Spring is almost here (well at least based on the calendar). And with this new season is a promise of warmer days, greener grass, and busy schedules. Spring is a hectic Almanac time as we are putting the finishing touches on the next edition (2014). We have to finalize all types of details to get the 2014 Farmers’ Almanac to press by early June. Personally it’s also busy season for me as it’s a time when my kids’ sports schedules pick up. Plus there’s Mother’s Day, lots of birthdays in my family, and my daughter’s confirmation. Yes, spring is filling up quickly.
So the challenge this spring —what am I going to do differently? How will I attack the every day and seasonal routines (don’t forget getting the outside ready for a nice summer) in a way that won’t have me dreading a season that’s just about to begin?
Kind of reminds me of those New Year’s resolutions some of us set 3 months ago —how are you doing with those? I wrote down 5 things I’d like to accomplish this year, and so far I have worked on a few, but have yet to really accomplish them.
Perhaps for this spring I will write down a few things that have to get done and some that I want to get done and see how I do. But I will also keep in mind that even if I don’t get everything off the list that it’s Ok too, as life is meant to be lived not just routinely scheduled.
What about you? Any special plans for the spring? Is it a busy time for you or not so much?
Whatever spring means to you, I hope the warmer days and greener grass give you a little extra spring in your step and help you achieve whatever your goals are for this new season.
