Lately we have been having some TRUE spring days and the weather is just invigorating! I LOVE it! My favorite climate is around 72 degrees (although I also love a good rainy day for staying inside and making soup:)
I’ve taken several walks and the blue skies make me feel all bubbly inside. This morning I took my big camera outside because my Irises are blooming! I’m sure my neighbors thought I had lost it outside, still in my pajamas. But Irises are my mom’s favorite flower so I always think of her when I see them. She loves their sweet scent and we can’t believe someone hasn’t invented Iris-smelling perfume or candles?!?
They are so delicate and it had just rained. I have tried cutting them to vase indoors but it never works out for me- they kind of wither- so I snapped away and will have the photos to enjoy instead!
The Spring blooms and clear, blue skies are two of my favorite things this week and here are some others:
- This article: These 10 Truth Bombs for Middle Schoolers Will Be Total Lifesavers for Your Kiddo. If I could mandate that every middle schooler it, I would. But so far, I’ve been unsuccessful at getting even my own middle schooler to read it.
- This article from Parade Magazine (in the Sunday newspaper): Exceptional Minds Movie Magic It makes me so happy to know that society is learning about how different we all are and instead of focusing on what we can’t do, focusing on what our gifts are!
