The Dream

Such a beautiful day!  As I sit looking out over the luscious green grass in my new backyard, I think of all the wonderful things to do this summer.  I can get a picnic table and host a family barbecue while Puppy Cody frolicks through the flowers and chases bunnies.  I can plant trees along the newly erected back fence, and watch them grow.  Or I can simply lounge outside, drinking wine and reading a good book.  The sunshine streaming in the window brings with it the warm spring air.   The robins and butterflies have arrived.  Finally!


Yep, it’s a dream. More snow is  on the way tonight.  sigh

Granted it won’t be a lot of snow and it won’t stick, but still …

As a longtime resident of Buffalo, New York, I’ve never much been affected by dark winter weather, yet even I am suffering the beginnings of Seasonal Affective Disorder.  Ugh.  Too much cold for too long a period of time.  Surely, Mother Nature will take pity on us soon?

One can only hope.

BTW, for unrelated reasons, I will be away from WordPress for the next few days.  Please be kind to each other in my absence.  Have fun, but don’t do anything I wouldn’t do.  Says Mom.

See you in a few.

  1. I gave in and TURNED UP THE THERMOSTAT. In the middle of April. That doesn’t happen!

    I was waiting for you to tell us not to touch anything 🙂

    I think spring is right around the corner. Either that or it’s a bus.

    I know, this has been a terrible “spring”. I have to sit out with a comforter and blankets still. Arggh.

    Seems like you winter just won’t go away. And as for us, we have high winds again today, with chilly temps.


  5. We have our fourth day of sunshine, and it’s glorious. I have pink shoulders and a rosy face!
    We turned the heating off last week at the box, but not at the boiler, just in case.
    Speak with you when you get back.

    I’ll miss you as much as I can. Hurry back! I’ll be good, but I can’t guarantee some of these others. 😆

    Snow on the ground in Syracuse when I woke up this Friday, CM. Sigh. Talk to you soon.
