Welcome Spring

Monday, March 20, 2006

It was a beautiful sunny day but we didn't even leave the house. It is still very cold (-1 degrees C, which is about 30 degrees F), so looks are very deceiving. Being at home with the two boys left me drained and stressed; the babe is getting his top front teeth and is really cranky and my older son is really good, but was hard to amuse today. We all felt a little restless, as though we all knew that it was officially spring, and our minds and bodies need it, but it hasn't quite happened yet. Like three bears wishing we could all come out of hibernation.

Other than that, my mind was on mute today. I was thinking about Michelle, though, who lives in the vicinity of the landfall for Typhoon Larry. Thankfully, neither she nor her home was injured.

As I had mentioned previously, I read the instructions in haste and so my cherry trees did not really bloom. My son and I enjoyed watching the little crystals emerge, however. Thank you again, Alysa.

The next three days will be really busy with work. I will check in when I can, blog friends.

  1. Blogger missy said:

    Good photos! I like the little model (?) - did your son make it?

  1. Blogger Gurgo said:

    I hope spring will be here too. Up to now it's only grey, no sun at all.
    On the other side, if spring comes I have to do the spring cleaning - uhh...

    You can stop bragging about the sunshine anytime now. We have steadily (but just a constant trickle)falling snow, and temperatures on the wrong side of 0.

    In other news, I am still adjusting to the new ook. I don't mind this olvie colour, but I really really liked the blue colour. Sorry if I never mentioned that before.

    One small thing.. could you change the colour of your links? TI find the neonish mint green of an un-clicked link is very hard to read. The grassy clicked on link is much easier to see.

    We're waiting for some real Spring too. :)

    Lovely stuff. It really took me away from my stuffy, crappy office.

    thank you.

    Well, even if the crystal cherry trees didn't "bloom", you've still got some cute little berries outside!

    When you feel over burdened with lifes challenges it is the time to seek God and hand some of it over to him.

    Soon the real cherries will start blooming. My nose can't wait. ^_^

    I'm listening to the Beatles song "here comes the sun"- very appropriate :)
    Good luck with your work, I hope your energy levels get up and keep going!

    I worked my ass off today and accomplished an enormous amount of work. I finally had the chance to eat my breakfast at 4 in the afternoon and by that time I had to pick up the babe and get supper!I have just as much to do tomorrow. Loads of little work details and then I can spend Thursday writing. Just research and writing all day....

    Blackcrag; I had intended to change those, I just hadn't had the chance yet; but they are fixed, so there ;)

    Richard; I am thrilled that I was able to help you out. You will be fine and so will HH.

    I would take that temp as long as there is no wind and moisture. Think we were around 38F today but just gloomy. Nice to see a photo of something happy, take care!
