My soul finds peace in nature. Lucky for me I live in the woods. One could easily find me on my covered porch or back deck writing, reading, drawing, meditating or doing yoga.
Just last night Flyboy and I enjoyed a quiet dinner on the deck minus the youngest. Nothing is hotter than a sexy man cooking for you!
We have simple feeding stations around our yard to attract a variety of wildlife. It is a joy watching them and several have made it into my books. During our dinner, a male hummingbird visited a feeder a few feet away!

Needless to say, getting back into the routine has been surprisingly easy. Taking time for yourself, a little bit of self love you could say, is important.
Today was Day 2 and I did 35 min yoga followed with a 5 minute meditation.
I'm feeling good! Watch out world!

A beautiful morning in my neck of the woods. I made an aromatic breakfast that would lure my teen son out of bed.
2 Slices of bacon
1 Tbsp heavy cream
Handful of baby spinach
2 slices Smoked Cheddar cheese
Preheat oven at 350.
I warm my cast iron skillet while I slice the bacon into little strips. While bacon is browning, beat eggs and cream. Feel free to add salt, pepper, a dash of ground mustard seed.
Remove bacon from skillet and add egg. Lay baby spianch on rgg, then add bacon. Tear the cheese and lay ontop.
Don't stir but watch for edge to begin to cook. Remo e from burner and place in preheated oven. Bake until egg is done. (5-10 minutes).
Remove from oven and let stand for a minute or two before cutting into pie slices.
It disappears fast.

After freezing at a the Youngest's high school baseball game, I woke this morning with a sore throat. Oh, yay. I certainly can't get sick this close to my neck surgery!
After doing my morning yoga with the House Tiger, I searched for some Throat Coat tea. Found two varieties in the drawer Borh feature licorice root and slippery elm as main ingredients. Add a bit of cinnamon and I'm ready for a flavorful throat treatment.
I couldn't choose one so I selected a bag from each. After all, what would it hurt?
Oh, goody...two tea tag messages!
The House Tiger says it's nap time.

Of course it happens. My pup, Reyka wakes me eatly on my day off. Why can't I ever sleep in?
Ugh! Get up, feed critters, find the positve and start the day on the right foot.
> I shared a rare moment chatting with teen son before he left for school. Normal mornings consist of me speaking words while he communicates in grunts.
> Grabbed a cup of coffee and wished it were warmer and Flyboy was home. However. a lovely dawn it was. Look at all the GREEN!
> Oh, my! The wild Daylilies are pushing through the leaves! A little sign of summer. Yay!

Here it is, April, and it snowed a couple days ago. However, warm temperatures are on the way.
Spring is pushing forward. Reyka is puzzled by the frog calls and doesn't understand why her mom oohs and ahhs over all the tiny flowers.
What signs of Spring do you see?

Some days are filled with joy and peace, others are not. Perhaps its how we view it.
I began my yoga in the dark and by the time I finished, light filtered through the woods.
At first I saw the grey trees and prepared for a gloomy day. Then I noticed the lovely hues of peach and rose. The warmth filled my soul.
It will be a good day.
Find the joy. Find the peace.
