I am in love with this world . . .
I have climbed its mountains, roamed its forests,
sailed its waters, crossed its deserts,
felt the sting of its frosts, the oppression of its heats, t
he drench of its rains, the fury of its winds,
and always have beauty and joy
waited upon my goings and comings.

Spring weather has brought sun, rain, hail and wind to us the past few days ...
Yes, I'm checking the weather and temperature each morning, in order to decide between a winter coat, a spring coat or a rain coat...
Back in my childhood in Finland, I remember that April was the month when the snow was beginning to smelt, making small brooks and becks, where we would play with boats made of bark.
Our younger son has been down with influenza last week - It's great that he's gotten well and back to school - and that the rest of us seem to have skipped the virus this time.
I have been without sugar 3 weeks ... I just had to try if I could make it and how it would be!
I was surprised to experience headache the first 2 days (maybe that was a coincidence?) - and also that after 5 days, the graving for sweet things just lost it's power on me!
I have sipped tea in the evenings - and it has been easy to skip the cakes at the work. This weekend I was to a birthday party, where I got a piece of birthday cake, which tasted fine and sweet ... So, there has been a tiny break in the sugar free period - But I will continue, and intend to keep on going sugar free still for some time.
Something nice is taking place very soon - that is, the Colour Hillsong Conference at London, starting on Thursday. As it happened, I was able to jump in as a friend to a friend swapped her place with me. We're 4 friends traveling together - we met some time ago just to an art, walk & coffee afternoon, and planning the upcoming trip.
Moreover - A dear friend of mine, whose living in UK, is able to meet with me in London ... I'm really thankful for being able to travel, and I am looking forward to this weekend!
You are never too old to
set another goal
or to dream another dream.
