Guy tells me we’re going back to winter for a couple of weeks. I just looked at the 10-day forecast, and I’m seeing cold, not snow, which is okay. Hey! It’s Michigan! That’s how we do things up here. (laugh) I might go out and put a few leaves on the tender sprouts I uncovered this last weekend. They’re all hardy plants, but why stress them if all I have to do is invest a few minutes of my time? Besides, it will get me out of my office for a moment, and sometimes, a moment is all you need to catch your second wind, find that new idea, see that unexpected but logical jump of thought. My mind has been jumping lately, and it’s been an interesting week as I touch on about three different stories in my head, balancing, evaluating, tidying up–each one separate but impacting the other by triggering new thoughts, new directions. It’s been relaxing, almost, finding new space.
Yesterday, though, was a PR day, and I cleared my inbox down to about five things that I simply can’t move forward on until a later date. Today is a work day, and I’m all jazzed up about it. I’ve not had a good, “get lost in the work” day for almost a month, and I’m hungry for it. Ahhhhh.
The birds are starting to pair up and set up territories, which is kind of fun since I’m now starting to see some regulars at the bird bath and feeders right outside my window. There’s one robin in particular who is a very aggressive bather. Nice to have them back. I’ve missed them.
