Do you ever feel like when you catch up with friends that there isn’t enough time to catch up on everything?
Life moves quickly and we often don’t spend time catching up on the small details of life. I recently discussed the magic of ordinary days and feel we need to value those days. As I link up with Anne and Christine for Love the Everyday series, I felt today would be a great time to appreciate the small details.
Excited About: I’ve never been as excited as I am about Spring time. February was a difficult month for me due to many reasons and the minute the calendar became March everything felt different. We are having extraordinary weather in Kentucky with temperatures more like late April (but I will take it). I have flowers blooming that don’t normally bloom and I truly feel the promise and hope of the rebirth of nature. (The flowers above are from my yard.)
Planning: With Spring time comes the need to think about outdoor needs. I’m making a list of what we will need to accomplish as the weather becomes warmer. There will be the obligatory weed pulling, new mulch, some outside painting and new cushions for the patio. (I’m also desiring new chairs for my porch.)
Reading: I do not typically read multiple books at a time but I find myself reading through several. If you are wanting a quick inspirational read, try Be the Miracle: 50 Lessons for Making the Impossible Possible. The author provides beautiful real life stories that truly provide motivation for the day. I’m also reading Mind over Medicine: Scientific Proof that You Can Heal Yourself. Our mind is extremely powerful and I have witnessed this power in clients and patients I have worked with.
Listening To: 90’s on 9 on SirrusXM Radio in the car. Would someone tell me how Brittany Spears’ Hit Me Baby One More Time is 17 years old? I confess I do Carpool Karaoke on a regular basis and sometimes surprise myself at the words to songs I know.
Watching: James and I have been watching The People vs O.J. Simpson as part of our Friday nights at home. It’s always interesting to look at things in hindsight. I also think the casting and acting is amazing.
Letting Go Of: I continue to work on my 40 bags in 40 days project. It’s such a wonderful feeling to purge items whether it be clothing or papers. I’ve redone our two kitchen pantries and am almost finished with the office. We’ve also donated clothes, recycled more paper than I care to admit and moved a few things to a pile for the annual neighborhood yard sale.
Eating: Continuing to enjoy our Hello Fresh Meals. If you aren’t familiar with this subscription box, it is a healthy meal delivery service. You choose the recipes you want for the week and EVERYTHING is delivered to your door. The delivery schedule is flexible and you can choose from 3 to 5 meals per week for two or a family. The weekly price for two people with three meals in $69.00. I would love to provide three people with a FREE box. If you are interested, please leave your email in the comments above.
Frustrated With: Although I am typically technology savvy, I need help with photo storage. I’m continuously receiving Storage Almost Full warnings on my iphone. There has to be a better way and I’m looking for suggestions. What is out there? What works?
Participating In: James and I will be taking part in the Shamrock Shuffle this Saturday. It’s a 3K Run/Walk benefiting Habitat for Humanity. The biggest deal is James and I are doing this together. One of us in this relationship has a competitive nature which has resulted in the two of us doing things separately!
Looking Forward To: We have another trip to Las Vegas planned for next month and I’m in need of getting away. We are staying at The Cromwell, a boutique hotel on the strip. There will be a trip to Hoover Dam, a spa day and fantastic food. We’re also seeing Brittany Spears in concert!
