spring bloom

and it's all gone now, the aching head the slowness in my body was gone this morning. and with the sunshine around me, already in the morning, it's pulling me out of doors, out to sit and linger, out to run and enjoy the freshness of it all, out to breath and inhale the lightness of spring.

i enjoy it and look forward to the coming weeks.

looking to the mountain

the fresh green and the spring flowers i posted yesterday are nurishing and getting me all excited about the change of weather. the season of spring to come...

and then there is that migrane...
it was getting a hold of me on sunday and with some ibuprofen i was able to fend it off on monday, though had to call it an early evening. it is very unusual for me to be in a dark room, pretending to sleep, but not finding the sleep. not that the migrane was very bad, it was just there and dirsupting my life. taking away a fun evening chattering and enjoying my life in the kitchen, with the kids and other people. finaly i was able to fall a sleep and wake up at 4am with still that nagging pain. this got me up and take something. as i not usually take pain killers, the smallest ammount helps and last night, that was all i needed to go back to sleep.
gladly i had an easy day, time to just be still, to read and not run from one place to an other. a short morning run, into the city to get my favorite dinkle cereal from "bare ware". and community dinner was fixed parallel to lunch. that's what freed me up this afternoon. the vegetable lasagne is in the oven and baking on it's own. a salad is quickly being tossed together and the kids will set the dinner table for 12 people.

spring green

 i got taken by surprise at this sight. it's in the middle of the city and this bouquet of tulips was just sweeping me off my feet. i had to stop and enjoy it. just an other look and a moment of still. so much color, so much spring feeling. a good start into the coming weeks.

and then over the weekend i went on a walk with the girls. it was not a sunny day, but not raining yet. and so we really enjoyed the fresh air. the freshness of those little spring flowers got us going, searching the corners and sheltered places those early flowers have chosen to spring up.
i take it with me into this started week, it is a full week, with lots of little things to think of. with the house concert coming up this friday "two4joy"!
