Spring A Little Closer

A wonderful day was written about in my last post
and then
dipped into the 20.s the next day
and finally starting to warm again.
This morning on the way to the market
and driving down this winding road
that I have grown to love
Look what I see,  stop to
take an image in the middle of the road
and hoping no car is approaching.
Home and lunch on my sunny deck.

Email arrives that brings a smile to my face.

Hours ago
my youngest granddaughter celebrated her 9th birthday.

I remember times she has been with me in past years always asking
the question "grandma what does that mean" when I would use a word
she was not familiar with.

An avid reader and now words she shares sends her grandma
to her source of information.

Yesterday her mom wrote about this little one
and added the word my granddaughter used to describe herself
"epic."   Not a word I use and it sent me to my

-Significant, tremendous, huge, major and the wonderful
and the
description goes on.

Oh my...

Oh my goodness, you have a poet or novelist on your hands. What a wonderful thing to observe. Those daffodils were just so happy as well!!

Thank you for the beautiful gift of daffodils you've given us. Having been looking out at a blizzard and way-below freezing temps all day, I will be happy to carry that photo in my mind as we inch slowly to Spring.
The road you drive is really beautiful! Had not seen that before.
What a beautiful "epic" granddaughter!!

Tabor, she amazes me. But then all of my grandchildren amaze me :)
Marcia, thank you...

Daffodils! Truly a sign that spring is on its way. It's so special that your granddaughter is sharing pre-wedding photos with you ~

On Tuesday it was so warm outside, and as I was walking, I thought of you and how happy it would make you!

As the saying goes ~ Out of the mouth of babes. She's sweet!

Your winding road looks like some of our roads.

The bride's dress is simply gorgeous!! Years ago, I planted Daffodils all along the lane that winds through the woods to my daughter's home--planted with the help of her 5 children. Still some groups still come up and it is a happy sight indeed. Your 9 year old has Grandma's love for words!!
