Has Spring, Sprung?

It’s Friday!!  Friday’s are especially wonderful.  Why is that?  It’s a day like any other.  It’s the day preceding two days away from the office, yes, but what is so special about these two days, anyway?  I am one that loves productivity and usually my weekends are greatly lacking in that area.  Often times I will get up on Monday morning with lower back pain from my lack of productivity.

I begin every weekend the same way, with a list of things I can do to keep busy, and while I do most of them, it is simply not enough to keep me as active as my body would like.  I keep telling myself that as soon as the weather breaks and we are blessed with warm temperatures and a blazing sun, that I will finally be able to get outside and enjoy some me time.  I thoroughly enjoy walking meditations, meaning walking while being fully conscious of my surroundings.  Listening to the hum of the universe, the birds playing and singing and the wind rustling the trees.  Seeing all the vibrant colors the world has to offer, the hundreds of shades of green that make up the trees, grass, and the flowers.

Spring is coming.  It’s on its way.  As I went out this morning to start my car to allow it to warm up before heading to the gym, I heard the birds singing off in a distance.  That is enough to tell me that we are getting close.  There is light at the end of this season, after all.  It’s been a long cold winter.  We are feeling a bit caged at this point, but we are finally going to be free to roam, once again.

Well, I’m working from home today due to the big storm.  I have been up since five this morning and it has been non-stop sleeting for the past two hours.  I am sitting here wondering how I am supposed to get my boys to work today.  It’s pretty scary.  I know I ma not planning on going out.  Not even to go see my mother.  I just can’t do it.  I am going to finish up my reconciling and then move on to cleaning my house and constructing my “Operation Size 12” vision board.  It is going to be a nice quiet, warm day in the house.

Unfortunately it looks like I am not going to get my mom the ingredients for her world-famous stuffing.  I wished to have her make it for me this year because it has been so many years since I have had it, and I thought it would be the perfect touch to my Christmas dinner.  Oh well if I can’t get it to her I will have her make it with me using FaceTime on my new iPhone that my bosses got me.  Yes, I know I am spoiled, and I love it.  It is the best piece of electronics I have ever owned.  It’s my new favorite toy.

Anyway, I am just about finished with my work.  Both of my kitties are sleeping so peacefully.  One on each rocking chair. They are the epitome of what is right with the world.  I love to watch them sleep.  They are what love it.  🙂
