I'm have grown to dis-like my to-do list. What once was a challenge has become one big stress ball of ink on paper. No more. Why? It's simple really.
While I'm busy running errands and checking-off that list, I'm missing out on the simple things each day. The things that I love most, like being outdoors in the fresh air and watching/listening to things in the backyard. It's important to get things done, but it's just as equally important to ENJOY your day.
This all came into the light when I walked out to the yard the other day and noticed my Camelia bush blooming. I've been so busy doing my list, I missed that it was in full bloom. Isn't she beautiful?
Here are some green lacewing eggs on the underside of a leaf. I'm always excited when I find these eggs, because the green lacewing bug eats pesky bugs.
While this is not as showy as the Camelia, it makes up for it with the sweet smell of it's flowers. Again, , something I would have missed if I hadn't taken the time to just stop and walk outside.
Once I held a yard sale and while this Sweet Olive was in bloom. Several visitors commented on how lovely the scent was.
