Ready to Spring


Happy Friday! I had planned to write a different (i.e. better) post for today, but after switching to Daylight Savings Time last weekend during a snowstorm that dropped 30" at my house, I haven't had the most productive or inspiring week.

Tomorrow, however, marks the spring/vernal equinox in the northern hemisphere, which is welcome news. Every year, spring brings the promise of renewal, but perhaps no year more than this one. Longer days, warmer temperatures, and increased vaccination will hopefully spread a little optimism after a long and bleak Covid winter. 

With not quite two weeks left in March, there's time to wrap up the first quarter of 2021 and plan for the second. Though I'm still trying to factor discipline into my daily life, I can feel some of my new year enthusiasm waning, so it's a good time for a bit of a reboot.

  1. Ugh, a quarter of the way through the year! I hadn't even registered that until you said it. Bummer. Now I really need to pull my finger out and try and get some things done (and we're heading into winter which is when I always struggle to do things *sigh*)

    1. I know what you mean about winter. It's so much harder to get energized with less sunlight. I think we're all supposed to just hibernate, which is pretty much what I've spent the last few months doing!
