Outside this weekend

Good morning, blog friends.
Just popping in this morning with a few photos from the weekend. Doug started digging in our backyard space and I planted flower seeds over a week ago, and since then I've been paying close attention to where the light falls, planning where to plant this, that, and the other...


The light has definitely shifted and I can feel spring coming around the bend. Our Arizona weather was gorgeous this weekend.


The best backyard news of all is that my sunflower seeds are sprouting! I have been checking the ground daily for shoots since I planted a little over a week ago. I could barely contain myself yesterday afternoon when I spotted this little fella:




Maybe not a big deal in the eyes of some onlookers, but huge for me. This little sprout symbolizes so much for me! Growing sunflowers in the dirt of our new house makes this place feel even more like home - literally putting down roots. I'm so excited to see this progress!

There's a busy week brewing and I'm working on keeping my attitude in check. Along with the two yoga classes I already teach, I volunteered to sub for a couple of other classes this week too, making my work schedule kind of interesting. And there's a 3-day weekend on the horizon with all kinds of fun planned, so I'm setting my sights on that...

It's easy to float if you stay light-hearted.
Have a great week, sweet friends.

It must be so nice and encouraging to see things taking shape. Will look forward to seeing that first sunflower in bloom and I wonder if those oranges - or their skins - will turn out to be more palatable than the blood oranges at the last place! Really pleased to see the friendship quilt out again - I was wondering whether you still planned to finish it. Can't wait to see it done!

A very encouraging sign for sure. Is that tails of a wind sock in the sunlight? Makes me think spring breezes. Happy week & how lucky are those in the sub-yoga classes going to be to have you take them through the movements & positions. I sun salute you.

How glorious to have that blue sky and sun, and the promise of new life pushing up all around you. Trying hard not to be envious ( and failing!) in our cold, grey rain. I live your sentence about floating and being light hearted - I'm tucking that one away :).

I am very impressed that the sunflower has sprouted :) It's interesting the things that make our houses into homes.
