One of the good things about having a blog where I am the boss is that I don’t have to post an entry if I don’t feel like it. I know that’s not very considerate to any of you who might be hanging out to see what happened when I mowed the lawns on the weekend (nothing of consequence btw), but hey, as my Dad says… life’s not fair. Besides, at least you know when I do write it’s because I really want to, and not because I have to, therefore it’s from the heart.
So hello! How are you? I’m doing very well thanks. We have gone from snow (graupel) to sunshine and I’m finally getting the sense that Spring is upon us. I can’t wait. As I’m sure you’re aware by now, winter is just like a long miserable nightmare for me, which makes the arrival of spring (and then summer) pretty much the most exciting thing EVER.
Aside from Christmas, of course. Christmas will always be my number one.
I am determined to make the most of summer this year. I will be beaching and BBQ-ing, and not interrupting the sunshine with a pesky sojourn to the winter wonderlands of LA and NYC like I did last summer. Okay, that wasn’t exactly a bad problem to have, but it did mean I didn’t get a whole lot of summer and I’m trying to look on the bright side. Pun intended.
You might have picked up from my last entry that there has been some extremely saddening stuff going on of late, and as a result I’m doing my best to appreciate all the good stuff. Because life really is a bit too short, right? And you never know if your life is going to be even shorter than is fair and just. I’m not promising to never complain again (I kind of enjoy complaining sometimes, so if it brings me joy then it’s almost a positive thing, right? No?) but I am going to try to open my eyes a bit more and think about the bigger picture.
I’m going to try to stop and smell the roses and enjoy the little things. Including the little creatures who bade me farewell as I left for work this morning…
