Good Morning

Good morning, everyone. It's a beautiful sunny day here today, and I'm heading outdoors to enjoy the sunshine. The weather channel is predicting 20 degrees Celsius (that's 70 degrees Fahrenheit). Two of my next-door neighbors have invited me out for coffee, so the three of us are going to see if we can get into some trouble find something fun to do on a beautiful spring day. I'm taking my camera with me, and I'll report back with photographic evidence. This is my favorite time of year -- everything is so new and fresh. The tulips and daffodils are blooming, and new green leafy buds are sprouting on all the trees. Last weekend I strolled around my neighborhood taking pictures, and a robin pooped on me. Ah, yes ... a sure sign of spring.

Catch you later...

Oh have fun, Josie! I'm off to church while *he* sleeps in and then we're going to Home Depot to look at some ideas for fixing up the patio. After that, hopefully enjoy the sunshine, too.

Have fun and enjoy your spring. Here by us, autumn (fall) is starting and soon it will be winter.

My father, may he rest in peace, often said that a bird pooping on you is good luck. I'm sure you'll have a dandy of a day today. Can't wait to see what spring looks like in your neck of the woods!

Lorna said...

Jo, not that I don't want to see the other pictures that you take! I am a digital camera fan and love to see what others snap. (Like Charlene on her travels.)

I remember the days when I developed my own (black and white) prints in the second bathroom. Cameras and photography have come so far, and I am glad of it.

Jo, put things in perspective here. You could have stepped in some cow production. A robin's peep is only about the size of a nickel.

Hope you had atruly wonderful spring day. Temp is dropping rapidly here with rumors of snow. I am choosing to treat myself to a fine fire in the woodstove while I sip a cup of herbal tea; knowing that all too soon I will miss the peace and solitude. The robin poop brought to mind the song lyrics-"may the bird of paradise fly up your nose....."

*Jealous* of your 70 degrees. I got to drive from Iowa to Kansas in snow today. NOT fun. I'm hoping spring comes for a visit and stays for a few months...

Hope you had a lovely day with your nice weather :)

You look so pretty and spring-like - have fun and watch out for those robins!

SweetPeaSurry said...

Oh I hope you have a lovely time. I am positively ITCHING for spring to finally get here in the midwest. We got a snowstorm yesterday, and high winds and chilly weather again today. Soon though ... Soon spring will come!

blessings!
