It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time for Wishcasting with Jamie Ridler Studios. Today’s prompt is
What Do You Wish to Tend?
Usually Wishcasting prompts are hard for me. Not this week.
I’ve got three things weighing heavily on my mind this week: my health, the yard, and my relationships.
I was at the doctor yesterday for a check up to see how things are going. It’s been a month since I went on a couple of new medications. And I haven’t felt right. I talked about that on Monday. The doctor thinks that what is wrong with me is a reaction to medication and stress. I’m willing to go with that for now, but the truth is that I’m still scared. I like and trust this doctor, so I’ll go with him for the time being. There are a few things that need to happen, though, in addition to remembering to take my medication on a regular basis.
Those things include regular walks with my doggie, meditation, leaving work at decent hours, eating more fruits and vegetables, breathing deep.
Those things get tended to and the rest of my life falls into place, I think.
Spring is here, and we’re beginning to gather those things that we want to put in the flowerbeds. I hit everything with miracle grow Sunday night, and to my eye, the flowers are already reacting. We’ve got things to put in the ground, planters to finish, raised garden beds to build. I’m ready for things to be green and growing, to spend time making them beautiful. It’s also time for us to spread some grass seed and fertilizer. The only way we prevent the sand burrs is to get the lawn healthy.
And last but not least this week is tending to my relationships. Tonight, my sweet husband and I had dinner with my friend Betsy and her family. They were passing through on their way to New Orleans. I haven’t seen Betsy since her baby was tiny, and her baby is now in 2nd grade. What is that about? How in the hell did that happen? We’ve kept in touch via email all these years, but we haven’t even talked on the phone. But seeing her tonight was like we’d never missed a beat. I can’t let my relationships get that far gone. It’s too important to nurture those connections…and I miss those people! I have GREAT friends! I need to see them more often.
What do you need to tend to this week? What things need your attention?
