Early Sat morning a friend and I took a hike..
and when you got to the top there were chairs to rest your weary bones..
After I got home I raked some more and walked around the gardens finally, finally we are starting to see spring. We have been so cold and so rainy and our winter was soooo long I thought the spring flowers forgot to bloom.
But they are and it does the soul good to see them.
They wave at me in the breeze to let me know they are there...
I am so thankful they are blooming it gives me hope for the summer.
The birds are back the fickle little things. Most of the winter we didn't have many now all colors and sizes!
I have done a bit of thrifting but I am trying so hard to keep it to a minimum. Who could pass up these child size hand thrown pottery pieces for .50 each! sweet on a windowsill.
I got 6 new shades for my light in the dining room the ones I had were old and darker. 6/3.00 deal.
I have had the worst time sleeping. It is starting to affect a lot.
I have tried everything dark room, meditating,aroma therapy, no chocolate, coffee etc after noon time, I drink sleepy tea, or hot water and lemon. So I walk, I walk, and walk, and walk to tire myself out and if I don't walk, I eat to try and keep the energy up! The weight I have lost is slowly creeping on. I have taken sleeping pills and benadryl but I feel so crappy the next day it is not worth it for me. Yesterday I was up and out early, I hiked came home and raked and then took a short walk I was beat. A nice shower and I went to bed and fell asleep right away. I wake up, it is still dark but I think it has to be 4 or 4:30 nope 12:15 I was in bed at 10:30. So now I am awake! I do nod off now and then for no more than 15 minutes at a time. I got so sick of it I was up at 5:30. So today I walked I sure hope this turns around soon.
We are in for a cold wet week this week so not much going on.
Have a wonderful week!
