It's Tuesday - March 19 - roughly 6 o'clock in the evening - I need to run to the store to pick up a few things
Care to join me for a beautiful Spring Walk?
The plow hasn't been down the street yet - how lucky!!! OK let's go - the store's only 5 minutes away.
I may have bragged for the last couple of weeks that the snow was melting and it was very spring like here
SHUT UP SUZAN - seriously, just SHUT UP - you'd think I would know better by now .....................
Can you hear the birds chirping in the trees?
Do you see the " buds " on the bushes ?
Don't these " Pines " make you think of summer by the lake - adirondack chairs and camp grounds ?
Doesn't this no parking sign scream " Tulips " ? Just the right amount of color to send my heart soaring in hopeful glee
not enough color for you?
how about this big beautiful bouquet of Street Lights ?
and it's not ALL red - there's splashes of blue too!
Birds are starting to build their nests
Spring planters are getting filled
So if I did commiserate with any of you last week ( quite smugly I would guess - because that's what I DO )
over all the snow you had -
And if I did
PAYBACK'S AN ITCH..............it really is
Do you have a " Spring " in your walk yet?
Does this help?
nah, I didn't think so - I'm going to go eat my words with a bag of chips I just picked up at the store.
If I can't have spring - I can most definitely eat a bag of chips - the whole bag by the way -
because that's what happens when Mother Nature messes with me...................
O Canada! Our home and native land
True patriot love in all thy sons command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise
The true north, strong and free
From far and wide, O Canada
We stand on guard for thee.
God keep our land glorious and free
O Canada! We stand on guard for thee
except when it's like this Canada - then I'm all like
"Oh say can you see - from the dawn's early light............."
from somewhere in Florida
this is what I got to hail tonight ( at the twilight's last gleaming )
I will ALWAYS stand on guard for you, Oh Canada
But right now, I wish I could do it from Florida................
Montreal - where you can get 3 seasons in one week, lovely isn't it?
Just freaking lovely!
Happy Spring Everyone :)
It looks a little better today - no less snow - but the sun is out -
Thank you Mother Nature for that, at the very least! ( and I promise - no more gloating )
