Spring 2020

I’ve been trying to write for 2 days now.

Normally, when I sit behind the laptop, an idea appears and I can start writing. Not this week… I have no idea why.

So, I’ve decided to do more pictures today than words. I’ve taken some pictures of what is going on in my garden about an hour ago, and spring is definitely here, except the weather is still not quite there – very windy with lowish temperatures, but I’m sure that we’ll soon be gasping for breath! So, without much ado, here is spring in my garden!

Nasturtium
Clivia in late afternoon sun.
Lavender in soft light.
Daisies.

So there you have it, blog friends! A few pieces of my garden. I hope where ever you are, that you can find joy in your surroundings.

Until next time, stay safe, stay healthy and happy. 🙂

A Positive Sunday.

Birthday flowers still giving joy!

Sunday.

What a contrast this day is to last weekend! However, today I refuse to dwell on my feelings – since I am alone, it will only drag me down, which is something I don’t need right now.

So…I am going to concentrate on positives, and hope, and the light at the end of the tunnel, etc.

It is a cool, cloudy day today, which is my favourite kind of day. I’ve already taken Daisy (the border collie x that rules the roost around here) for a long walk, so : exercise – check. (I have it on good authority that walking is good for the soul – give it a try!)

I am busy making lunch which will consist of 2 lamb chops and sweet potato fries with olive oil and rosemary – baked in the oven. Cannot wait! Oh yes, with a glass of glorious red wine from our area, of course.

The rest of the day will probably be spent in front of the TV with my knitting – current project : beanies for my oldest son, since the one he is currently wearing has most definitely seen better days! Mom to the rescue!!!

I am also grateful that I had guests in my little guest house this weekend, which I consider a huge blessing after 5 months of absolutely no business. 🙂

And on top of all that, I am still enjoying the beautiful flowers I received on my birthday from my children, as well as the yummy Lindt chocolate that I started off on last night.

All my favourites in one package…YUM!

I am still healthy through all of this hullabaloo which is also known as 2020, so all in all, blog friends, a huge amount to be thankful for!!!

I am making it my mission to smile a lot more (I normally feel like an idiot when I smile for nothing), to look for the positives every single time I feel glum, and to express my gratitude for my blessings more often.

Until next time, look out for the positives, they are all around you!! 😀
