Cheering myself up with pictures of pretty flowers from sunny places.
I think that spring is now on it’s way, I want to believe and I don’t want to jinx it. So when it dumps another three feet of snow tomorrow you can blame me.
All I want is to not worry about slipping and falling on my walk to work. Also I would like to get my scooter out. Lastly I would like to see green and flowers because that always makes me feel way better about everything. It’s hard to get motivated and excited when it’s gloomy out. In the meantime I’ll plan another tea time with Eeyore, he understands.
It rained today but was kind enough to stop for my walk home. I love the smell after rain and especially at this time of the year when the trees are starting to flower. Right now the white flowers are out, smelling amazing. They lift my mood as I walk and I can see the buds on the pink trees almost ready to come out and then the lilacs will come.
I love the smell of lilacs and am eagerly anticipating them. I love the honey suckles as well. So fresh and pretty I can’t wait. Even my dog will stop to smell the honey suckles.
For now though I’m really happy that the white flowers are here.
I was going to come home after work and ride my bike. Have I mentioned how much I LOVE my new bike? I do and as I left work the sky darkened and as soon as I started my walk home it started to rain. Not hard but more like a heavy drizzle and it reminded me of the rain in Paris.
Ahhh the Eiffel Tower…..
It rained a couple of times when we were in Paris and while walking in the rain looking around I noticed something.
Nobody was running for cover, there were a few umbrella’s but not many. People just kept walking, kept going about their business like nothing was happening. So they were getting a little wet, it didn’t even seem to phase them. Here everybody seems to run for cover, reaches for an umbrella or their rain coat. It’s like over hear we are related to the Wicked Witch and water will kill us. Even in the light shower today people were swearing, hanging out inside, suddenly hailing a cab.
I like the walk in the rain, I did have a raincoat so I was prepared but the rain makes everything smell so much better. I found the drizzle soothing. So I wouldn’t get out on my bike today, that’s okay. I get to walk in the rain instead and the sidewalks were pretty clear so I didn’t have to avoid the slow walking weavers.
By the time I got home I felt great, very refreshed and my head felt clear. Also I know that when the sun comes back out everything will start to look green and the lilacs and apple blossoms will be out soon. That is truly my favourite time of year to walk home. I walk through an older neighborhood to get home and there are so many flowering tree’s. Not only do they look amazing, the smell….. oh the smell is just divine.
Although my plans were changed, as they so often are by weather, I was reminded of Paris, which always makes me smile. Also reminded that Spring is here and soon the blossoms will be out. A time of renewal, a time to put your best foot forward and perhaps blossom as well!
(Also gives me another reason to think about buying a brightly coloured pair of wellies! I think a pair of bright pink wellies would make me happy…… I’m pretty easy to please…..)
I think spring is here! Now if it snows again you can blame me.
Amazing what a little sunshine can do to lift your mood. Out on my bike on the weekend, a lovely walk home from work today and then off to yoga. I’m feeling human again. AND I have my scooter back on the road!
Feeling very optimistic and getting things done. Spring always a new start, clean the slate and get back on track. For some reason February and March were really hard, I just had no energy and just wanted to stay home by myself, sit on my ass and do nothing. Which is kinda what I did.
Now I feel rejuvenated and am making lists to get back on track. I have energy again, the funk is gone. Now I wonder how I ended up there but when it happens you can’t stop it. I think part of it was post vacation funk and part of it just tired of the cold. Maybe I just need to hibernate and now it’s spring and time to come out of hiding.
I’m totally ready to take on the world again and no longer feel like sitting on my ass doing nothing. Let’s hope the feeling lasts (I think it will) and carry me right through the summer. Maybe next year I’ll need a sunny location to look forward to in February or March to get me through those last few months of winter.
