Each day, I spend time watching webinars, reading research papers and thinking about the ideas on how to prepare for providing dental treatment when we are allowed to reopen, while still protecting my patients, my staff and myself.
But this time can also cause a lot of anxiety. So, this weekend, I also spent some time outside working in my yard. The weather was so much better than last Sunday. Sunshine and fresh air is great for reducing anxiety.
On Tuesday, I had a load of mulch delivered. Seventy five bags of cypress mulch to spread around the shrubs and trees. And, ten bags of black mulch for the flower beds (I like how this mulch looks like dirt when spread around flowers). So, this weekend, I starting spreading the mulch and making my yard ready for summer.
I also pulled out my yard art and put them in the planting beds and planters. It’s nice to have something lovely to lift my spirit.
A few weeks ago, I found a lovely flower wreath for my front door. It really brightens up my entryway.
I even put out some new yard art that I made over the winter. I now have a glass frog and a glass ladybug in my planting beds. I’ll give some details on how to make these later this week.
What really made today perfect, was reflecting on God’s creation around me.
- The beauty of the flowers popping through the ground.
- The delight of the bird’s singing in the trees.
- The wildlife wondering through my life (well, maybe not the turkeys!).
