What is it about the Spring?
Tuesday, May 20, 2014
Some people think of New Year's as a time for starting over and change. I know I joined SP just after New Year's in 2012 so I feel that need to make resolutions (and try to stick with them).
But still, something about the spring always appeals to me like no other time. It seems to inspire me and motivate me. I feel like I have new energy and I want to tackle new projects, and just get stuff DONE. There's probably some biological explanation dating back to our ancestors, but all I know is that I enjoy feeling this way every year around this time.
This past weekend, I planted all my annual flowers, deck boxes, pots, etc. Planted some container tomatoes on the deck, set up the fountain in the garden (love the sound of running water out there and inside with the window open). Took a long bike ride. I finally found and bought a new chair for my MIL, which I'd been trying to find for a few weeks The hummingbird feeder is set up and I'm watching them through the kitchen window. I just picked a big bouquet of lilacs from the yard and arranged a vase on the table. LOL, just wish there was some way to bottle how I feel this time of year, and pull it out in the middle of winter.
