April . . . was pretty much a blur. There was winter and there was spring. There was crazy-busy and there was some relaxing. But mostly . . . blur.
Here's what's happening for me . . . Right Now.
Watching . . . Prince tribute after Prince tribute. Prince footage. I sort of can't look away. Here is my favorite (so far).
Knitting . . . Nearly finished with my toddler sweater -- and . . . just in time. Because the recipient is growing fast! Now, I think this one is up next (even though I swore I'd never knit with linen again).
Listening to . . . Sirius radio. That channel that is just like listening to the car radio back in 1976? Yep. That one. (Pablo Cruise, anyone???)
Drinking . . . Beer on the patio. (And, my. That feels good!)
Itching to . . . Plant my herb garden. (But not quite yet. I need to be patient for a couple more weeks.)
Humming . . . Poetry Man by Phoebe Snow. I heard this one the other day - for the first time in probably 30 years or so - and now? Can't get it out of my head! (See Sirius radio; above.)
Needing to . . . Put away my winter clothes. Really. I'm sure I won't wear them anymore. (Even if the weather turns winter-y again.) (Once I put on the flip-flops, it's All Over.)
Dreading . . . Not being able to hear for a couple of weeks. (Because my hearing aids went haywire yesterday and need repair.)
Celebrating . . . An 80th birthday just around the corner!
Delighted by . . . Grape hyacinths. I think I planted about 100 bulbs last fall. (And I have no regrets!)
Looking forward to. . . Lilacs! I planted a lilac bush of my own last year -- and it's full of buds. (And, of course, there is my neighbor's lilac. Which happens to drape over my side of the fence in a most accessible way . . . )
Thinking about . . . Gratitude. And feeling the need to acknowledge it in a more intentional way. Every day.
Planning . . . My garden. Home improvements. Trips up north. My workload. How to make everything work.
How about YOU? What's happening for you . . . right now?
