right now

So many things I’m wishing and hoping and looking forward to today … Jake’s summer break, 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep, a summer full of vegetables delivered to my door … but most of all there is that constant, constant yearning for warmer weather, for Spring to start for real.

But right now we have snow again.  So, I am taking a deep breath and trying to appreciate one last, very last (*fingers crossed*) time the beauty of snow, the way this clumpy wet snow sticks to trees and rooftops like frosting, the wonder of waking up to a world transformed by a nighttime snowfall.
Ok, that’s enough appreciation.  Let’s get on with Spring already.


All too often I find myself inhabiting the lands of Someday and Might-Have-Been.  Right Now is an exercise I try to practice here every Tuesday, an attempt to let go of anything that is holding me back from paying attention to the truly wonderful life I’m living right now.  Feel free to join in with a comment or a link to your own post!

  1. We’ve not got any new snow – but we’ve still got feet of the old dirty stuff…and there’s really no point in hoping for spring here until sometime in April…

    Happy Spring to you! Have a lovely day…

  2. I love your “Right Now” posts. Since having Harper we’ve had to slow waaay down and have been actively trying to cultivate mindfulness and appreciation for our “right now.” We are working on letting go of what we call our “future addiction” and learning to savor the now-ness of this magical, blessed time in our life.
    Thank you for sharing your right now!

  3. So many lovely things to look forward to 🙂 I love that you get your veggies delivered to your door! That is so neat! I think we are finished with snow but now we have months of rain and mud to look forward to *grin*. I hope spring weather comes your way real soon 🙂

  4. oh, yes. hurry up, spring!
    but not too fast . . . cause we don’t want all our neighbors to flood out . . .
    but some more sunshine would be awesome!

    and p.s. your little girls are so. stinkin. cute! 🙂
