The last month or so has been a blur; usually that means things have just been so busy that nothing of note comes quickly to mind. In this case, I have been so lethargic (because I’ve been unwell) and anxious (about our upcoming move and lack of a location to move to yet) that I have mentally been on vacation. Days run together like butter melting into the soup that is my mind.
I don’t know if it was the change in weather, time changing, or the new herbal supplement I’m taking, but the last few days have been pretty wonderful.
We’ve had a lot of snowfall here in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains this winter. I really enjoy the snow; it’s so beautiful and quiet, and people tend to stay home so there’s no traffic (not that there is usually more than a couple of cars an hour!). Sledding down the hills with my Honey is so much fun! Last weekend the temperature rose to about 70° and most of the snow melted. The temp dipped during the week but this past Saturday it rose to just above 70° and it was gloriously sunny. Shorts, sunglasses, sunscreen, and Katy Perry singing about California Girls on my SoundSpot while I rocked in the hammock overlooking the shimmery lake and grasses bowing under the breeze had me in a summery state of mind. It was a wonderful respite to the glumness.
This was Saturday:
And this was Sunday:
Hubby had Monday off since he couldn’t get his work truck out of the driveway because of all the snow. It was a great day to spend together. We did some Spring Cleaning and got a great video of some deer looking for some bushes to nibble near the house.
We also made a simple but yummy St. Patrick’s Day dinner. Well, I thought it was yummy, but Mr. Picky Eater didn’t like the cabbage! Oh well, he’s getting better…at least he ate it.
