~ Itchy hands and a restless mind~

do not make for a happy girl.

I am caught between Spring Fever and some kind of limbo.

My hands want to knit and finish my quilt, and make a new doll. Yet I am drawn to the outdoors to garden, to  weed the garden, plant the garden, and to be in the garden. My mind however, is cluttered. I am itching to do so many things, but I am so distracted by… distractions. I can’t seem to find the balance. My work is icky right now, so I am spending too much time with worry and dread. Oh me, what is a girl to do?? Maybe I should just bake some bread??

I will find a balance, I will find peace.

~Reflections of Spring~

Image

I don’t know where March has gone.  Where did you go March? It must have been the warm rays of sun that brought on the onslaught of  fast and furious green growth.  I have been outside enjoying the warmth and light. I have sown seeds that make me very hopeful for a meager reward (if I am lucky.)

Spring has come fast and hard this year. The world has many problems and  I feel a heaviness that is hard to turn away from. For this short period of beauty (called Spring.)  I turn my face to the sun and I pray for peace. Peace for all who suffer and an end to the sadness that is all around so many. Spring brings renewal and each day moves us closer to the sun, and perhaps closer to the realization that we all one.
