All in all it’s been a wonderful Wednesday. Not because I followed up my (dreaded) visit to the dentist (he of ‘beer in the waitingroom’ fame – see my Fangs for the Memory post) with a (free) facial from Origins. Though ‘free’ isn’t probably the right word…the hour one session (which included facial massage, peeling, scrub, masque, tonic, serum, lotion, ‘Peace of Mind’ massage, light makeup etc, etc) was ‘free’ if you bought a couple of products. But I digress! 🙂
No, it’s because I caught a tiny glimpse of something this afternoon. We came back from school, ladened with backpacks, a sledge, ‘things’ DD7 has created etc and I decided to do an extra bit of shovelling. I’d shovelled and swept snow this morning at 7.30 am before we left for school, but I decided to do a little bit more. Just for the record, sweeping snow is a great workout. I wasn’t wearing my heart rate monitor today (used it while doing ‘snow’ intervals last year) but I could feel that I was quickly up to max pulse. Curling must be a great cardio sport. But I digress again! 😉
Anyways…I was sweeping the snow and I suddenly heard a little dickie bird. And I realised that it was 4.15pm and it was still light. Gadzooks! Spring is on the way!
So I filled up the bird feeder to the brim and enjoyed a couple of minutes of just looking around the garden. (Gosh, I’m getting terribly sentimental in my old age, aren’t I?!) Spring is my absolute favourite season (and my seasonal colours…) so this afternoon I am just ‘full of the joys’.
Hope you, too, are having a wonderful Wednesday! 🙂
