Life got busy the last few days. And, while I’ve taken time to slow down a bit each day, I haven’t taken time to share on here. Last week I managed to workout twice. I’m doing PiYo right now. The instructor calls it active yoga, I think of it more as pilates, but who cares?
Friday night into Saturday morning it snowed. Granted, it wasn’t the crazy snow they forecasted, but it snowed. Then it turned to rain and rained all day long. This morning when I woke it, there was snow. It is snowing again. According to my weather last night, we were not supposed to get snow, but we did and now they are saying snow until noon.
The snow more blowing than sticking, but hey it looks pretty.
I feel like this photo doesn’t do it justice, but it works for my daily activity from Present not Perfect.
Give yourself time today to stare out the closest window at something beautiful. Imagine that your brain is getting off a highway to go on a more scenic side road.
One of the things I love about my house and where we live is the back of my property is woods. When I look out most of my back windows I look into nature. I see trees, blue sky, birds. We have chipmunks, squirrels, groundhogs, rabbits and deer.
I love being able to look out and not see cars, asphalt and day to day clutter of life.
I always feel that being able to see nature. The parts of the world that are not controlled by man, is one of the best ways to relax and appreciate life. I have almost always lived on a lot with conservation land behind me. I have always enjoyed being outside. Going on hikes in the woods. Feeding the birds. Seeing the wild animals. This is beauty to me.
So this morning I stood there and watched the woodpeckers fly to the suet feeder. I watched cardinals, blue jays and wrens fly to eat sunflower seeds. I watched the snow blow and swirl. I see the trees sway in the breezes.
