Happy Spring, everyone! I am so very glad to say those words! Spring is a blessing. And that is the perfect bridge to welcome everyone to look for their blessings from the past week. They may be big, they may be smaller, they may be tangible, it may be something that made you laugh or smile, or just something that got you through the day. But no matter the week you've had, it's always a good thing to make time to look for them and be thankful.
~warmth~ it has been a lovely week, weather wise, to welcome the spring season. We have actually been outside without coats this week. So different from just a couple weeks ago. I will soak up every ray of sunshine because it is Southern Alberta after all, and I'm sure some spring snow will be coming at some point.
~ spring clothes ~ because it's gotten warm, and a spring snow is not the same as frigid winter cold, I've tucked away the big sweaters and warmer clothes and moved the spring clothes to the front of closets and drawers. Bye bye darker colored clothes, hello brighter, lighter spring colors.
~ ankle rain boots ~ every spring I've always wished I had a pair of rain boots. Winter boots are too hot, and yet it is still wet and slushy out there. But I've been too cheap to spend what stores were asking. But at the end of the season last year I found a really cute pair at Marshals about 2/3 off the regular price. I only paid $20 and I have worn those things so much already this year. Love them and so glad I didn't hesitate when I saw them on sale.
~ pockets of time to relax ~ It's been so busy the last few weeks and the next couple of weeks will be even more so. I've been very thankful to find pockets of time to just slow down, take a break from the big to do list, and just enjoy a cup of coffee or tea, read a chapter, or just watch a show.
~ a clean house ~ there is something about a nice clean house, isn't there? No matter how tired I am on Friday after the last child leaves, I really try hard to get that vacuum out and give a good going over of the whole upstairs. Sitting down to clean flooring somehow relaxes me. When I don't do it I feel antsy and can't always pinpoint why, but as soon as it's done, it's like a sigh of relief. Weird? Maybe. And can I say how thankful I am for a vacuum cleaner and that I don't have to throw rugs over a fence and beat them?
