I smile
when looking out the kitchen window
early this morning
I saw a bluebird at the bird house
they occupy every Spring.
He was so quick I could not take his picture
I cannot find
my image taken last year
so borrowed this from Google :)

Now I know
even though ice on much at the moment
Spring will arrive
for they probably are never wrong
and planning for Spring...

Made a quick trip outside to refill feeders
sure was icy
boots on
and was careful.

Almonds and cashews
I love
but so hard to chew.
Just learned something that I did not know.

I will now keep a container with different kinds of nuts
soaking in water in refrigerator.   Removes much that is not good for you
and they are somewhat softer.
You can check it out on Google.

Just returned from having tires rotated, oil change
and car filled with gas.  It started pouring rain while
doing all of this and temperature is dropping.

Some more items off of my to do list
which seemingly never ends.

I sure was wrong when I was younger and had
thoughts of the future
not being as busy - it has not happened yet.

Time for early evening
something to eat
and would like to read...

The Bluebird of Happiness.


I need this.


The weather gods are forecasting another dismal storm on its way from Maine.

So many are so fed up with this looooong winter.

Though I sat and watched a spectacular sunset this evening. I love the returning evenings.

I think I used to envy my mama when she retired from her town job; I thought she had all the time in the world to do as she pleased. Now I'm finding it not to be so because I never get everything done.

We do have to be extra careful on this ice! Tomorrow will be a break before another chance of ice. Do take care!

I never, ever thought my life would be like this, when I was younger (40's). We take anything kind of beautiful, hopeful sight we see to remind us--there is always life (spring) after death (winter).

There are always errands and chores. Unless you have servants!
