Bringing a little bit of spring inside

I know it has been ages since I've updated this blog. Okay, it's been 2 months and three-ish weeks to be precise.

I just got past my most busy time at my job. I'm not even kidding. I lived at my office the last two weeks pretty much. I went home to sleep (sometimes 6 hours or less) and shower.

But, last Sunday was a beautiful day. And having finished up at my office after 1 am on Saturday night, I was delighted to have a whole day of leisure to waste away. But it was so pretty outside. So, I did will myself to shower and dress and head outside for about an hour and a half.

I swept off the patio and contemplated if it was too early to get our fire pit out and make a fire in it Sunday night. It probably was. It was nice and sunny, but the wind was a little chilly. I also cleaned leaves out of my flower bed and picked sticks up out of the yard that had blown out of the trees when we had a hellacious storm a couple weeks ago.

And I picked some flowers. And cut some frosythia. And made this.

It's just so cheerful. And it kinda has perked me up every morning since Sunday that I've stumbled into the dining room half awake at about 7:09 a.m. to get some caffeine, er water, and eat breakfast. I'm not a morning person, so every little bit helps.
