the roses are still beautiful on my window sill at work. and i found myself stopping today just to stare at them in the light. though my desk is far from perfect (or clean), i found a stride today and plowed through a ton of tasks by simply making a list and doing them one at a time. it was the old 'covey' method of do it, delegate it or toss it. don't knock the man, it works when you're determined.
as i left the office, i noticed the dogwood tree is full of buds - i can't wait for the blooms. and the moon was hanging there in the blue, blue sky. my heart skipped a beat at the beauty of just that moment and all was right with the world, even if it was just for a moment.
driving home was a bit easier today as i knew i got more accomplished than the day before - and i remembered to breathe. that's the trick you know, breathing.
beautiful photos !ReplyDelete
Really beautiful pictures. They make my heart smile. Our dogwood tree has blooms too! And yes ,Thank you for reminding us of what the trick is! :) cuz I forget to breath all of the time.ReplyDelete
Yes...breathing and knocking things off the ol' to do list. I actually did get a few things crossed off today too...boy that felt good!ReplyDelete
Ah...you even have lovely light at work! Gorgeous roses - and the dogwood tree just makes my heart skip a beat...I have one right outside my front window, but those buds are still locked up tight, with more snow forecast over the next few days.ReplyDelete
That's okay, though - I'll just breathe through it...
we were on the same track yesterday char and that makes me smile . something about that sky .ReplyDelete
breathing is great and I guess that spring is coming, ooh your lucky, in Canada we had a big snow storm!!!ReplyDelete
I'm so happy that you had a good day,.... and that you shared the dogwood and moon with us too! :)ReplyDelete
All was right with the world, just for a moment. Moment by moment, that's what matters. Perception, beauty, vision, seeing how right it is.ReplyDelete
breathing is good. and so is being lovely.ReplyDelete
there is definitely something about the blue skies these days. this morning I noticed it had the look of spring even though it was 25º outside.ReplyDelete
hope today is even better than yesterday, which was better than the day before.
I too cannot wait for theReplyDelete
dogwoods to come into bloom!
I've been paying homage to the fat buds on the magnolias. : ) Mr. Cardinal has been singing the spring song too. It's coming soon! And, as always, your photo...those breath-taking roses...is so beautiful!ReplyDelete
The roses bring a little bit of sunshine into your office. Your photography as always is beautiful.ReplyDelete
oh....breathing !! I think I can do that !ReplyDelete
and it's probably less offensive than swearing and stomping my feet :)
Breathing really is a good thing. Glad to hear you're feeling productive.ReplyDelete
i just realized i was holding my breath when i read your reminder to breathe.ReplyDelete
yes, it's a morning.
i'm going to rub my face on the screen and see if some of your productivity leaks onto my skin.
I'm with you on the breathing...so simple yet so effective!ReplyDelete
It's nice not to drive home in the dark now too, huh? The days are getting longer...a sure sign!ReplyDelete
breathe. breathe. sometimes we need to be reminded to do that! :)ReplyDelete
yes, that's the trick. such beautiful roses.ReplyDelete
Maybe you can swipe some branches of that dogwood and force them inside. Wish ours were budding here already!ReplyDelete
yep breathing helps... it's good for you you know! I too noticed something with buds today so it looks like hope is on the horizon.ReplyDelete
I haven't taken the time to breathe lately. I am going to do just that!ReplyDelete
it is, indeed. we just need to remind ourselves of that sometimes. thanks char.ReplyDelete
I love getting to see a little bit of your office. So glad you found a way to bring those beautiful roses into your work world! And I hear you about plowing through work. I wake up feeling swamped and feel satisfaction if I can get through my bare minimum goals--then I know it was a good day. That plus sneaking off to the beach for a moment :)ReplyDelete
breathing is very important, and so is having a nice office environmentReplyDelete
when i forget to breathe i also clench my teeth. nice combo! love your post!!!ReplyDelete
Spring blooms and a list accomplished? Excellent :).ReplyDelete
It's important to stop by your blog daily Char for me...as my steps get slower and you aid in my thought process...ReplyDelete
Thank you...slowing down sometimes is a wonderful thing!
Breathing, being determined, being inspired...and you look around you and think "life is good" xoReplyDelete
Aren't dogwood blooms beautiful? They almost look as though they have fallen from the sky and settled lightly upon the tree.ReplyDelete
