Spring is for shaking things up, clearing out the clutter and starting fresh! Nothing makes me happier than a splash of color after all of the drab weather we've been having. If the flowers aren't coming up fast enough, I buy a new shade of lipstick that will go with my pj's or sweats while I work Okay, it's still cold and I'm trying to convince myself not to be grumpy. Lipstick helps, even when I have to wash it off my coffee cup.
I may even get crazy and book another massage this month. What, you thought I was buying nail polish to go with the lipstick? I'm hell on polish. I can't even keep it on my toes long enough for my husband to notice. No, I'm going for the massage.
Nothing like a relaxed attitude to spark new ideas. It might even help me decide on what color to paint my office. The lavender from a couple of years ago has started to look a little gray. I'm thinking something along the lines of vanilla cream with just enough yellow to brighten things up. Maybe I should get new curtains.
Of course, it's time to clean out some of the clutter that's accumulated over the course of my last writing project but that too is a signal that new beginnings are just around the corner. Okay, that part was about convincing myself that I really don't mind cleaning.
I'd love to plant something but I'm afraid that I'm getting ahead of myself. Maybe I'll just buy a photograph of some sunflowers and hang it in the office until the real ones bloom. Knowing me, that should be around the time the office is painted and the new curtains are hung. I know everyone is looking forward to warmer weather and sunnier days. What's on your spring agenda?
Until next month,
