randomness


Yesterday as I was puttering around the house, trying to breathe through all this stuffiness I happened to look outside. I mean really look outside. Yes, I had looked out several times earlier, but apparently I wasn't paying attention, because after the rain cleared out we were left with a carpet of green punctuated by little white flowers. Overnight, the stark brown winter lawns had been replaced by beautiful green springy ones. How could I have missed it.



It was just the nudging I needed to race (okay race might be stretching it) around the house throwing open doors and windows. Ahh!!! spring air. 

OUCH!!! Seriously?? did I already get a bug bite? Is that anyway to start off this season of bliss? That unwanted intruder was quickly dispensed with (okay I had to chase it around like crazy woman for awhile) back into his outside world.

I really couldn't breathe after all of that pseudo exercise so I decided to weed through my photos. (That would be the reason that these photos don't actually have anything to do with what I am saying) I thought it was probably a good idea to let you know that, because you were probably thinking I had been drinking too much cough syrup. 



Oh wait, that one actually has open windows. How terribly clever of me. (total fluke)

Isn't it amazing how some green grass and a warm day can lift your spirits. Promising you that there are better things ahead. That soon you will be digging in the warm earth and smelling freshly cut grass. That flowers from your garden will be decorating your table. That sandals and shorts will replace heavy coats and boots. That the cycle of life continues on.



I hope wherever you are that spring is starting to show up at your house, too.

  3. Laura, It snowed here today. I shoveled some and swept the snow form the porch. But hey, tomorrow will be in the 60's. I love that you could open your windows...that is what I want to do also. I love airing my house out....just hope the dang neighbors don't want to burn stuff on the one nice day. Go figure...huh? Ha, something was flying around my face and sounded like a mad bee just last week. Blessings for a great day. , xoxxo,Susie

  4. The sun has finally come out here and the rain has stopped. The grass is greening up a tiny bit but that is the only sign of spring around here. The photos fit in with your post very nicely!

  5. Today it's spring and tomorrow will be winter again. So it goes here this year. I'm glad you have had rain and have green grass with flowers in it and you can open your windows to the fresh air. Enjoy!

  6. Spring is coming here to Houston and I'm trying to enjoy it while going through Mom's stuff. Yes or No is my constant question. It is tiring for both of us! Hugs!

  7. We are having snow. It never ends. We had a lot of rain first but it switched to rain. Cold but supposed to warm up next week.
    Is that your cute little house in the last photo.
    I hope that you feel better. It's miserable when you are stuffed up like that.
    ((((HUGS))))

  11. Hope you're feeling better, Laura! Spring is here but there's not a lot of physical evidence of it as yet. Except for almost all the snow having finally melted! When it warms up this week, I plan to check out the property to see if I can see anything budding or emerging from the ground.

  15. Spring is here as well. How do I know? Bug bites on every inch of my body and I can feel each of my muscles from gardening all weekend... Oh, that, and the sun shining, birds tweeting... Life is good, sometimes. I love that picture with the old glass lamp.
