The last few days have been almost spring like with the warmer tempertures in the 50s and 60s and the sun shining all the time... The rains that have fallen the last few days have brought the dark cloudy skys that are quite like the skies of early March and April. Puffy grey clouds, distant rumbles of thunder, and then sudden downpours of rain. I noticed like so many others that my daffodils and hyacinths are peeking out of the ground throughout my yard. Such signs make me even more eager for the coming months ahead. Change is slowing coming.
For me this is a time of cleansing, change and creation. It is much like pulling down the drapes from large windows through out the home of myself as a means to once again allow the sun to shine through my windows. Opening the windows and allowing the fresh breeze to blow through me filling me with its energy of what is to come.
Today, I start the seedlings that will eventually become the addition to my flower and herb garden. Also on my plate is a continuous of my spring cleaning. I am eager to get this completed as then I will start the cleansing of my household. Something that if all goes well will start next weekend. Although the weather has been warmer, I still need to tend the birds outdoors. I can tell that Spring is close at hand as they are more active then ever. You can already see the mating courtships beginning. The pairs of ducks frequent our pond in the early morning and something before night. The cardinal males do their strut to impress. It seems as if all of nature is eager for mother earth to once again wake.
Of course also there are the football games.. Although I am not sure that I will sit and watch them for their entire time slot. I am sure I will take a seat now and then to enjoy some game food and drink with Vincent. Mexican tacos and queso are on the menu today. For those of you who do not know what that is... Diced up beef sauteed with onions and choice spices... spooned into a corn tortilla with plenty of cilantro and lime juice... Yummy...
All in all it looks to be a full day. Hoping your Sunday is relaxing and enjoyable... See you tomorrow.
