It is an absolutely gorgeous day! Wish I were outside to enjoy it! But I will have to wait until later this afternoon. Maybe I will go for a run before our bonfire birthday party tonight.
This week has been an incredibly busy week, but overall it’s been good. Daffodils and crocuses are popping up everywhere, grass is turning green, the sun is shining and the skies are a gorgeous blue! My garden is starting to grow and I can’t wait to be outside tomorrow (as long as I remember to take my allergy medicine first). Yes, it’s that time of year. Hopefully I will be able to prep the ground for my second garden box this weekend. Looking forward to it!
New life springing up around me reminds me of the new life Christ sprung up inside of me. I am purposing to remember that with each flower I see blooming, each rain drop, and each sunbeam. Christ died and rose again that the winter of my life may end and blossom into springtime in my heart.
On Monday, I took a day off to study for a test to go back to school. I’ve officially been accepted at Greenville Tech for the Personal Trainer program. I’m very excited! Well, turns out I didn’t need to take the test after all (since I already have a B.A. in English), so I left there and went to this great little Mediterranean market and found some 100% natural jams (fig and apricot), dried fruits, nuts, seeds, etc. (and all at much lower prices than the grocery stores). Then I went home and sliced up some bananas, pineapple, apples, and a pear, and put them in my dehydrator. Haven’t used it in years, and now that I’ve done it again, I have NO idea why I’ve been waiting to use it. It’s so easy and I love dried fruit. I eat it as a snack at least once a day. Pineapple is my favorite, but they’re all good. I used all organic fruits, so I know it’s good for me.
