This year, more than any I remember recently, I’ve been waiting, willing spring to arrive. It’s not that we had a harder winter than normal, because we didn’t. It’s not that I was locked up in the house more than usual, because I wasn’t.
I’m not sure why there is such a feeling of urgency toward the seasonal change this year, but there was. It IS officially spring. But I don’t think Mother Nature got the memo! 🙂 At least where I am living.
I am a gardener, have already been out clearing the winter kill from the beds, and looking at seed catalogues, but old man winter keeps layering that white stuff down on top of my efforts. And I want to see my garden bloom!
I think my rush to see the seasons change, to see winter put to rest, is that it aligns with my work schedule right now and I have many things that are finally going to be completed somewhere in the next week or two – right around when the last of Old Man winter’s attempt at keeping a stronghold on the land are done.
It’s been a long winter – in many ways. I had a slow start to the New Year as I crashed over Christmas for a much needed break but then as I picked up the pace, I got slammed. My own doing – of course 🙂 I’m the one that signed up to put, not one, but all my books into audio this spring. I just hadn’t understood the work load I’d be facing.
Another week and my initial part in this process should be done. I’m anxious to switch from having a million things on my plate to just a thousand or two. 🙂 And as the timing coincides with the current season change, Spring is looking awfully good right about now! Now if I could just remember to stop and smell the roses a little more often this year!
How about you? Is there anything that you are trying to finish off, bring to a close, get rid of any way and find that spring is a good time to do so?
