thoughts on today

Two years ago we got a couple of cuttings of Lilac bushes from Mr. Produce's sister. These came from cuttings from a bush at their childhood home in Onalaska.
today... when I came home from work... they had bloomed. I had to fight the bee's off to take a couple of twigs so that I could smell their sweet fragrance in our home.
Living here in 'lavender' country... I'm starting to like the color purple in every shape and form that it arrives in my garden. Speaking of my yard, I need to work in it to get the spring weeds out!!!
I just wish I had more time.
I wish I didn't have to work.
There's so much more I 'rather' be doing.
guess that's the name of the game
and everyone's balancing act is different. And it's different for every season of life you are in. Every season and situation.
oh my head hurts from thinking. I'm just going to have to go to bed so I can get up clear headed and.... you guessed it.....

and it's not that I mind work, just wish I could work at something worthwhile. Something I liked doing. ok, my head is spinning again.
I'm just going to look at the pretty pictures and breath the heady aroma of the lilacs and then go to bed!
