It's that time of year...


Spring is okay. Not my favorite season of the year, but I do enjoy watching the grass turn green, the leaves bud, the flowers bloom. I enjoy that I don't have to run the heat any longer, and I can enjoy a month or two of low electricity costs.

I don't enjoy the rain--well, I enjoy the rain--what I don't enjoy is the warm/cold/humid/warm/cold/humid roller coaster that is Texas spring weather. It wreaks havoc on my poor knees.

I don't enjoy the mud that comes from all the rain that my big dogs are determined to bring into the house.

I don't enjoy the sticking doors from the humidity. I don't enjoy my kids whining that it's hot when really it's just humid and how many times do I have to tell them it's *NOT* hot, it's just humid and to go take some clothes off because I am *NOT* turning on the A/C just yet.

I'm really not crabby, it just seems like it. ;)

On the other hand, I went to the library on Saturday and found a series of books featuring men in uniform--my very favorite kind of hero. And these guys are hot, hot, hot!

Read any good books lately?

I do notice I get a lot more mud in the house in the spring, but i love the reprieve from winter so much I don't care.

I just finished reading "Silent in the Grave" by Deanna Raybourn. Historical Sherlock-Holmes-style mystery with a tiny sliver of romance. Very impressive for a first novel, but could have used a stronger beta read to make it perfect.

My Daffodils are coming up very nicely - even with the 4-5 inches, or more, of snow we have had the last 3 days. The snow total has to be higher than 4-5 - it snows, it melts a bit, it snows, it compacts a bit ... yup, that's been the last 3 days. There is more snow predicted for today and possibly tomorrow, but then it should start looking like a clear blue sky and lots of sun.

Why are we never happy with what we have??

Love you,

What I don't like is the wind. Grrr... Does not make me want to fly a kite--mostly it just makes me not want to fix my hair :)

Hi, Regina!

Yay, for daffodils. My faves are Narcissus. My kids think they smell like urine, but I love them. All I actually have are some scraggly Irises that I haven't seen bloom yet.

I forgot about the wind, L.A. And since I tend to open my windows once it's warm enough I have a coating of West Texas dust all over.Ugh!
