What puts a spring in my step? SPRING! I am a summer loving gal, so once the dreariness of winter's end is past, I'm am giddy when I see daffodils.
Then the trees bud and even though my allergies make me a little wacky, I'm happy. More sunlit hours, warmer temps, and the prospect of working in my meditation garden and OPEN MY POOL make me feel punch drunk. I can write sitting on my patio, or poolside. The hubs grills all summer so cooking isn't such a chore, I suck down cool drinks all day. Go biking, hiking, swimming. I couldn't get any happier. And being that happy, I'm more productive in everything.
Happy Spring, and come on Summer!
