Oh spring!




First of the season.

Spring Road to Color

Spring has had a hard road this year. We have gone from bright floral displays to spring snow all in a matter of days.


It was 75 degrees and sunny on Wednesday. I knew I had to stop in the park and see the new buds. Everything was beautiful. I promise each year I am going to purchase a magnolia tree and plant spring bulbs. In a past life, I did that. I need to revisit that life.


I felt badly for the lovely pink magnolias after a surprising Saturday snow. It was as thought life went from color to black and white again. Many survived although not nearly as bright. It’s April now. I hope we no longer have a return to black and white. I am all for the color of spring.

Spring Ridiculous


This is the scene at the moment. Spring snow showers. Old Man Winter simply will not leave town. “You. Old Man. You have overstayed your welcome.”

Spring Sprung

 There are a few things that go along with spring break. One gets the opportunity of a leisurely three hour wake up. That is when you can spend the better parts of the norning reading the news online as well as watching on television. You can find wonderful new websites and visit others you have not visitied in a long time. It is the time to have that third cup of coffee and then decide to cook breakfast. All of this is possible wiwth spring break.

This is the time to paint your nails blue and listen to all of the old cds you ever wanted to listen to. “Bring it On” by Seal became an unexpected favorite for the week.  Before you know it the week comes to a conclusion. You look at your “A” list of things to do and wonder where the days went. In my case, I smile. I maybe did not get to as much of that “A” list as I would have liked to boast, but I had a wonderfully blessed week. Now that one bud looks like this.

Spring has sprung.
