Right now, I am…
:: welcoming in the spring by opening all the windows and doors.
:: thinking over the recent housing mess and knowing that we won’t be renters forever.
:: wearing a floral thrift store skirt and two headscarves. Fancy!
:: considering new semi-regular blog post topics that will combine my love of radical feminist history and tea.
:: hoping that the whether will remain nice and cool for a little while longer.
:: loving the smell of orange blossoms outside our front and back door.
:: singing songs of spring! For She will bring the buds in the spring and laugh amidst the flowers…
:: laughing at the inexhaustible presence of joy in our lives if we just take part in its effervescent laughter!
:: enjoying quite hours in a quiet house.
:: smiling at my puppy who is covered in bits of flowers and leaves after time spent dutifully exploring what the winds have stirred up in our backyard adventure park.
:: deciding what recipes to invest more time in next – Chai blends? Cacao creations? Special oils blends for wellness?
:: feeling excited by the arrival of family later this week and going to the RV show!
:: readying myself for that same RV show and the strong urge to get on the road now.
:: brewing teas for fertility and to support all different sorts of reproductive bits.
:: considering the all important question of what color to paint my nails – and then back to the issue of neighborhood peace, city peace, state peace, country peace, and eventually, of course, world peace. But first, the nails.
:: working on that same Materia Medica for Borage (Borago officinalis).
:: reading new herb books that I got for my birthday (and have been checking out of the library for years): A City Herbal by Maida Silverman, Encyclopedia of Herbal Medicine by Andrew Chevallier, and The Book of Herbal Wisdom by Matthew Wood.
:: listening to my birthday mix still. Birthday month dance party!
:: grateful for the incredible support of folks who are experiencing similar struggle as us and yet, without hesitation, offer more than we could ever ask for.
:: remembering that the promise of spring is a gift freely given and one that should be freely received.
:: feeling all sorts of good stretch and soreness by a regular yoga practice made possible by an early birthday gift.
:: wanting to say thanks for the ever-growing support of our quirky Apothecary.
:: wishing everyone a moment today to know balance as we step firmly into spring.
