My poor Daffies …. Will they ever get a break this year???
We’ve had snow, blizzards, pouring rain, an ice storm, high winds …. all one on top of one another. There still is snow on the ground right now, darn it! It is so weird to hear Spring mating bird song with snow on the ground. It just doesn’t add up. A constant grey pall hangs low over this part of the Earth without letup or so it seems. The announcer on the radio station we listen to, yesterday said when it came to the weather …. “Let’s just skip over what is going on this week. Monday and Tuesday next week brings sun and temperatures in the 50’s.”
Everyone here has had more then enough!
Waiting for this weather to break has put me in a tailspin. I’ll be the first to admit it. I do believe this is the longest Winter I have ever seen here. It’s as though Mother is slapping us hard because the past few years have been just too nice. *huge sigh*
I’ve really tried to catch up on my cleaning. Now that only goes so far with me that is, until I just give up and settle down with a good book. I’ve read 5 books in under one week. I’ve avoided WP because the “oh nothing is gonna get me down attitude” went swirling gurgling down the toilet. I went for a long hike up at Chestnut in the pouring rain and yes did find Balance for all of one day. Then back down the toilet I went.
My Heart goes out to all of you who are having a miserable Spring as well. In spades I understand what you are going through. I know one woman who has seedlings ready to plant yet has inches of snow on the ground. She like me is crawling the walls. And if you are one of the lucky ones who has had nice weather, please hold Gratitude high in your Heart. We who are waiting for warmth and sun have tears in our eyes. This Winter just doesn’t want to loose its icy grip!

Yesterday I picked up my camera with my Canon EF 100-400mm lens attached to stir up some fun for myself. When one is waiting on weather so that one can scoot outside where that one wants to be, that one can come up with some pretty unique ideas on what to shoot. What you are about to see are shots taken from my home. This is what a woman does who is crawling the walls questioning her sanity …..
