Going to Florida was a good thing. The most important was the getting away part and going to the Sunshine. The second most important, in hindsight? The smell and the taste of Florida. The grass smelled good. The trees smelled good. The dirt, I could smell the dirt. The smells created a memory for me. I remember what it’s like to be in the warmth, the sun and Summer.
The Ocean smelled amazing too. I actually went swimming. The water tasted good too. Salty and kind of chilly. Again, it created a memory of Sun, Summer and warm. I’m holding on to it for dear life. Spring is on the way.
It’s supposed to snow again on Wednesday. I’m ok with it. It will cover up the piles of snirt that are everywhere. (Snirt = snow + dirt) Hopefully it will all melt soon and maybe we’ll see some snowdrops or maybe even a daffodil bud poking up from the lawn.

Or as I like to call it “Getting the hell away from the snow and cold”
I was on safari searching sunshine, warmth and a little bit of salt water. All for my soul. It’s been a heavy winter. And I’m trying to keep my chin up but….it’s been tough. This past weekend’s trip to Orlando and Cocoa Beach helped. The Sunshine brought my spirits back in line. The little bit of sunburn I got the 2nd day helped too. The sand in between my toes, the solo walk on the beach helped too. Hanging with DD and our dear beach friends did wonders. It really, really did.

More ideas. IDEAS!
All this is swimming in my brain right now. I have post it notes stuck to everything. Writing weird things down like a madwoman. Drawing desk mandalas like a madwoman too. And more ideas. And more pages ripped out for my Vision Board. Hopefully they’re good ideas. Hopefully I can find them.
Now, where are my post its and pen ?

So maybe I embrace the weather this year. The piles of snow, snirt and ice that encroach the driveway. The pile of snow at the road. Not pretty anymore. Coated with fresh snow, yes, it’s pretty. I can totally get down with Mother Nature making amazing beautiful things though.
How about some really cool snow, ice, glacier & iceberg images? These. I can totally get behind these.

It’s kinda funny that I’m currently obsessed with looking at pictures of Tiny Houses.
The pack rat. The one with a million hobbies and tons of things. And tons of books.
I think a Tiny House would work for me for travel….a tiny house on a trailer. Or for a retreat space. I could not live in a Tiny House for any extended period of time.
Every time I look at an interior pic of said Tiny House, I ask myself, “But where do I put all my shit?”
So, the Southeast and Eastern Seaboard is getting housed by another storm. Said storm is working it’s way to the Northeast too. And it’s sunny here in Ohio. There’s still a ton of snow here but it’s really sunny. I ate my lunch yesterday in my car with the window open and the sun shining directly on my face.
Amazing! It felt good at the time and I’m still
a little elated even a day later. It’s sunny again today. I’m figuring how I can slip outside for a few more minutes of sunny bliss.
