According to an old superstition it apparently will be cold for the next 40 days. It goes something like this:
"If on March 9th the wind bites,
The warm Spring won't come 'for forty nights."
OK, so I made up the rhyme. Cause it so boooringly states: If it's cold & shitty weather on March 9th it's gonna be cold for 6 more weeks. ;P
It's been right for most of the time. So it will be interesting to see if it'll hold up this year too. According to another superstition it's important to eat healthy from that day on. Just to give your immune system a boost. So stuff yourself with loads of natures bounty... Green's the colour. ;)
I borrowed this beautiful pic from ☞THIS SITE.☜
There's loads more there, so have a look. :)I do realize how much I'm in-tuned with the natural cycle of the year. No hocus pocus or mumbo jumbo. It just seem like my body's waking up now that Spring's here. On Friday I got this huge drive in me, that I haven't felt in a looong time. I actually felt the URGE to exercise! The pain's been a real hinder, but now it's being trumped by an urge...& that's so insanely nice! Hell! I'm so in-tuned that my periods been following the Moon's cycle for years. Haha! OK, a bit too much sharing - I KNOW! ...but it doesn't make it less true. ;)
Going to have some lunch now... But later on I'll post a few pics of some things I've been working on lately. Nothing huge, but I'm delving back into my creative side.
Have a lovely day!
