I haven’t posted very much recently. It’s been a time of reflective – something. It’s winter! Now that I’m in the beginning of our seventh year in the mid-west, well, I feel, I feel…….. what do I feel? I feel that staying indoors in the winter is a good idea. Sorry mid-westerners for judging you.
But Spring is coming. I know that because it’s like the law of gravity. Spring will be here in March whether the weather is warmer or not. It’s a given. But seriously, even though the cold keeps coming back, each week we are gifted with warmer days and more sunshine. The air feels fresh and hopeful. Spring is coming.
I wrote a post in January titled It’s Time to Get Busy. It was about the book I’m
supposed to be writing. I actually wrote the dedication page and two chapters back then. Also the cover is pretty much decided. Then winter break ended and I am with my lovely lassies (the grand daughters) full-time again. Well, the book is a work in progress. I decided not to stress about it. What is the hurry? I want it to be good and if I try to write and care for the girls then it will not be good.
I beat myself up too much about it though. I want perfection and I know I cannot achieve that as a human being so the beatings begin. Anyone else do that? Surely I’m not that unique.
Spring break will arrive in a few short weeks and perhaps another chapter or two will be written. In the meantime, it is still very brown outside and very cold today. Still waiting for snow. May get a little on the weekend. I haven’t been out much to even take photos, so this one will have to tie you over. ;)
