Still Dreaming of Spring...
Blueberry picking. 4 Girlfriends + 8 kids + a sunny, warm day = Bliss!
These are the things I think of when there is a foot of snow outside my door, and I really should be shovelling my way out to go to the office. Another cup of coffee, cats chittering away at the birds in the trees, and me - dreaming of Spring.
I know I'm supposed to embrace each season. Appreciate each turn of the Wheel. But January and July are not my favourite months. One is far too cold, and one is far too hot. I'm a little like Goldilocks - I like things....just right.
I'm also trying to get back to my daily practice. I've had two weeks of sporatic meditation and ocassional yoga, and not nearly enough walking, and my body and mind are feeling the lack.
What do you do to get back to 'real life' after the holidays? I've done my cleaning - which is a start. But the organizing is going slow, and the move is going slower. Any ideas to kick up some energy, when all I feel like is hiding inside?
Maybe I'll pull some of these blueberries out of the freezer. A little cobbler never hurt anyone. And perhaps that will count as "doing something" today! I'll just say that I'm taking my motivation, one blueberry at a time.
