I can’t believe it! Spring is finally here but it certainly doesn’t feel like it. Even though we haven’t had a snowy or harsh winter we hardy New Englanders always love when winter is over. THINK SPRING!
We can get out more (only in our yards for now) and enjoy the sunshine and warmer temperatures (whenever they arrive) and the glorious new growth on trees, grass and introduction of beautiful blossoms.
Spring is my second favorite time of the year. Fall is still my favorite.
Spring is a time for the Earth to reawaken its plants, flowers and insects. As soon as the weather warms up into the high 60’s and low 70’s you can see a mass of small insects flying around happy to be reborn.
Humans feel alive again too when we cast away the heavy clothes and take out the lightweight ones and look forward to wearing the flip flops again!
As you can see I wrote some of the post before the COVID-19 virus attacked the world. Now things are not looking so sunny for the spring and upcoming summer months. All we can do is pray that this virus will stop spreading if people pay attention to the CDC and their country’s administration of what they must do to stop it from harming any more people.
What surprised me the other day on the news were all the young college kids out on spring break having a grand old time partying all over Florida beaches. I couldn’t believe my eyes! What are they thinking? Evidently not thinking at all.
It’s a funny (not haha but strange) thing when you are young you feel invincible, that nothing can touch you. How soon we all learn that this is not so as we grow older and wiser.
At my age which is well over a teenager, I have learned early and often that I am not invincible from anything. I can get sick. When I was young I could bounce back more quickly and reset myself like new. But now, ha, not so. It takes a whole lot longer to get recharged. The battery does not kick back on, is on a slow drain and needs a starter to get going again. Sigh!
Here’s a note to those young party goers – PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE STAY SAFE AND AWAY FROM LARGE CROWDS. STAY HOME, FACE TIME OR SKYPE WITH FRIENDS, HAVE A DRINK TOGETHER THAT WAY. DO THIS NOT JUST FOR YOURSELVES BUT FOR THOSE YOU LOVE WHO YOU COULD INFECT FROM YOUR GATHERINGS WHEN YOU RETURN HOME.
The longer we all stay away from one another the quicker this virus will die down and stop curving upward on the scale. We need to get better at listening to what our doctors tells us to do. I spoke with my doctor today by phone instead of going in for a yearly physical. I am recuperating from a cold but nothing serious he said. I am almost feeling like myself again and itching to get back to my normal routine of cleaning my house. I know I must be crazy, huh? I do love to have a clean house. Can’t help that. It was ingrained in me by my mother. Sigh!
Until that time I am going to keep working on my newest book and hopefully have it ready before summer is here. My husband is working on Book 2 of Drystan the Dragon and Friends. It is an adorable book! I know children will love it as much as they love Book 1. Watch for these books coming this summer!
Stay safe and well everyone! My thoughts and prayers are going out to you. Love to all! We will make it through this! Stay strong and think positively!
Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!
