Is It Really.....?

Category: Ramblings | Posted: Mon Mar 16, 2015 12:18 am

Is it really almost the first day of spring?
Is it really raining after a week of gorgeous weather and work?
Are the dandelions really trying to go to seed before I've had a chance to do ant weeding?
Was it really October the last time I wrote in my blog?

The daffodils are blooming!
The magnolias are blooming!
The neighbors willow tree is chartreuse green!
The rain is heavy and the day is gray with the flowering trees bright!
Bright yellow
Bright white
Bright pink
Soft pink
Soft lavender

Lots of color with new grass, sweet dandelion leaves
Old blooms still bright from hellebores and heathers

Where have the months gone?
Work is my joy as much as my garden. Like the garden there is always so much to do and so little time. Students I have been concerned about I have volunteered to tutor before school, making a busy day even fuller.

Laughing Yoga? Yes, a class a week. It has been interesting to see how your body and brain reacts to laughter even when it is forced. My exercise is gardening and laughter yoga now :D.

The benefits of laughter yoga are here if you are interested http://www.laughteryoga.org/english/laughteryoga/details/225. No jokes, just laughter. It is always interesting to see new people giving it a try. Laughing yoga is not what many think.

Have also entered into the world of aromatherapy. Accidentally introduced by staff that are very attached to a particular brand of essential oils. Never one to follow a lead or believe the preacher I have now a nice small library and apothecary to fit my needs. Another fun little hobby.

Well the Sun is trying to peek out for a moment, so will grab the trowel and see if a few weeds will relinquish their grip on the earth. Happy day to all.
