I'm just enjoying the fresh air. My curtains flap so pretty in the breeze and I am so in love with my door being open in the kitchen. It was 5 years and just a few days ago that we moved into this home after living with my mother-in-law for a year. I slipped *right* away into the swing of running a household. I remember how happy I was to have all the windows open and smell fresh air and to be able to take Nathan outside to play all day long in the grass and yard. Every spring I think about those days and how awesome it was to have my baby in my own household and to be getting things set up and taken care of, etc. I love spring especially for that reason.
I've also managed to stay on my eating *and* exercise program, WOOHOO!!! I'm not really "dieting" but I'm working really hard on 4 things: water, exercise, portion control and remembering to eat (I have a tendency to forget to eat all day long and then just eat at dinner, SO BAD FOR YOU!). I saw Dr Oz giving out tips and the two I'm implementing now are 1)to drink a glass of water before every meal and a glass after the meal and 2) arrange your food on your plate so there's an inch left around the rim of the plate and your food isn't piled up more than 1/2" high.
I hope everyone else is having a blessed Monday instead of a Manic Monday!
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth's dark breast
rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.
-- Percy Bysshe Shelley
