I have so many things I want to do.
So many places I want to go.
So many things to see.

I want to know everything about the birds
and the bees and the butterflies and the trees.
I want to know about the clouds and the stars and the Moon.

I have questions!

So today I am prioritizing!

I can take my daily walks and live my Ayurveda Way
and still have plenty of time for flowers and bees and butterflies and trees.
I just need to remember to breathe!

I like your blog!

Cheryl said...

I can so relate to that post Sherry.
I really need to spend more time with the bees, butterflies and birds. So much to see, so little time.

meggie said...

I never get tired of seeing your beautiful photos. Those red birds are so striking.

Chrissie said...

Yes, breathing is important LOL. I have so many questions too and things I want to do. I find it hard to prioritise. Most important is family, health and happiness. Sometimes I have to stop and count blessings :-)

Nice post, Sherry! I wonder why it's harder to do nothing than it is to do almost anything! Ayurveda is a good thing...

Lisa at Greenbow said...

My Dear Sherry, you must remember to breathe. The most important thing to do.

Sheila said...

Another beautiful post sherry..!
It sings 'Springtime'..!

Q you must remember to pace yourself too. Yes, it's hard when you want to know everything but sometimes it's better to leave things as bit of mystery too!

Mary said...

You know I understand! Too little time...

Sherry, we had a freeze last night. Bed linens and blankets were draped all around the yard. Some things were nipped a bit but most were saved. It was an average frost - not like last year. I thought of you.

Marvin said...

Like many of your other readers, I can relate to this post. Achieving the right balance between focus and spontaneity seems important, but I fear I may be destined to flutter about trying to do too many different things. Such is life. :-)

smilnsigh said...

Yes, breathe!

You have been ill and lost time, so to speak. Please don't try to do it all, too quickly again.

But I don't have to admonish you. You are too wise for needing someone to say that to you.


Deb said...

It's hard to get things done when the birds and bees and blooms are calling all our attention :-} I want to learn about birds and trees and butterflies and bees too. I find I learn so much with my visits here with you Sherry!

Q said...

Dear Domonika na. zurawska,
Thank you. I popped over and saw your photos of Poland. Wow!
I will come again and gaze and droll...beautiful.
Nice to get to know you.

Q said...

Dear Cheryl,
In the spring it is easy for me to forget to take care of me. I want to be outside all the time with the bees, butterflies, birds and trees.
I am working on staying balanced now that I am feeling better. Not only do I need to remember to drink my water and to get proper rest, but I need to remember to do my concsience breathing. Inhaling all the richness of spring.

Q said...

Dear Meggie,
Thank you! The Cardinals are very pretty. I am hoping to do some artsy photos this spring. The light has been rather remarkable.

Q said...

Dear Chris,
LOL!! Yes, breathing is right up there with keeping your blood in!
I have always put family before my health. These last couple of years I have learned I need to take care of me! Taking care of the birds, bees, butterflies and trees is also taking care of me!
I read and read and read some more, still I have questions! Perhaps that is why life is so interesting, so much to learn.
I love to count blessings too! It is a fun mental activity.
This post was a lead in to the post on "Ayurveda Way". I have been wanting to do a post about conscience breathing and finally was able to take some pictures that showed what I was talking about! giggles...

Q said...

Dear Sue,
Ayurveda is a very beautiful way to live. I am learning how to make this way my way of life.
I do not post on Ayruveda Way very often. Some of the concepts are sort of hard for me to find pictures of! I will keep on keeping on.

Q said...

Dear Lisa,
Breathing is important!!!

Q said...

Dear Shelia,
Thank you.
I am wanting to do a different sort of photo essay this year. Keeping with the 4 picture format but hopefully adding more depth to each entry.
My words are only to trigger your inner thoughts.
Inhale this day!

Q said...

Dear Cathy,
You are so right! Just accepting and saying, "'Tis a mystery." Hummm, I love the freedom of that.. The freedom of not having to know.
Thank you!
Exhale and let life bee.

Q said...

Dear Mary,
Work has a way of getting into the fun of living! We need to come up with a way everyone gets to work at what they love and get paid handsomely for doing so!
Sorry frosts have come to your gardens. I do remember how hard mine were hit last year.
Inhale......exhale. Enjoy what you can.

Q said...

Dear Marvin,
I too seem to be a flutter. I ask myself how important is it really??
Getting seeds in the ground will become important pretty soon if I am to have food in a couple of months!

Q said...

Dear Mari-Nanci,
Everyone needs a "getting after" every now and again! I am taking life easy.
A little bit here and little bit there. Remembering to drink my water and do my walking and to breathe in life.
Thank you!

Q said...

Dear Deb,
You are getting so many different species of birds in your gardens.
It is exciting to see them. I often wonder what really will matter in 50 years? I like to think the trees and bushes I plant now will be here after I am gone for the birds and bees and butterflies.
I also think taking good care of my body today will mean I will feel good in 20 years and will be able to still take pictures of the birds and bees and butterflies and trees.
We all have to make sure we breathe deeply and plant lots of trees for clean air! (I have a reason for posting about breathing!)

Mel said...

One step at a time, Sherry!
You'll make it all :)

Mark said...

It does seem to get harder and harder each year to find the time, it is so important to find the time though as you would go mad.

Seen a Long-tailed tirs nest fro the first time the other day.

Cheers Mark

Mark said...

Woops that should have said Long-tailed tit

Q said...

Dear Mel,
Not feeling well for two weeks did take it's toll! Now I am in full Spring and I have so many things I want to do plus have lots of fun!
I am grateful for the rainy days, they give me a chance to catch up with my blogging friends.

Q said...

Dear Mark,
I shall pop over and see if you posted pictures. I keep my Birds of Britian on my desk so I can check out your birds. I am very excited about seeing a Hoope or a Bee-eater!
There always is so much to see. Nature is amazing.

Wow I really love that Robin photo! As always you take such stunning shots!

Q said...

Dear Mon@rch,
Thank you! I have been taking pictures of my backyard wildlife for a few years now! Hopefully I will be able to do some artistic shots this year.
There still will be the bird and bug reports!
