Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!

We had absolutely fantastic weather last weekend – there was a bit of rain, but mostly it was sunny! And warm! I like warm. :)

It turned cold on Sunday night, and it stayed chilly until today which was another warm and sunny one. I was pretty tired when I got home from work today, but I couldn’t resist going outside for a few minutes.

So I exchanged my St. Paddy’s Day green leather boots…


For my Smurf Blue rubber garden boots…


And made my way out to the yard.

There’s still snow in spots, but it’s melting causing the usual swamp effect at the bottom of the yard. Happens every year in the spring.



Spring! Did I really say spring? Maybe it’s not quite here, but when it starts to get all warm and sunny I want to soak up as much as I can. So do the Fabulous Felines; they really didn’t spend much time outside over the winter, but now they are wanting to go out. Even if they have to head to high ground to keep their feet dry.



I definitely saw some paw shaking today. Poor guys. I bet that snow melt is cold.

But hang on guys. Spring is definitely coming. So say the Snow Drops.



I confess, recently I have been going back and visiting the early posts from last year’s garden blog. I needed to see colorful pictures of sunny days and growing things. It helped. Right now I’m just hoping that the warm weather is here to stay. We’ve had quite an intense winter and I’m ready for it to be done.

In case anyone is wondering about the fitness & diet stuff – things have been up and down. I’ve been really busy and feeling overwhelmed a lot of time time. I had a couple weeks of headaches and stiff neck, so I’ve been trying to take things easy and do the best I can (also why there hasn’t been much blogging going on). I’m hanging in. That’s about all I can say.

It's starting to feel like Spring here in NS too. Love it! :)

I covet both pairs o'the boots.

Lynn - I was talking to my Mom last weekend and she said they had hardly any snow left. NS always seems to be a little ahead of NB.

Carla - I do enjoy fun footwear. :)

This time of year, I find myself going back to old garden pictures and reminding myself that the yard will look like that once again. Keep the faith :)

Oy. I would give anything for spring right now. And those rainboots.

JavaChick said...

Merry - Doing my best! The sunny weekends help. :)

Westwood - Wish spring was in my power to dispense! The boots came from the children's section at Walmart a few years ago; a benefit of having small feet. :)
