This morning as I stood under our maple tree looking towards the blue skies I thought “I could get a lot done today if I stayed home from work.”
Mornings that I wake up and see blue skies, sunshine and feel the warmth in the air energize me. This morning before work I washed three loads of clothes and hung them out on the line. Spent an hour on my bible study homework and picked up a few things out of place.
If I were home today it would be a perfect day to throw open the windows and let the fresh air in and start washing windows. I know why in the old days women did their spring cleaning. It was not just because they needed to do it after the long winter, they felt capable of doing it. During the winter my energy level is much lower and I feel like I get so much less accomplished.
During this season I spend very little time indoors so I can savor the perfect weather. I love to be outside in the flower garden, down by the lake or just take a walk. I can’t help but notice the daily changes around me. During the winter everything seems to stay the same other than a little more snow than the day before.
As I was walking around the yard this morning I could hear activity in the air. The birds were singing, tractors in the distance, motorcycles on a nearby road and voices of others outside on this beautiful morning.
Today is a day that many things will be accomplished.
