Mindy here, feeling kinda blah. It's been pretty gray on the coastal plains of Texas for the last couple of weeks. Normally, I like gray weather. I mean, I've always said I have dyslexic seasonal effectiveness disorder. In other words, I get tired of the sun.
But these last few weeks have been plain lazy. There's a part of me that wonders if God's not giving us a respite from the disorder and chaos of the last year, now that the renovations are complete and we've pretty much settled into the big house.
But it still drives me crazy. Lazy isn't my style.
However, this cool, rainy weather hasn't motivated me much.
The deer don't seem to mind it, though.
Just the other day I watched this pair meander across the field behind our house for hours.
They didn't even care when the rain picked up. Instead, they stood like statues, until the one on left finally decided to relax and lie down, too.
As a former city-dweller, I can't tell you how much I love watching this.
Despite the cool rains, there are tell-tale signs that spring is on the horizon, though. Bushes are budding.
Signs of new life are everywhere, if you look.
There are even a few flowers.
Yes, hope springs forth. In the garden and in the kitchen as another birthday is celebrated--with cupcakes, of course.
Guess who turned two months old yesterday? She sure is growing fast. Before we know it she'll be crawling, walking, riding a bike!
Oh, this grammy is so not ready for that.
Now it's your turn. Since Missy, Jan and I have talked the last three days about the whole winter/spring transition, I want to know what it is about spring that you look forward to most?
