, and I couldn’t be happier. There is something about this change of season which makes me feel so positive and full of life again – like I really can crack out of this little shell I’ve been living in and get into the world.
I’ve been trying, so hard, to do that. But all the positive thoughts in the world, all the good intentions, sometimes aren’t enough. I’ve been well aware that I need to change the pattern of our day, and the warm weather and sunshine certainly helps kick start me.
So this morning we spent a good hour out the front, kicking and throwing the ball around. Chasing each other, pulling a few weeds out of the garden. We had a picnic lunch on the deck and then played on the swing for awhile and now Lauren and Natalie are both napping, which means I can get a little writing done.
I love it!
Though, settling in to the writing seems to be taking me a little while – my head is full of plans for the garden, and thoughts on what I can sell so that we can finally afford to fence the front yard and make it totally child safe. I am looking forward, immensely, to spending copious amounts of time outdoors and making the most of the weather, the children, and my life.
Eventually, I’ll get some kind of routine in place, one that fits everything in to it. In the meantime, I’m just taking it a day at a time, and being happy with all the things I DO manage to fit in, rather than getting hung up on the things I don’t. Life in general is happier and more productive when you look for the positives I find.
Better get some words down before I run out of time. Hope you are all enjoying your lives too 🙂
