The sun shone yesterday and even if it is not so shiny today I refuse to be deterred…. I feel like we have finally turned a corner. The dark days of winter are on the decline and we can look ahead to some spring goodness, and I am not just talking about the weather either. The sunshine makes me feel like the world is full of wonderful possibilities…
Seeds have been planted, there are blossoms on the fruit trees and I can almost taste the fruit and veggies we will grow this season.
The grass is green again and it won’t be long before the plastic grave yard returns to the backyard, evidence of afternoons spent outside playing and jumping on the trampoline.
The chickens are laying eggs and we’ve marked the next farmers market dates on the calendar – we have plans for more hens and a rooster and maybe one day there will be chicks of our own!
The Twindoes are totally immersed in ballet lessons and birthday parties and we are almost into the last term of kinder and ballet. Soon the concert will be upon us! eek!
Muski is busy pointing and climbing and perhaps the lure of playing outside will inspire steps as well.
The shops are full of summer clothes and we window shop and dream and make plans for summer outfits and new swimmers.
We are making secret plans for Christmas and quietly hoping it all comes together in time.
We have an appointment with the architect and I can almost see my renovations being built before my eyes when I look out my kitchen window. It feels so close that I can almost touch it…I can sense the feeling of home I am dreaming of when it is all done.
It is officially the first day of spring here tomorrow and it just seems so full of amazing dreams and good things ahead. Sure I will probably only achieve a quarter of the plans I dream up while laying in the middle of the trampoline in the sunshine, but half the fun is in the dreaming isn’t it?
