Happy first day of Spring!
I am inspired to post a list of joyful activities to enjoy during this spring.
Last year, I didn't do a Spring Joy List; we had just started what was supposed to have been a two-week "shelter at home" period and worries about the pandemic and keeping safe took precedence over just about everything else! Last spring's joys were finding enough toilet paper, sanitizer, and face masks!
This spring, the pandemic and the need to keep safe are still a concern; however, there are vaccines being made available, we've learned to sew face masks (although wearing them seems to be still a problem for some), and there's toilet paper on the store shelves again!
I think it will be a good year to post a list of spring joys, again. My last list was in 2019. Some of this year's spring joys are repeats, but, they are no less joyful for being repeated!
2021 Spring Joy List:
* The warmer temperatures
* The longer evenings
* Spring gardening
* Flower arranging
* Daily walks in the garden
* Bird watching in the garden and listening to bird songs
* Celebrate Sri Lankan New Year (April 13)
* Play with fabric
* Craft projects with daughter
I think it makes a nice list of joyful activities to enjoy doing this spring. Some are daily activities (enjoying the warmer days, longer evenings, etc.), some are weekly joys (flower arranging, crafts, etc.), and others (like celebrating Sri Lankan New Year) are a one time thing. Everything on my list are activities I can do alone or with my daughter, at home, as neither of us is ready to go out and about unless we have to.
What are some spring activities that bring you joy? Will you be making a spring joy list?
