Who can believe that this is the last Tuesday in March? The month has flown by and it is time to check in with my One Little Word. This year my word is Nourish. And, it continues to be a good word for me. I am nourishing my body and my soul these days by:
Cooking. Well, I always cook, but I seem to be doing more of it (more time at home). Mostly healthy things, though a few pleasures thrown in there as well (I'm looking at you banana bread with blueberries and cookies). Lunches continue to be mostly salads (with our lettuce from the garden!!) or raw veggies and hummis or cheese. Some dinners are still vegan or vegetarian (though we do still love our meat).
Moving. I continue to do a workout routine every single day! Yay me!! LOL. But I'm finding it does make a difference and especially these recent damp, grey and/or just plain rainy days that I don't get out to walk. Plus, after sitting at my desk (home office), it is nice to get up and move to another area of the house and DO something.
Archery. This goes witih moving, above, but really a separate thing all on its own. It is SO much fun! I'm not very good at it, but I enjoy it immensely. I'm thankful we are able to shoot right in our back yard (always making sure Tyg is inside first).
Seeing the Beauty Around Me. I'm wandering outside to pick flowers almost daily. And I'm loving all the birds that are (still) coming to our feeders, Steve the Beav traipsing through the back yard, etc. I picked these yesterday:
Thankful that Fletch is keeping busy with various projects. The latest is grafting! Our Weeping Cherry which was always gorgeous seemed to mysteriously die last year. Fletch cut away a lot of it, but yesterday when he dropped off cookies and a burning bush at Colin's, he took some weeping cherry whips from Colin's trees and is grafting them onto our tree. Not sure it will work, but it sure is nice to see some blooms on that tree!
Saying a prayer of luck for it. And, we've had so much rain that our apple tree is now covered in lichen!
We are making a quick run to the grocery store today (we never did go last Friday) to pick up mostly wine and fresh produce. Unlike the liquor stores (which sadly remain closed, though I consider them a necessity), the grocery stores limit how many bottles you can buy at one time. Meaning, you cannot just go in and buy a case. You would think in these times of necessary STAY AT HOME, they would change their rules.....
It's another grey and dismal day here, so I will do my workout before we head to the store. Be well and stay healthy!
BTW, I had an email yesterday that someone on the first floor of my office building tested positive for Covid-19. My company is on the 2nd floor. But still... That person had not been in the building for a week. Then I received another e-mail from the property management company confirming that the entire building had been thoroughly cleaned. What? Aren't they doing that on a regular basis? Anyway, no plans for me to go into the office (I had thought of it late last week to print some things, but that can wait). Also, no date yet for my office to re-open.
