It’s beautiful today in Ireland. Spring is in the air and, even though I have been feeling poorly after my sickness and in general (I guess this spring weakness is common thing, lack of vitamins and such…), I had to push myself to get out of the house, I did not want to go anywhere, but I knew we all needed fresh air, so we made quick trip to the park. I think it is because of my introvert + home-body nature I find it so comfortable to be at home, however once we were out, I was really happy, that I made an effort. Kids had fantastic time just running around and being wild, collecting leaves and pinecones, it was great.
I had to constantly remind my oldest boy to stay away from the water, but I think it’s more of precaution, than real danger, or maybe my overprotective nature, he was not actually going too close to the edge, but still, I felt better telling him just one more time to be careful. Ducks and swans were out, which was a treat for the baby, because he loves birds.
Ireland is beautiful, regardless of the season or the weather, but I think spring is magical, because it feels like everything is awakening, like a secret about to come to light, like a promise for a beautiful summer to come, I just love spring, it’s very special.
If you are tired mama like me, or a home-body, or recovering from illness, make an effort to get out, go for walks, get closer to nature, I promise, you will not regret it.
