Yes, 2021 is here and I am fully committed to making this a Spectacular year.
I’ve already embarked upon my NEW thing: winter gardening. I live in a high-rise. So a large garden is out of the question. I have some hanging boxes on the patio that sometimes have flowers in the summer. And try to keep some herbs in pots. The herb pots are indoors now. But I decided the hanging boxes would come to life this winter.
On January 1st, I planted poppies. They do well in cooler temperatures and come in a variety of colors. Each morning I am eager to see if they made it through the cold night. I find that I am checking the weather reports a few days ahead – just to see if my new effort will have to deal with multiple nights of below 30’s temperatures. Will I need to water? Or is there enough rain in the forecast that I should hold off for a few days?
It is a different type of anticipation than I experience with my summer plantings. And the colors give a lift when I look out onto the patio. I feel Spectacular when I see them!
Another commitment? While not a new ‘thing’, it certainly contributes to the Spectacular quotient: GETTING DRESSED! I mean dressed up when I have to leave the house. Not over the top, after five dressed up. But more than tights and a sweater. When I go grocery shopping, I’ve been dressing more like I’m going shopping with or having coffee with a girlfriend. It really makes me feel good – you know: Spectacular. Doesn’t cost anything extra and the boost lasts for hours.
So, what have you committed to? What are you doing to bring some Spectacular into your days? Leave a comment or send me a message. Let me know what you are doing to bring the SaSS-Y!
