What Day Is It Anyway – 03/17/2020

Linda Hill had a great idea of strengthening and supporting each of our blogging counterparts by writing about our days during this crazy time. I thought I would jump on board because, well the last few days – whew. I was in the pits of despair. I will not regurgitate that all here, because I am realigning and moving forward.

Today is Saint Patrick’s day. I never really celebrated this day much. I am not wearing green nor am I planning to drink green beer today. I once had a pin I liked to wear that said: “Legalize Blarney“. Funny the ‘stuff’ we buy during our lifetime.

We have had some challenges with our house buying foray. It has been a lot. We are unsure at this moment if we will follow through. Regardless, I am okay with whatever decision we make. A small problem in today’s world.

Have you ever found a four-leaf clover? I am not good at it, but our daughter has an uncanny knack for finding them. I think maybe I have found one or two of them in my lifetime. I am not sure about luck, though. I think we open ourselves to find what we need.

Spring is showing itself in the mountains. My redbud trees are finally blooming. We are seeing the Eastern Towhee eating on the ground underneath the feeder. They are shy visitors but we see them frequently during the spring and summer months. Just 30 days and I will be putting the hummingbird feeders out. We have SO much lettuce in our garden – it survived so well during these winter months. Maybe I will make a batch of Lidia Bastianich’s lettuce soup if I can find the recipe again.

Today I made a promise to myself to create something. Not sure what that will be, but whatever it is, I will post it here when complete.

Linda, thank you for the opportunity to reframe my thinking. Let’s all start moving some positive energy around.

  1. We do need to stay connected and support each other through this crazy, difficult time. I was so anxious and depressed yesterday, but what can you do, right?! Pray it away. We are not in control, so what’s worrying about it gonna do but cause wrinkles. I’ve decided to try and act like everything is normal until I just can’t anymore. Spending lots of time with family too.

      1. I agree. We are all in similar boats. Some are 8n punctured life rafts, some in speed boats and some just floating on a pontoon boat. Let’s all simply help each other where we can.

  2. I read this idea over on Linda’s blog and have to admit that it’s exactly what I’ve been pondering of late. I start conversations on my blog, always have, but now it seems more important to do this and make the effort to connect with each other. Let’s see where it goes!

  3. I have never celebrated this day, as I have no Irish connections at all. And I have never even looked ofr a4-leaf clover. 🙂
    Sorry to hear about the house issues. Any moving is always so stressful.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  4. I am encouraged by all strategies that people are using to get through these very difficult times. I have been walking and looking for any signs of spring. Crocus have been popping up. The rest should be along in a bit.
