I had another notification for a song by Jacob Lee. I liked it, so I thought I’d share it and one from previous that I also like.
I’m enjoying a relaxing day with kids. They’ve been mostly good. We started the day with an Ostara egg hunt of partly dyed boiled eggs, and partly chocolate filled eggs. I did conceed and eat a few chocolate covered cashews- extra yummy.
My kids, however, gorged on sweets as kids usually do. The following sugar crash mellowed them out, but they have had a few tantrum moments. The tantrums made me appreciate their really strong lungs.
Katherine danced with me to music. The verdict is official, Katherine really likes EDM way more than any other music, and she will sing along if she likes the music. She also really likes not wearing pants. Big surprise there. She has lots of moments where I know she’s definitely my child. I found it extra cute that once her pants were off, she put socks and shoes back on.
I’m enjoying this chill day quite immensely. The visual weather and everything turning green is gorgeous. It’s still colder than I’d like, but we uncovered plants to let them get some sun and get watered. They’ll be recovered before the temps do back down again this evening.
May you have relaxing days, ample work and abundant income. May you know that everything is okay and normal will return soon. May you have good things to look forward to. May your goals keep you focused mentally, and may your spare moments be calmed in meditation. May you mostly remain connected to your inner self. May you have faith that the divine and your inner being are bringing you the things you appreciate and desire.
I sit watching a pile of leaves and twigs burn, while listening to sirens of a police apprehension gone wrong. Instead of worrying about the news heard via my ears and neighbor’s words, I’m enjoying the green of my yard.
Everything is sprouting, and today’s new garden discovery is lots of baby hostas in the funny shaped island garden.
I also discovered lots of poison ivy- which I’ve managed to pull most of it up today, wearing gloves of course. Yea! Although one vine snapped my face and another got my ankles. I’ve washed and washed and washed to avoid too much rash and will treat as needed if any appears (thank you Dawn dish-soap).
Anyway, I’m happy to share pictures of my pre-thinning seedlings, and all the other plants. I will thin the babies out in a few days…. ’cause I’ll definitely have the time, and thinning seedlings doesn’t have the same ramifications as thinning humans 😣😆.
Bad joke aside, I hope you’re as excited about things turning green again as I am. I know my kids enjoyed a lot of outside time today. Even my old lady kitty Priss got excited enough to venture outside for a nibble of grass.
May you enjoy time outside and good weather. May you feel safe and secure in your home. May you know that you are protected by God and the good, honest members of law enforcement. May you enjoy spring having sprung and everything turning green. May your pets and children also enjoy all these things as well.
So this week brought a few just plain stupid things at work: proof I work with 40+ year-old teenagers. Boxes appearing where they shouldn’t be, a red pot I put in storage a week ago getting left on a table outside my office, things getting moved, and a decoration being hidden until the day after I took all the rest of the St. Pat’s day stuff to storage. Not to mention being privy to an outside provider’s jacket being hidden from her and other just plain mean actions.
It makes me realize how much I prefer being kind and considerate towards others, even or especially when those others might be cognitively delayed or naive. It takes far less effort to be kind than any one of those pranks took. And kindness never hurts.
I did laugh today. One of the mean girls used a new phrase intended as an insult to the employee most recently fired. Granted that person had caused inconveniences by changing paperwork that should have been left untouched by company policy. However, my laughter was not about who the phrase was directed to, more the rediculosoty of the phrase itself and the way it was said. It was an over the top insult fitting of the personality of the person delivering it. My response was “that’s a new one” with a good laugh. Sometimes those moments are needed, laughter is good medicine, but I had a moment after the fact where I wished it hadn’t been at another person’s expense, and especially that I hadn’t contributed to fanning mean girl flames. There’s more than enough of that to go around to begin with. Perhaps the universe can deliver me some more healthy comedic moments.
Anyway, what the universe did deliver was sunshine and warm enough weather for a wonderful walk. I took pictures of new growth, green beautiful things, Katherine exploring, and Birch trees catching the setting sun. Then when we got home Katherine danced and sung along to a song that SoundHound thought I should listen to. It was a very good spring evening.
