Happy New Year to you all!
Look who I found singing loudly in the garden this morning:
And some signs of new growth emerging from the frozen earth:
I am hoping this year to remember to focus on taking joy from the moment and day I am in, rather than just rushing around from one thing to the next. It's so easy to think about the list of tasks I have lined up ahead of me instead of being able to relax for ten minutes to have a coffee, think creative thoughts, or have a wander up the garden in the sunshine and appreciate the flowers.
And I'm definitely going to make the most of stroking my cat while he's still around - he's even more sleepy than ever so needs plenty of time being cuddled on a lap!
I hope 2010 brings much contentment and fulfilment to all of you.
