Never-ending-winter... Dealing with it....

Ya' know, I don't really like April Fool's Day.  I don't care for the premiss... Making someone look like a fool.   It doesn't appeal to me.  Most probably because it has been done to me, and I didn't like it.  So.....   Tomorrow will simply be, the first of April.  In my world, that is.  :-)

Susan Branch's mini calendar page, is very spring-y and pretty.  Although we still seem to have snow falling randomly, around here.  Yish......

We tend to get grumpy, over snow still falling...  But I found some wise words, on a blog...  Where she is still dealing with spring snowfall.  And her words, show how to deal with this bothersome happening....

It is in the post, "Waiting For Spring," in the always beautiful "Beauty That Moves" blog....  Scroll down, past the 3rd photo, and her hopeful words are there.   I really don't like to copy words, in another blogger's post.  So I'm not doing so.  

But if you are in need of a way, to keep facing this forever-continuing-winter, please go over and read her paragraph.  I guarantee, you will go away happier.  :-)


By the way, have you noticed getting 'Service Unavailable' messages, when you have tried to access blogs, on Blogger?  I have seen them today.  Even when I am trying to do this post.   Wondering if I am the only one?  Or what's going?  Or what...?


"Spring is not the best of seasons.
Cold and flu are two good reasons;
wind and rain and other sorrow,
warm today and cold tomorrow"

Thank you, to my Dear Readers, for your comments on my "Not Cool" post.   You have put that worry of mine, to rest.  :-)

"preciousness"... from the past...


at the moment, I have the above photo, as my Banner picture.  our three beautiful grand daughters!  this photo was sent to me, on my recent Birthday, by my daughter-in-law, the mom of the middle "cutie."  :-)  Thank you, 'T'!!!!  

it was taken, nearly 10 years ago, when middle "cutie" was graduating from grade school.  and this was at a family party, to celebrate.

it has been my blogging policy to not post very recognizable pictures of my grand children.  not past baby-hood.  and not until they are mostly grown.  but since this photo is nearly a decade old, and since the three of them are so much more grown up, by now...  I figure I can post away!

they still look-like-themselves, of course.  just more beautiful.  and it is so, so, so much fun, to "look back"...  :-)




here's hugging you, our beautiful "baby bunnies"...  :-)
