Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body.

Rather it should be to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand and the Good Book in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO what a ride!"

Good morning Maw, long time no see! Course, I think that goes for ALL of us from the 'olden' days!

Hello Peeps and Peepettes!!! I hope you are all doing well. Life here in the Mitten State is getting brighter each and every day with the arrival of Spring.

Take a minute and let us know what's going on in your neck of the woods this season! Love to all! wub.gif

1. What has your weather been like lately? Like a good portion of winter, a lot like Dante's Inferno.....hot and ugly. Now, last two days have been more enjoyable in the 40's and 50's with rain and clouds.

2. Have you seen any "Spring" flowers in bloom yet? Which is your favorite? Many came up 4-6 weeks early due to the weather, and died from a heavy frost/freeze when we returned to 'normal' weather for a few days back in late March. I like them all, but in their proper time haha!

3. If you could spend some time in Spring in another US state, which state would it be and why?
Well, son is in Colorado in the mountains, and got 11 inches of snow this week, winner in my book.

4. Have you experienced Spring allergies yet this year? Oh yes. Sudefed and Zyrtec to the rescue haha!

5. What do you like about Spring? The blooming plants and trees, the opportunity to let some fresh air circulate through the house.

6. What do you dislike about Spring? Early heat and humidity. That snow season comes to an end.

7. On your own timetable, when does Summer arrive? (Example, Memorial Day weekend.)
That is a good date, end of May/early June.

8. Do you have any fun Summer plans? Well, headed back to CO to see son end of May. Have plans to catch the full eclipse in August!

9. Have you went to bed with your windows open yet? Yep.

10. Please post a recent picture of you. I miss seeing you!!! Here's Maw, Paw, and our littlest chitlin on Easter. That is awesome! I don't have one available at the moment, I'll search and post one later.
