April - Spring Snow - Evergreen

 

 

On the Tracks

I was up early out & about.
When I got home – I thought I’d take a short nap.
Several hours later I wake up to see that I basically slept the day away.
Oh well – I guess my body needed the rest.

Here’s a shot I took this morning while at some nearby train tracks.
It’s a little off center. But – I still like it.
Hope you like it too.

Spring & National Pet Day

Hi Peeps- :)

Not that long ago it seemed like winter would never end.
A couple of weeks ago – Wendell shared This Lovely Spring Day.
Well – I haven’t seen anything blooming around here yet.
But – it has been getting refreshingly warmer & I can hear birds chirping outside my house.
Those little chirpies are music to my ears.
♪ ♫ ♩ ♬ ♭ ♮ ♯ ° ø

Oh – and – in-case you didn’t already know…
…today happens to be National Pet Day.
Fenway wants to know – Have you hugged your pet today?

Feel free to share a link to one of your 2014 spring sightings or of your pet(s) – in the comments section below.

Hello Peeps

Today I received a message from her that made me smile.
Rosy when I made this I could not think of a title and Hello Peeps seemed appropriate which of course makes me always think of you!   :)
I know – so many smiles lately on my face – I think that it’s going to freeze like that.

Once upon a March 31st – Ralph posted a request for Valentine Cards.
How could one not want to fulfill this adorable man’s request?
So – as soon as I could – I got to work on a card.
Before getting started – I asked him for his favorite color.
And this was his response:

My favourite colour is aquamarine with a dash of ocean blue, toned with Alpine snow, contrasted with a hint of a desert camel by a oasis of date palm beige.
So- with his response – I went into my archives & customized a photo just for him.
You can see the Valentine that I created & the cards that others sent his way by clicking here & here.

Well – I knew that Ralph would appreciate what we did for him & post a thank you - because that’s how he rolls.
But – what he did went above & beyond.
He went out of his way to not only say thank you – but – to send a thank you.
And – the thank you that he sent came via a Sobre Verde.
You can catch the reality show type video of what I’m talking about here.

I received my Sobre Verde last week.
In it was a thank you card, a Ralph card, a keychain with Ralph’s photo on it & a scarf.
Gracias RaLph – for the thoughtful thank you gift.
Most of all – thank you for sharing your kind spirit & fun-loving sense of humor with us via your blog.

He Loves Me – He Loves Me Not

Why the lies?
Why the deceit?
Why force me into a momentary crazed rage?
A hurtful truth would have been easier to handle
than this mess on my bed.
Now his lies have become my lies.
One by one – I place boulders above their bodies
at the spot where he once proposed to me.
He loves me.
He loves me not.

Drop Dead Gorgeous

It was supposed to be a quick in & out -
Just a few adjustments here & there.
It’s not like I’ve never had any tune-ups before.
They say that there’s always a risk with any surgery -
No matter how big or small.
But – I figure – when you pay top dollar -
you’re basically paying for a guarantee.
No?
Well – apparently not.
The doc had a heart attack mid cut
& went straight for the jugular.
At least that saggy wrinkle is gone.

Do You See What I See?

Clouds - Sky - Smiles

Oh no! – Spring Snow

Woke up to the wind howling
Looked out the window & what do I see?
Snow!
No surprise really.
But – c’mon!
Later – the sun decided to show up.
But – I knew better than to be fooled by that.
I went out with the dog for a few seconds.
And – by a few seconds -
I mean – he did his thing & we came right back in.
Brrr… It’s cold out there.

Current temp 23°F / -5°C with winds at 20-30mph / 32.2-48.3kph

Someone – anybody – PLEASE send me some real spring!
