Finally a Spring Day

001002003Yesterday must surely have been the first real day of spring, it was warm and the sun was shining. Linda is packing for our move and yesterday she was in the garage working. I decided it would be wise to move the Mini out of her way! I backed out onto the driveway and realized I couldn’t help myself, I had to keep going. I drove about 5 klms to the community mail box and and then back home again. I would have liked to have gone further but still having problems with my dizziness didn’t want to risk it. However, it is quite amazing what the first warm rays of sunshine can do for a person’s well being. I was feeling so good after my drive in the Mini that I took my dog Angel for a walk. I actually had to undo my jacket, I was so warm, Wow!!!haven’t experienced that feeling for ages. The road was clear just a little water running in places. The snow banks are still huge as you can see from the photos of the Mini in the driveway, but spring has definitely arrived. As I walked with Angel I listened to hundreds of birds calling to one another from the tree tops. Watched them soar across the beautiful clear blue sky, heard the bubbling of the rivers as they carried away the winter snow. It was a day to be thankful and to be alive,  a wonderful renewal of life and nature. It will be a while before we have green grass but at least we are on our way at last. One tends to forget how harsh a winter we just came through on a day like this.

God Bless and keep reading.

PS — I just enlarged the photo of the rear of the Mini!!! Just in case you are thinking that’s Linda’s bare bum in front of the car, its not, she is wearing flesh coloured pants !!!!!!
