We’ve been having such beautiful weather here. Some places wait for the snow to melt when winter is over, but in western Oregon -after a long winter of rain- we wait for the sun to return. It’s amazing how much sunshine and flowers have been feeding my spirit. I want to soak it all up to the fullest- smell every flower, watch every bee. I’m so happy it’s spring! (Today was so hot outside, it felt like we skipped straight ahead to summer.) I have lots of indoor activities keeping me busy this week, and haven’t been able to spend quite as much time outside as I would like to, but I savor every chance I get to be out in it. Our family has been eating breakfast outside some mornings, and enjoying snacks out there too. We point out each new flower blooming, and remind each other it’s time for another drink break to have some cold tea. We all agree that’s best done out in the grass with bare feet.
