The Robins were looking for food.

I stood at the backdoor
and smiled.

All the birds are delightful.

The ice

and snow

brought many birds to the feeders.

I am so very fond
of White Throated Sparrow.

The Carolina Wren sang

as more and more Cardinals came for seed.

My smile grew

until I was laughing.

The birds filled me with

Gaining Strength

I am back walking!
It feels great too.
I am not up to my 1 1/2 hours a day just yet but I am working
on gaining strength.

I am feeling better each day.
I am 98% well. A tiny bit of tightness in my chest remains.
The pneumonia wore me down a bit but I am bouncing back!

I have added 20 minutes of meditation to my afternoon.
Twenty minutes of outside quiet time with the birds.

I am restored and refreshed from being in the silence
and in the sun.

The Neti pot is helping my congestion.
I am so happy to be feeling better.

Healing mist

My son and daughter-in-love sent a beautiful diffuser

and healing oils.

The mist is amazing.

I love this scent she blended.

I have been turning the diffuser on three times a day
while sitting at the kitchen table and reading.
I am sure the mist has helped in my recovery.

Today I went out for the first time in weeks.
I went for a hair cut and facial.
It felt great to have some spa activity.

When I was sick it was suggested to me to get
a Neti pot to help with congestion.
After reading about the benefits of the Neti
I decided to get one.

I shall add this to my morning routine.

Last night while relaxing
I hand stitched two wool hearts
and filled them with roving that I had soaked in rose oil.
February is heart health month.
Holding hands with my husband keeps my
heart in perfect health.
 Scented hearts under our pillows is divine!
I think I will do up a few more hearts.
One in my purse would be nice.
Oxytocin is released by touching and scent.

I sat in the sun for a little
while this afternoon.

I could feel the
Vitamin D!

There is a pair of
Yellow-shafted Flickers
that have begun to court in my backyard.
The Carolina Wrens
and the Northern Cardinals have begun
their morning song.
Snow still lays on the ground but it is melting.

A strong breeze came up just when the Crows were
returning to their roost.
Time for me to go in and have a cup of tea.

It has been a very long illness.

The pneumonia has left me tired.
I am determined to be well!

I have my Ayurveda books open.

When I can spend time in the sunshine
on the deck with the birds
I feel well.
The Carolina Wren
sang the sweetest song.
The snow is blue,
as below so above.
