Yesterday ... and today... was spring-like. In the 70's. A bit soupy today with the cloudiness and occasional misty rain. But a cold front is on its way that will plummet our temps back down into the 40s during the daytime and 20's and 30s at night. It'll arrive sometime tonight and last for a few days... bringing winter to our back doors again. Which is fine. Good actually! I'll crank up the fireplace and enjoy that too... making some Beef Stew tomorrow.
What else to do? Yesterday I got myself moving and bought nine bags of mulch and soil and did a little yard work. For which I am now paying .... with soreness, but a good kind of soreness. It was a nice day. Norman loved it. Getting out into the yard all day long, except for the wonderful little nap we took in the early afternoon.
There is nothing like getting out and getting dirty and digging in the garden to make you feel alive and giving you a sense of accomplishment. Also makes you feel that much better to sit and put your feet up later on in the day and say, "Yes, I deserve this guilty pleasure of (you fill in the blank)"....
Hope you too are finding what makes you happy and enjoying "right now".....
