~The Colors of Spring~

Nature doesn't need fake egg dye to color her eggs.  She has her own palette of colors to select from.

And it doesn't  really matter where we call home just so we are all snuggled together in the same tidy nest.

Thanks Jordan !

Writers In the Sky?

Did anyone happen to see the figure 8 being made in the sky today? This happened around 3:15 this afternoon.

If I could view if from where I live I know it could be seen for miles.
Maybe a smile face tomorrow.

~Don't Forget!~ Time Changes Sunday

The old adage is "Spring ahead, fall back."
Daylight Savings Time begins early Sunday morning at 2:00 AM so don't forget to set your clocks ahead one hour.

REMINDER: NOW is the time to change the batteries in your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors.

Get Ready For SPRING

PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa. - With parts of the U.S. socked in by snow, the world's most famous groundhog predicts spring is on the way.

"The sky is here. Prepare yourself for spring," according to the prediction Punxsutawney Phil made through his handlers.

Punxsutawney Phil failed to see his shadow, signaling an early spring.

The forecasts are concocted by Phil's handlers, the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club's Inner Circle.

German tradition holds that if a hibernating animal sees its shadow on Feb. 2 -- the Christian holiday of Candlemas -- winter will last another six weeks. If no shadow is seen, legend says spring will come early.

Since 1887, Phil has seen his shadow 98 times and hasn't seen it 16 times, including this year. There are no records for the remaining years, though the group has never failed to issue a forecast.

Oh, The Rain!!!!

I'm a sunlight person. I love the sun no matter what time of year it is. The winter months are fine with me if the days are bright. But, oh, those dreary ones and the rainy ones that make my mind wonder why it even got out of bed. Now, don't get me wrong. Rainy days are fine and I do from time to time sneak back into bed when my husband has left for work. Shhhh........

But come on..........more rain???

I was reminded on Saturday that the weather could be worse and I will agree one hundred percent. But! Come on now. We've had our share of rain and goodness knows we have had more than our share of snow!

Not today, folks. And probably not tomorrow. And here I was all geared up to take on everything I hadn't done or couldn't do during those dreary, dark days.

Oh, well. I'll try to keep the "bright attitude" my grandmother always talked about. Monday will be the same routine it has been for weeks. But I'm telling you, my umbrella and rain coat are becomming a little disgruntled. Now that's going to be a happy trio this afternoon........a raincoat that doesn't like being wet anymore, an umbrella that is tired of going up and down, and me..........looking for that "bright attitude".

Nothing else to do but "suck it up" and make the best of it. Those bright sunny days will get here. The rain will stop. Spring will come I'm sure and bring all the life and color it always does.

Just don't speak to me about HOT and don't tell me that there is a DROUGHT!

I am NOT a duck!! And the rock I crawled out from under this morning is now occupied.

And to really yank my chain I just received pictures of sun and white puffy clouds from one of my dearest friends on my facebook page. Gonna go see if she has some space down there.........

At least until spring...........................

Which begins on Saturday.
And I can't wait!!!
