Longing, Waiting, Wishing

Spring is being dragged by the ear, kicking and screaming, into Minnesota. Like it or not, it's being forced to happen.

  1. You are about a month ahead of us I swear - at least three weeks. Then again it snowed here yesterday so - uggggghhhh!

    I hope that it is dragging Spring North - I could use the hope.

  2. I'm so sorry for your pain. We really need rain, but it keeps missing us.

    If I could, I'd kick springs butt up there for you.

  3. Oh thank you thank you for the pictures of Ivy and Secret. They look wonderful! What an odd color Ivy turned. Julie

  4. You're welcome. I knew you were waiting! Ivy is going grey, so eventually her markings will be gone. She is a unique individual. : )


I really appreciate the concept and sentiment behind awards, but I cannot participate in them anymore. I have too may and I have not got the time to devote to participating properly. To all who have honored me, I am grateful but I don't have seven more things to tell anyone about myself! And I'm a terrible passer-oner.
