Antsy, a word you really don't hear too often. Maybe in reference to a childs mood right before Christmas. That word best describes how I feel right now, at this moment. Did that word originate from the phrase "ants in the pants"? H'm,,, I would think so.
Snowy out, extreme cold moving in and I'm attempting to re-arrange my thoughts towards creating and reading and focusing, really focusing. Not sure what the deal is, but I am having some issues with the latter.
I suppose the days after Christmas are always like that. Kind of unsettled from all the excitement and goings on, don't you imagine? Do you get like that too?
I haven't walked for over a week, and I believe that is a big part of why I'm feeling that antsy feeling. When I walk I release stress and think about all the ideas that are floating around in my head, sometime feeling overwhelmed by them, but walking always settles those thoughts down and seems to keep me in a happy medium. Walking is my form of meditation and it seems my body rebells if I don't allow it to meditate.
As I gaze out my dining room window I see the deep piles of snow here and there along the sidewalk. I am walking today! No more looking out this window. Put on those warm wraps, (my grandma used to call them that), and snow boots and get those ants out of my pants! Shew ants, get out of here!!
This came in the mail the other day.
After looking through the paper catalog, I'm pondering those winter thoughts of planning my little garden. Not quite ready to make those plans yet, those blooming feelings usually don't appear until February. Kind of like a built in detector in my head.
I would imagine if I lived in the country my feelings of uneasiness would be less severe.
For then, I would be feeding the chickens, milking the cow, and chopping extra wood for the long winter ahead. My days would be filled with countless hours of chores just to maintain the farm.
I like those thoughts...
Enjoy caring and sharing winter days.
