Signs of Spring......

We have had the most beautiful spring weather the last few days.  Everything is beginning to bloom and the birds are singing and making their nests.  I've been able to work in the garden and yard a bit and do some painting.  My friend, Katie, gave me a new book, "Astrid & Veronika", and I set on my backporch in the sun yesterday afternoon and read.  That's one of my favorite things to do but I don't often allow myself that luxury.

Last evening, as I drove through Springfield, I was amazed at how quickly everything had "burst forth".

I pray today for the people of Japan.  What an overwhelming task lays ahead for them. 

Peace!

The trees are brilliant! I love it all..... as I write this, toads are loudly singing from the pond.... Japan.... hard to wrap my mind around such devastation and loss of life so quickly.

I plan on getting down to Leola's very soon. Can't believe I missed Open House. Lot's going on in my world over the past couple of weeks. Hope to see you soon.
