Two Days Before the Official Start of Spring


So we did a little walking around outside this afternoon.  The sun feels so warm on your face and it quickly warms whatever dark colored clothing that you may be wearing.  And then the breeze picks up again and quickly cools off everything once again.  My hands felt awfully cold without having any gloves on them.  I quickly shoved them into my vest pockets.

I checked my garden beds just to see where I was after the past couple weeks.  Yeh, looks are deceiving.  They looked like they were thawing well that is until I put my garden fork in them.  I hit frozen soil only a couple inches down.  The weather lady says it may be warmer tomorrow versus what was forecasted.  Well, I guess I’ll get back out and turn the soil to help encourage it to thawing out.

In the mean while there is some lawn to walk and sticks and minor branches that blew out of the trees over the winter that need picked up and deposited in my fire pit.  It’s time to gather them all up and maybe I’ll have a bit of a fire next weekend to get rid of them all.  So yeh I’m getting a tad anxious for warmer weather.

I think this is the part where you are to write something clever and witty about yourself. I’m solidly locked in middle age and content with myself. I love to travel to see and experience new things, new foods and new drink. I also like to cook and bake mainly because I like to eat. And I found out that I’m pretty good at both. I'm not a professional blogger nor do I want to be. I'll leave that to others while I'll kick back and post whatever suddenly pops into my brain. I'm more spontaneous anyway. And the rest we’ll just kinda sorta figure out as we go along. Feel free to leave comments or even just to say "Hello". Find me at:

  1. Looks lovely. We had plus 7 C here today and I couldn’t find any snow left today and I saw the first crocus, so now we must have Spring around the corner. “Pling”

  2. We had a total winter wonderland thing going yesterday evening. It started as few flurries then I noticed it getting darker and the snow really came down. There had to be about 3-4 inches but it was the light fluffy stuff and most of it’s melted today. Looks like we might skip spring this year.
