02 The Rain, the Park and Other Things

It’s Earth Day, and like a cute little curtsy greeting in this very important Earth Day, I was awakened to pretty little blooms from my Flowering Quince bush! It’s a blushing color, a soft and delicate shade of coral! I just love this little bush! It’s right off my patio, so I can sit next to and enjoy during it’s way too short bloom time! I like to put flowering bushes where I can easily enjoy them!

And while you are enjoying gazing at this beautiful bloom, I hope you take a moment to hear the happy little song that I have included. I do LOVE that song!

Enjoy the rest of this special day and enjoy the wonders that our Earth brings to us each and every day!

As you all know by now, I feel nature is rejuvenating! A walk along the pond or sitting and watching the birds or enjoying all the blooms that spring presents to us….how could anyone feel anything but balanced!

I also enjoy what this good Earth brings to us naturally in the form of rocks and gemstones! I have always loved rocks. I love searching for the prettiest colors, shapes and a stone with a story….one with real natural character! I think I love collecting rocks and gemstones as much as making jewelry with them. Take a look at my little shop to see some of the lovely NATURAL organic jewelry and gifts

Until next time….

Another Beautiful Morning!

13 A Beautiful Morning Click to download the music and enjoy!

It’s just another beautiful day today! As I lay in bed this morning, I told myself I would regret if I did not rise up and walk around outside with Savanah and check out the new blooms! That’s one thing so sweet about Savannah, she’s always ready and willing to take a walk with me! So finally, we lifted our bodies up, eyes still heavy and sleepy, and unfortunately had to search for the glasses to see how late I overslept. Hmm, not too bad, after all, it is a Sunday….and we should kick back once in awhile!

We need days like these! Days like these miraculously lift the spirit and spring clean the dreary feelings left inside!  And that’s exactly what this short little jaunt in the yard did! It made me happy!

I was hopeful my Flowering Quince would have bloomed this morning, but it is still in bud form. The lilac blooms are still budding, along with the Crab Apple Trees and the other perennials and flowering trees around! But, it’s still glorious out there with the little color that is available to enjoy! The pond is really sparkly this morning and the sun so bright on my sleepy eyes it was a bit blinding! But it felt good to soak up the sun!

So, little flowers and little buds today, that’s what I’m sharing with you…Pink Bleeding Hearts, The Flowering Quince Buds, White Bleeding Hearts, and yes, still enjoying the Magnolia buds and flowers!

I need to sit on the porch with a morning cup of coffee and feel the cool wind and the warm bright sun and enjoy the morning! I already feel outdoorsy :o) as I have my mocassins on…original Minnetonka ones I had to get on our last camping trip to Copper Harbor, ohhh how I love that place!  So, lets all get off the computer RIGHT NOW and go outside and enjoy the simple pleasures we are blessed with….before you know it the WONDERFUL spring blooms and the chilly sunny mornings will be gone and we will be welcoming in another season!

And later, when the casual coffee time outside is over, and you’re browsing the web….then it’s time to check out my Etsy shop. It’s so pretty, so many nice things, and, I’ve been very inspired lately and have added many items to my shop! I have a lot more to add…but, I have to enjoy the morning right now!

Love and Peace,

Linda

My New Shoes!

06 New Shoes Click to enjoy the music, it should download for you!

In my yoga studies,  we learned about keeping our Chakras in Harmony. There is a balanced person, and the polarities – opposite or contradictory tendencies. Being a right side of the brain kind of person, I have to make a conscious effort to not fall on the extreme side! I must admit, somedays it is a struggle. It actually started last night and continued on into the day today. Me and the girls tried to work through it with suggested music my daughter said I should listen to! LOL Nuf said!

So anyway, like a sign from heaven, I came home to some very good things! First, my magnolia tree was in bloom, AND my brand new shoes were waiting on my doorstep! I couldn’t believe the magnolia blooms are just perfect and this year the weather did not interfere with their blooms in any way! They are miraculously beautiful! AND, I must say, not since my high school 6 inch black platform shoes and my rainbow suede wedge shoes with the white daisy on it, have I loved a pair of shoes this much! They are perfect and bring me back to simpler times. Of course, that is a major blog all on it’s own, the 70’s, I’ll get to it someday!

So, I thought I would share my shoes with you with the most perfect song AND a photo of my perfect magnolia bloom!

So, until next time!

Love and Peace,

Linda

A Brand New Day!

05-brand-new-day(click to hear the music, it will download and you can enjoy listening to while you read this post!) It’s early in the morning and still very quiet in the house! Not too early as I like to take my days off of work a little slow. Rise Naturally! This morning, I was awakened by the raindrops –  softly tapping on the roof and windows. The light was soft and hazy, peeking thru my bedroom window. And, as usual I lay and think of the things I would like to do today. The thoughts roll over and are revised in my mind. OK, so now I’m up with a cup of coffee and a notebook. I want to enjoy the soft light so, I decided the living room, on my sofa with my favorite pillow is where I shall write this morning!

It’s the day before Easter. Thoughts of years earlier and Easter baskets and colored eggs and blooming flowers….all collage in my mind. In Illinois, one never knows if the flowers will be in attendance for Easter or the snow will still be on the ground. I’m happy to say, the weather was glorious this week, so flowers it is! It felt perfect driving with the windows down, the music on, and the sun shining. Spring has SPRUNG! So along with the beautiful weather comes the rich rewards this good earth brings to us! FLOWERS! Not too many blooming, but enough to instill in me hope for a brighter tomorrow! Spring does that to me. Things always seem more cheerful when the flowers are in bloom. Something new happens miraculously all on it’s own, each and everyday! Perennial flowers, flowering bushes and trees are my favorite. Just when you thought you couldn’t take another moment more of winter, a little tiny bit of color overnight pops up to show the world it’s beauty! The daffodils, how I love them….dressed up like little Easter bonnets. Crocus, purple ones are my favorite and the magnolias-all that blooming commotion is going on right now. My neighbors white star mognolias are the first magnolias that I see blooming so far! My Crabapple trees and Rhododendrums are still a bit sleepy, not yet ready to show their colors. As, I walked around my home yesterday, absorbing and observing-my calculation, a week of warm weather and the blooming will begin! I already see the bleeding hearts up about 4 inches, the poppies have a nice crown of leaves already bursting, and the Clematis is getting anxious too!

Well even with the haze and rain, I hear the birds anxious to begin their day – perhaps I should too! I feel like the days go waayyyy tooo fast! Perhaps age does that to me, or perhaps just wanted to hold onto early spring and it’s magic.

Everyone have a wonderful holiday! Enjoy the early blooms and look forward to more flowers ahead!

Love and Peace,
Linda
