…Only 34 hours left to go – till life gets better –
Nothing big, or earth shattering – I simply quit smoking yesterday morning, and the first 72 hours, for a nic-addict, such as myself, feels rather like hades on earth – without the heat – and ugly horned fellas (unless, of course, I look in the mirror….)
And this morning, a tad before the first 24 hours were up… I awoke to the dark, moist earth – kissed by heavy fog/frost – but a warm spring sun that left the birds singing to the heavens, and the ‘fresh as a daisy’ smell over my lil’ place –
Why I was surprised at how fast things happened, do not ask me – Spring surprises me every year, even though I should know better –
On Monday, I was gifted a belated Easter Gift – the first hint that I’d better be getting my sprouting potatoes from last month/last year in the ground AND be checking on weeding activities –
This a.m., I did some early weeding, and wondered, just why, none of the annual Welsh Onions, Jerusalem Artichokes or Wild Lettuces had shown up yet, while so many other things are waking up:
And of course, I really ought to get my ‘winter blankies’ pulled off beds, but there’s plenty of time, and who knows, for sure, how many blizzards are left in the season?
If the spring storms and frosts aren’t too heavy/cold, maybe I’ll have a tree full of purple, here, soon:
Wouldn’t ya know? The wild roses and golden currants planted last spring, around this time, are waking up, big time, already:
I would have taken a picture of day lilies and tulips – the native grasses starting to green up and blessing the land of beige and gray, I’ve looked at for oh-so-long – but when I went out to take pictures, this afternoon, to share with you the beauty of this morning’s ‘get rid of angst, by touching the earth…” – well – I had to hurry –
For don’t ya know – the it was cold and windy as the next snow storm rolled in –
Friday will truly be a big TGIF, this week – for the physiological and brain chemistry changes in the first 72 hours after a nic-addict quits feeding their habit is one, great, big roller-coaster ride – and no matter how good it is for me, ultimately, the first 72 makes me wonder who wants to live that long, anyways?!?
Thank goodness for Starburst flavored Jelly Beans – for you know, the dark ones are grape flavored – not black licorice –
Yes… I’m counting my many blessings…
Happy Hump-Day Wednesday! 🙂
