. . . . . . .Days and Nights

I love the spring! The whole world is tranforming before my eyes each day, awakening as the sun and rain call forth the flowers, grasses, plants and trees to start growing again. It is joyous to actually watch the little buds on the trees and bushes as they get ready to bloom. I love it!

The days this week have been wonderful! The air is warming enough to spend more time outside and it makes me feel so ALIVE to be outside! Yesterday I played outside all morning with my little boys. We played soccer with the neighborhood 2 and 3 year olds (which was quite funny) then they rode bike and big wheels around the culdesac. Simply glorious.

The only hard part for me is the wind, which negatively affects my eye and my vision. I am sporting my special moisture chamber sunglasses all the time, but sometimes even they are not enough. But, even that cannot stop me from enjoying this beautiful season!

My nights are not quite as good. I am not a great "sleeper" and even though my body desperately needs rest, recovery and recuperation time, I often don't rest as well as I'd like. the last 2 nights have been really hard, but so far I am still functioning (and better than I would have expected!).

So, the way I see it, the only way to overcome a less-than-perfect night's sleep is to spend the day in the sunshine! See you outside!
