Spring Dreams


I keep thinking that March means it's supposed to get warmer. Last week was not an example of that. Blue skies and sunshine - I was hoping that would mean a severe reduction in snow. But nope. Oh well. Maybe this week the thaw will start...

To my disappointment, it was snowing this morning. Not only did I lose an hour of sleep for Daylight Savings Time, but it's been cold and now it's snowing. I mean, COME ON ALREADY!! For goodness sake, it's March - time for melting and a little more warmth, not more snow! Anyhow, as I was checking out the flakes through the sliding glass door, I noticed we had a visitor in the back yard.

We've had evidence of visitors earlier (darn moose poop!), but I didn't see the culprit. I was a little late for work because I decided I needed to get the shot instead of dash off to work. Turns out that was okay, since roads were super slick and it was nice to have fewer cars on the road. I really will be glad when it starts getting warmer, but it's fun to see the wildlife in the midst of my suburbia.

I am so over daylight savings time. We don't save any time! We lose it! I felt cheated my entire weekend...

I'm right there with you! I wish they'd leave us at the summer time - I'm enjoying the extra evening light. I like the extra hour in the fall, but *hate* giving up the hour in the spring.
