Coming out of Hibernation



There's something about the way the street looks when its just rained, there is a glow off the pavement, a glow I had almost forgotten. The animals are starting to come back now, each morning I hear more and more birds singing as they bask in the warmer weathers. The squirrels are starting to awake too, Friskey sits in front of the window in awe of their delicate dance across telephone wires above him.

I feel very much today as the animals must feel. Like the warmer weathers and lessening of snow is waking up my soul, allowing me to come out of hibernation. I have all my windows open, letting the unseasonably warm breeze overtake my apartment and push out the now stale winter air. Maybe I am jumping mother natures gun here, but I really do feel that spring is at the doorstep, knocking, VERY loudly! Do you feel it?


I really feel like I am getting ready to grow some new branches, spread my foliage and bloom. My body aches to paint and be creative. To write, and draw, and dance outside. I can't wait to get my hands in the dirt, clear away last years underbrush and make room for the new growth.



My body is doing some interesting things as well. I am just getting over strep throat where I spent 23 hours a day in bed, and the other hour puking - don't know where all the puke came from, I couldn't eat for 4 days lol... It's really jump started my spring cleansing process.

I'd like to say that I have missed all of you, but I really haven't really missed anyone because I've still been coming to your blogs, reading, lurking behind the shadow, being inspired, trying your posted recipes, feeling each time that we've sat down and had a cup of tea together. I will be glad to get back into the community tho. I realize now how much I missed blogging, it was almost like meditation for me to come here, read and write. I am feeling the vibe again tho.
I can't wait to see what the spring has in store for all of us (yes, winter for some of you too).

Check back soon, I am going to have some great organic recipes for green house cleaning products, simple things we all have in the cupboards already!
Until then,
Embracing this Journey,
Bret =)

YAY!!!! Welcome back!! I feel the same way, I'm sitting here with my computer room window wide open and just loving the smell of the freshness in the air. I know we have a few more cold weeks ahead but I ALSO know that it will be NOTHING like January and it's only a matter of time before we're out in t-shirts and capri's soaking up the sun!!!

Welcome back! This warm weather is so nice. A break from the harsh winter makes everyone hope it's here to stay. Maybe the groundhog was wrong?

I hope your strep throat stays gone. A lot of people have been getting sick where I live as well. Looking forward to cleaning recipes! Our house sure could use it. <3

Yes! Welcome out of your winter hibernation!
So glad you're back. Missed your posts.
I feel it too, even though I'm sure more snow is on the way.
It's been so refreshing to go outside and see dirt, see brown grass...it's been too long of a winter.

Enjoy re-connecting with your tribe!
(((hugs)))
Strep throat -ugh!

I'm glad you're back - I missed reading your posts - and also glad you're feeling better. Strep throat sounds horrible.

Looking forward to the housecleaning recipes!

Hello!! Missed your writings but understand sometimes that's just how it goes.
Very sorry to hear about the strep. Glad you're feeling better and looking forward to Spring. My neighbor was outside the other day when it got extra warm for Feb. and was weeding her front garden. It's very windy here today though.

An early wish for a wonderful weekend!!

You are missed.Glad you are feeling better, and opening up those windows.Looking forward to your cleaning recipes - I try to use natural ingredients and natural fabric dyes - I'm boiling up some eucalyptus leaves right now ready to "marinate" a twined-up cotton shirt.

I am the sort of guy who passions to taste brand-new things. Right now I am making my private solar panels. I'm managing it all alone without the aid of my staff. I am using the net as the only path to acheive that. I came across a really amazing site that explains how to make solar panels and wind generators. The place explains all the steps required to solar panel construction.

I am not really sure bout how accurate the information given there is. If some people over here who had experience with these works can have a peak and give your feedback in the page it will be grand and I would really appreciate it, because I truly passion solar panel construction.

Tnx for reading this. You people are the best.
