Pensive Tuesday: Under Pressure

I don't know about you all, but my calendar for the next two months is just stuffed! And most of it with "Things I Have To Do", not "Things I Want To Do".  My "Must Do ASAP" list for 2013, at least for these first few months, is so long it's giving me nightmares. I'm following a new health plan to be more fit and, well, healthy. One of the main rules is "Stop Stressing".  Yeah, right.... A lobotomy might help with that!

In the midst of all this frenetic activity and stress, how do my 100+ plants fit in? Well, it's actually very nice to have living things waiting for my attention. It means I have to stop what I'm doing, curb the stressing, and spend some time with the chlorophyllian creatures. Or they'll die. That's a pretty strong incentive to slow it down and get with the watering program. And once I do take a little time, and a few breaths, I realize that life is also about appreciating beautiful, cheerful moments. Like a blooming Babytoes! (Yes, it bloomed again.)

Do plants and pets help curb your stress and force you to breathe once in a while??
