Shine On


Where does the white go when the snow melts?  ~Author Unknown



We finally have a mild, sunny day. It has been an awful winter and my mood has definitely been reflective of the weather. Sometimes I hardly recognize this evil-tempered person that has inhabited my body. If I had a choice, I wouldn't want to spend any time with this person.

Spring is at least two months away, but hopefully winter will begin to ease a bit, taking my dark mood with it. I will heartily attempt to contain my complaints about mud as our state warms and the snow melts. No promises though.

  1. Spring is my least favorite month - because of the mud. It's hard to contain the dogs and kids....and we end up with a really big mess.
    I AM looking forward to warmer weather though. And I am already planning the garden. That's always exciting.

  2. Spring and summer are overrated in my opinion! ;)

  3. Britwife and I over rule you Susan! Actually I don't like hot, humid weather, but this winter has been hard on me, so I look forward to a change. Mud and horses is a hell of its own though.

  4. I am glad things are finally warming up a bit! The mud thing doesn't sound to fun though! We are still in the middle of summer here but the city life eliminates mud problems : ) My Mom has plenty of feeling about mud as we grew up with a huge yard and plenty of bright orange georgia clay!

  5. I lived in Atlanta, so I remember the GA clay well. Awful stuff, your mom has my deepest sympathies!

  6. lol, we have mud all year round! Black mud instead of proper sand ...& red volcanic soil...& a rainy season [NOT spring] & I don't care any more. Mud I can live with. Rain I can live with but when the temps start going over 100F or threatening snow it's definitely time to look for more temperate climes.

  7. I was out running errands today and realized it was 48 degrees! I thought to myself that I could have been out riding the gravel roads near my home today! It made me want for spring all that much more, the worst part is that Feb. is often the coldest and March the snowiest - so it's no where near over yet!

  8. We have black clay and it's awful!

    Beth, don't remind me, I was thinking spring!

  11. S'all good. It's turned up. Nah, on your blog. My reader thingy said there was a new post but then couldn't bring it up. Probably me. Technology confuzzles me.

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.
