Winter is upon us

I should definitely clarify the title… what I mean is this: Winter is upon me. Because real winter hasn’t officially started. But for me, anything below 50 degrees is winter, and so my winter has already begun here in Nashville. Gone are the days of 90 degree weather [sad emoji]

There are things about winter I like; Christmas, snow, warm fires, walking through chilly, quiet forests, foggy mornings, snuggling with my dogs…

Dang, the more I think about those things the less upset I get. But for now, grrrrrrrrrrrr!!!! I wish it was spring already. How many days?

Spring Is Here!

I recently noticed the leaves on the trees in my backyard.

Spring is here!

One tree has a bunch of spinny things that float down to the ground. Another has some tiny green leaves. This weekend I will mow my grass.

Spring is here!

Television stations are airing finales and cueing up the re-runs. Flowers are blooming, the sun is shining overhead.

All this means one thing: Baseball is boring. And Spring is here!

Put down your Wii controllers and pick up a tennis racket. Turn off American Idol and go take a walk under the stars!

Spring is here…¬†and the NFL draft already happened!
