The sun is shinning
The air smells of the moist warm earth
The sweet spring breeze touches my shoulders and cheeks,
Nine robins graze on berries in the mountain ash tree in the back yard…
over head two red tail hawks glide and dance on the warm air currents…
I think I am being told something
Keeping with my word I will label my posts randomly if they have no purpose other than to simply exist. And this will be a short one. I feel it a necessity to write everyday. I write in my when I am trying to fall asleep and have so much I say to myself all day that it has to get out sometime, even if no one listens this isn’t what this is for. It if for me to have a place to spill the shit out of my brain that runs rapid all day or night messing up my important thoughts. I talk to myself out loud if I don’t write it down. The most small random thought can invade a silent moment and stay there like an unwanted gray hair…sticking above all the rest. Here I am! It says…Shut up! I say to it. Does it listen. Nope.
The sun is shining and it reminds me that spring is coming sooner than I thought. Yikes. My springs and summers are so busy I can barely sit still. Plants wait for no one to grow, be grown and be planted and maintained. But hey, they don’t talk back, they smell and look fantastic and are the silent beauties of the world. I am blessed.
Trying not to get overwhelmed by the things around me today is turning out to be easier than I expected. Facing something the instant it is in my mind and clearing it from my to do list has been very satisfying. It is easier to face the small tasks and finish them as soon as they make an appearance as opposed to putting them off and letting them become a nuisance of my mind. It is the easiest way I have found to relieve stress in my life. 🙂
My Goal: Continue at a steady consistent productive pace, accomplishing those things that are in front of you with ease.

Is it summer yet?? Because I could use some continual sunshine blasting onto my skin. Good ol natural vitamin D! Happy little rays bouncing off my face!
The way the sun is shining this morning and the brightness of the morning makes me feel like it should be 60 degrees and warm out already. But to my unfortunate dismay it is freaking cold out there and still slightly winter…Sigh..How many weeks left?! Well when you live in Idaho winter can last as long as it pleases, and without warning it can snow at any time too! Even in the middle of spring it isn’t unlikely.
As I walked the kids to the bus stop this morning the woods called my name! The crisp air-filled my lungs speaking of trails untraveled and awaiting adventures to be had. I actually found my self singing “Oh what a beautiful morning! Oh what a beautiful day! I have a wonderful feeling, everythings going my waaayyy!” I am aware I am a dork 😉 but some days just calls for an outburst in song! At least I didn’t do the “Sound of music” interlude and spin with my arms out as I crossed the lawn. 🙂
So I sit here gazing out the window looking at the clean blue sky wishing my boyfriend was off of work so we could go shooting in the woods and go for a hike down our favorite trails. I love it that he has the same drive and passion for the outdoors that I have. When we go camping we are completely in our element. Raw pure nature…simplistic quiet and perfect. It is our absolute zen place.
May Spring be quick to arrive and full of warm rains. May the flowers bloom brilliantly and the grass go lush and green. Let Summer arrive with the warmth of a freshly awakened sun, sharing its golden rays of invigorating light with us all.
A toast to summer! *clink* May your day be bright and beautiful!
