A Few Reasons To Smile

Just wanted to share a few things that have put a smile on my face today:

First of all - YOU! If you haven't read each others comments from the last post - please do. You are all so bloody insightful! I really enjoyed reading everyone's ideas about perception and planning for the worst vs expecting the worst, and so on. I am basking in your brilliance!

Next - this tea makes my heart sing. Well...my tummy actually. I'm not sure if you can get it all year where you are, but I buy it in bulk when it comes out in the Fall around here. It's perfect for an after dinner tea - especially if you've had a few too many bites of spicy Italian sausage!



What is out right now, at every grocery store and flower shop is pots of min-daffodils. I've been buying these sweet things like crazy. I love the smell and the sunny yellow makes my day.

I'm usually listening to really upbeat music while at work to keep me awake while bookkeeping. but the last few days I've had Michael Buble's new album "Crazy Love" on, and it's just wonderful. (And I didn't fall asleep once!)

And lastly, all this talk of Ostara/Spring Equinox I'm hearing has got me hopping! I am so ready for Spring! I helped my mother plant her peas this weekend, and I'm trying to get my brother moving to help me build garden boxes in the back yard. I'm also trying to decide what I'm going to do to observe the Sabbat this year.

I hope the Spring energy is heading your way, and you are finding plenty of reasons to smile!

I imagine this is a busy time of the year for you -- year end for some and income tax time for everyone. Enjoy the daffodils and Buble!

You truly made me smile while I was reading your blog this morning...you really do have good positive and happy energy. :) It's just so amazing when those moments come up that we have our childlike wonder and joy. I'm a small town girl also and life is so much different in a small town....keep your smile on your face and hold on to your joy today.

I also want to say thank you for taking the time to help me with the situation with my dad. I think he really is depressed and he's at the point where he needs to get out of here. No one wants to be talked to like that, especially tenants who pay their rent to live here!!

Have an awesome day girl!!

I have never seen the candy cane tea yet will keep an eye out. I am always trying new flavors. My favorite at the moment is blackberry pomegranent...

I love multiple comments and differing perspectives... It always seems to help me see something that I may not have before.

Spring is definitely in the air. And like you I am crazy to start planting. This weekend is daylight savings time and we get to turn our clocks forward... which means it will stay dark longer into the night.. I just love it...
