Last night we had our little Nowrooz celebration. The food was fantastic if I do say so myself. It was so good, we didn’t have any left. A lot of people brought good wine, though. So at least I have that – the house is clean, and I have wine.
I’m so glad that Spring is in the air. I can feel it. It’s giving me a burst of energy (usually, but not today. Today I’m exhausted). When I take my dog for a walk, I can smell the buds on the trees, and the air is fresh. I would like to start waking up early and get outside before I go to work. I haven’t been able to do so lately. I need to get to bed a little earlier I think.
Our band has a couple of possible gigs coming up in the next few months. We have a LOT of practicing to do. I have a few more craft shows coming up too. I need to make my display space a bit smaller than before. So now I’m trying to think of ways to display my napkins and belts in the most efficient, yet effective way possible. Next weekend, I may have some pictures of how I intend to do that.
A couple of things that I realized from this past week: I really like my job. It’s harder, there’s more work to do, and it’s challenging, but I think that’s why I really like it.
And I have been reluctant to throw a party for many years. I don’t know why. Mitch and I used to throw big parties all the time. And then we had one…maybe nine years ago, and none ever since. I think I was scared to do so. I was scared I couldn’t handle it. But after last night’s small Nowrooz celebration, I realized that I had nothing to be scared of, and there are a lot more people I want to invite and introduce to each other. So this summer – we’re finally going to have a big party. My daughter will be thrilled. She’s been bugging me for one for years.
