Saturday morning it was 37 degrees. That was a whole lot warmer than we have had in a long time. So I bundled up, opened the windows and the slider door and turned off the heat for an hour. August loved sitting in the window still watching the cars go by, and squirrels running. I pulled all the remaining winter decorations and piled them on the table. Then took out the spring/summer ones and began placing them where I thought they looked good. It was a joyous morning. Hubby was out of the house so I cranked up music and went to town. It felt good to say goodbye to all the dark winter items and sick germs that have been in this house for months Instead I now see bright colors and the air is fresh.
Gone are snowmen and winter candle bird stand - Now we have
Summer bird houses and a spring tree.
Outside our front door where this snowman once stood to welcome in friends
We now have this bright an and sunny sign with butterflies on it. Did you know that Butterflies are the new decoration for this year? I love butterflies, don't you?
After an hour, the slider was closed and the windows were shut and we bundled up under a blanket and took a nap.
Sunday I was up for a few hours before I looked outside and saw this:
Really? It's don't look like much but it's on top of this:
YUP, we still have a whole lot of the white stuff and we had a few days of drizzily freezing rain so there is a crust on top of the snow. Frozen snow is hard to move through and with a soft layer of fresh powder, it's becomes slippery. So Winter is still with us but I don't care----- I'm inside looking at this.
We had a great worship service on Sunday morning and another great time at small group Sunday evening. In between I worked on some more cards, took a nap and got ready for the work week.
How about you? What did you do?
