Easy Sunday with a bit of random thrown in for good measure.

February 17, 2013

It’s been a bit of a week here. I’ve got practically nothing constructive done, let alone creative. And you’ve probably felt that by my two measly appearances. Thank you to those of you wonderful friends who sent me little notes asking what’s going on. Thank you dear hearts. You’re loved and appreciated. Things are fine with me, just very taxingly tiring.

Some days are like that.

It’s true I tell you.

Some days are like that.

But then comes the weekend and a chance to reconnect with you and my home and garden. So come see what I see.

Every little green heart is on the move again. I love early spring flowers. They always seem so optimistic.

Yesterday I lifted large bunches of snow drops from the green spaces where people have dumped the bulbs along with their garden refuse. They aren’t good for the indigenous plants or for the urban wildlife that uses the green spaces to move from place to place. Neither can benefit from introduced plants. This is the best time to transplant snowdrops and I’ve planted these little guys in the shade garden under the maples.

In the house the light is soft. This cool wintery light makes the best still life photos I think. Here’s what’s on my bedside table, in my closet and in the James Bond bathroom.

I was so surprised to see some honey bees out on the Mahonia. They’re optimistic little creatures too aren’t they?

I thought I’d be optimistic too and put away my winter coat and bring out the lighter coats for the spring.

And now there’s a little bit of this lovely Sunday left and I think I’ll make some chicken soup, (they say it’s good for the soul), ignore the phone, computer, TV and everything else that’s part of the “real” world, bury my nose in my cat’s fur and look out over the city and watch the sun set. You might disagree, but to me that’s what Sunday’s are for.

I hope your little pink hearts are well rested for the next five days ahead. Grab Monday by the horns, and make it your own. I believe you can. I believe we can. 🙂
Always…

    Glad to hear you’re doing okay. Melancholy hits every now and then. I think cuddling with a kitty and watching the sunset is excellent treatment.

    I believe we can…

    Wonderful to be with you, as always. Enjoyed the walk around your place. I’m grabbing Monday by the horns and am off to work in a few. Have been off work for 6 days, so this Monday will be busy, busy, busy at work. Have a lovely day.
