The Joys of Springtime

I so love the Spring season.

The Winter doldrums and gloom goes away, and Spring replaces it with warmer weather and sunshine.

People smile more, life seems a little happier, and it’s just a renewal of life.

That pitiful looking yard becomes pretty and green, the leaves and trees bud and bring forth beautiful lush leaves swaying in the wind.

And oh the flowers and shrubs, my favorite part,  the daffodils, tulips, daisies, forsythias, petunias and on and on.

Then you can’t forget those Boston ferns for the front porch, at least down South.

I buy four every year and hang them on the front porch waiting on the little birds to come and build their nests in them for yet another generation of sparrows and wrens.  

Oh, how I enjoy them.

I start taking pictures when the eggs are laid, and their new babies and even as they grow and start flying back and forth.

I even have the bird feeders hung nearby for them to come and fuss over the food.  That part is comical watching them.

It’s just a wonderful time of year.

And Spring cant be here without cookouts and picnics and families and friends getting together for some much needed time outside.

It’s almost Spring, I for one am so looking forward to it!

How about you?

Happy Spring!!!!

Till next time…

Labor Day


I absolutely love the Holidays, some more than others, but this one I find funny in so many ways… 

 Labor Day is coming up so soon ya’ll…..

Don’t you think that’s an odd name for it?  I mean, most of the businesses and offices are closed for it. 


Because we have an official day to celebrate that we work for a living, and were rewarded with a national day off. 

In a way, I find that funny, the name I mean… We call it Labor Day, but we get the day off.

But for most of us, we tend to think of it as the unofficial end of summer

A day for fun…..  a time for family outings, picnics, and cookouts…

So take advantage of these last summer days..

Yes, it’s muggy, humid, unexpected afternoon showers, and oh sooooo hot out…..

But it’s also great times for enjoying that swing with a good book (yes I said book… a real honest to goodness book with pages, no electronics involved)

A night out under the stars…

and of course, some watermelon and peaches…..

and if you’re southern like I am a glass of sweet iced tea.

So enjoy the last few weeks of summer, because before you know it…

We will be griping about winter.

So wishing ya’ll a Happy Labor Day!!!!
