I had a restless night of sleep which had me awake at 6:30 am. I am not sure why I did not sleep well, but some nights are just not as good as others. It could be because I am back doing my daily walks and these hills are hard on my knees. I have been too sedentary with the cold and rainy days of late.
After making my coffee, I eased onto the back deck and witnessed a most glorious sunrise. The last few days have been the same. Bright pinks and orange lighting up the sky. Yesterday reached into the 70° mark which gives me reassurance that spring is on the way.
Yesterday when we went for our afternoon walk, I noticed the daffodils were up and blooming along the roadway. I love the first hints that spring is approaching. It will not be long before the redbud trees and the dogwoods come to life. I cannot imagine living in really cold environments again — winter is too harsh and lasts too long.
Today we are meeting with our realtor while our architect is off getting bids from contractors. No matter the direction we move, big changes are coming. Changes I am embracing even knowing they will both be a lot of work. Leaving my current environment will not be an easy choice. I love this area in the spring, but it is limiting in so many other ways.
I hope this is a glorious Tuesday for you as well!
There’s a difference between wanting to stay and being too afraid to let go.
