Okay.....so the photo is a 'little' misleading! LOL You're not in the sunny beaches of the Caribbean. You're just in my backyard. LOL But it should count for something if your mind REALLY wants to be in the Carribean!!! ^_^
Speaking of which, you can kinda go there...sailing the warm seas I mean...with Vicki and the Gardener and friends, from the blog 2 Bags Full. They just got back from a cruise and she brought back lots of photos. Go check it out!! :-)
Before the cruise they had a short stay in Florida, where they...and a few of their friends...got to see the last launch of the Space Shuttle DISCOVERY!
I love the photos (via some friends of hers on Flickr). They make you feel like you're sitting in a lawn chair right next to the launch site! LOL
But that's not where I am....I'm in Massachusetts, looking out the window, waiting for the good weather and Spring to hit "Lift Off"! So far all I have is a backyard without snow...at least for a few more minutes!...Hey!! My backyard doesn't have snow!!!!
I've been waiting for that to happen all winter!
It's still very wet, but even that sogginess will be gone soon.....Well, eventually.....maybe. :-/
Believe it or not, the forecast here today is for sleet and rain, with a high of only 45 degrees...*sigh*...I just saw on the news that we may get 1 to 3 inches of snow by tonight....*Big Sigh* :-/ .....but at least there's no snow in the backyard right now!!
Okay....so there's a 'little' snow, off to the left (far on the left there,....and behind the tree line). But I can live with that! ^_^
It'll be gone soon....and the stuff that's falling today will be gone too!....How do I know?!...Because the first 'critter' has shown up in the backyard!!
Can you see him?!......It's a squirrel!
He looks like he's trying to remember where he buried those nuts... :-] With all of the snow we've had, who knows where those babies floated off to!! ^_^ Now I'm going to float off too.
I'm going to use up some extra crochet thread today, making little backless flowers for my scrap-booking folks. I figured I could 'kill two birds with one stone'...so to speak. I'll finally use up these little bits of thread, and I'll have something to put in a new section of my Wuglyees Etsy shop..."supplies"!
Maybe I can finally get rid of some of this pink!!! I'm sure there must be some scrap-bookers out there looking for some little pink flowers for a scrap-booking project for somebody's baby girl!....Right?! ^_^ Well, you can look for these in my shop maybe some time later today......I'm going to be looking for Spring.....and now......snow and rain. *sigh*
Spring Is The Rain
Spring is the rain,
when the flowers grow again,
and new life is let remain.
After months of drench and drain,
you now see roses down the lane.
Spring is the rain,
and the budding of the grain,
and birds, out your window pane.
When the weather makes you sane,
and its no longer on your brain,
'cause there's no cold to give you pain.
Spring is the rain-
the time for traveling on the train,
for watching trees, not weather vanes,
and raking leaves-Autumn's disdain.
You lift your head, just like a crane,
and now your thought's no longer vain.
You think of seasons that were plain,
but now its blooming, down on Main,
because spring is the rain.
