What will this day bring?

Birds begin to sing,

What a cheerful sound!

Signs of Spring abound.

Daffodils in bloom,

Chase winter’s gloom.

Winter’s letting go,

My heart’s all aglow!

  1. Love anything that promises spring around the corner! 🙂 I had to take my car into the garage by 8:00 this morning. It has been very cold. I got maybe a quarter of the way there with no snow, then suddenly drove into a snowstorm all the rest of the way. It wasn’t pleasant. It wasn’t as bad coming home, and when I got here there was still almost no snow here. Just driving across town–about a 20 minute drive. Crazy.

    1. Yikes! That trip doesn’t sound fun at all. I am thankful we don’t get much snow where I live now. I don’t like snow at all. I grew up in the Midwest US and lived there most of my life and faced lots and lots of snow for many years so I am very glad to be away from it now.
      The weather here where I live now in the Pacific Northwest Oregon has been very springlike, so I am really enjoying it! 😊

      1. I actually missed my turn onto the road the garage is on. I was coming to the intersection, but with poor visibility I was paying more attention to the traffic than the street, and a big transport that had been in front of me had changed lanes a couple of blocks back then suddenly he was coming into my lane and that really took my attention away from where I was. I had to go a ways down the road to find another street to turn around on. I don’t like snow at all either and I have lived with it all my life. I don’t like being cold, either. I’m only out to drive about 3 times a week, and fortunately I have been able to find a parking place under the balcony overhang most times so haven’t had to clean snow off of my car.

        Last Friday it snowed, too. I left the church after Bible Study only to discover my car wouldn’t start. I figured it was the battery and called CAA (like AAA in the US) for a boost. But it wasn’t the battery, and the fellow did not come in a tow truck, so he had to arrange for one to come. I waited at the church for over 2 hours in total before the tow truck arrived. He had been somewhere way out of town when he got the call. By the time he got my car on the flatbed and got me into the truck (that was probably worth writing a blog about when I have difficulty getting into my own car), and we got to the garage it was probably 3:30 at least. Finally, new starter installed, I got home at 6:10–over 5 hours all together. That’s when the mechanic discovered what he thought was a problem with the caliper on one of the front brakes and that’s why I had to go back today. But it was actually a hose that transports the brake fluid to the brakes, but something had happened and it wasn’t releasing the brake after, so that had to be replaced. Another wait in a room with next to no heat. I arrived at 8:00 and got home at 9:50. Here’s hoping nothing else goes wrong for a long time. I still need new tires. Wow!
