It’s Spring!…finally

It’s the first day of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere.


To celebrate, I would like to share 10 random things that are jazzing me today:

  • for the next 3 months, the sun  shines longer, brighter, warmer
  • in all likelihood, the need to wear three or more layers of wool on a daily basis just to stay comfortable has passed
  • the birds are bursting forth with their impassioned love songs
  • vegetables and fruits grown closer to home, tasting more like vegetables and fruit-less like cardboard–are in the stores
  • the tulips are shyly but surely popping up on the south side of the house
  • our bed linens are flapping in the breeze
  • I have donned my Spring coat and jacket and let go of the heavy, furry versions
  • colorful skirts and dresses have come out to play
  • turquoise eyeliner just feels right
  • the peacock pumps are ready to strut their stuff!

How about you–do share what jazzes you about this first day of Spring!

I am a fabric artist and a professional minister in the Catholic Church. I am married for 40+ years to a most fabulous man. We have 4 adult children, 2 daughter-in-laws ( who we also consider to our children!) and 4 grandbabies. I love to weave, paint silk, sew and design garments for myself; bead, read, write and color. I am also a spiritual Companion/Director and have a special place in my soul for women who are healing and in need of healing from trauma and abuse. I love coffee, quiet reflective prayer time at my kitchen table and long walks to breathe in the Holy Spirit. I would like to learn how to spin yarn and will someday create a spun, hand dyed/painted, beaded, woven fabulous garment of peace!
