Greetings and Happy Spring!
Finally we are into the 60's in the daytime, phew, it has been a cold spring so far. Butch finally got to play golf last week and I am looking forward to joining him with my Mother's Day gift, new golf clubs! I just have to go pick them out. My clubs are quite old and when we were in Aruba I played with new ones and they felt great. Lately I have been able to get out and ride my bike and do more physical activity as the weather gets warmer.
I have been working in the garden at home and cleaning the basement and garage. We are decluttering and it is quite a job, but definitely worth it. We are going to have a "garage sale / estate sale" this year to reduce our possessions.
At the studios, we have been selling gently used clothing (old, lost and found). We have also been selling donated items this spring to raise money for Make-A-Wish and have raised quite a lot.
I have decided to put together a file of all my Feng Shui and Fitness articles and see if I can create a document or booklet. I will be reviewing and see if I have enough relevant information to publish.
We are planning and reserving flights and hotels to coordinate our trip to Europe this June. This will be our third multi-country European trip we take, when Jeannie finishes her Sophomore year at Hofstra. This year we are going to Portugal, Spain, France and England. Really looking forward to going to Spain and Portugal for the first time. So many cultural influences came through Spain from Africa throughout history. In Feng Shui studies, the cultural impact on one's journey through life is a major factor in establishing the direction of each person's life path. Also, through travel you can become more simpatico with other cultures and beliefs, all the while knowing we are all the same human species with the same desires and needs. It is not "us and them"; It is we.
