Don't let these photos of daffodils lead you to believe that spring has been staying around this week. Yesterday I saw snow...yep. That is a first for my daughter's birthday, SNOW. Poor Frodo was shivering while we were outside, even he cannot believe this cold spring. However, another warm up is in the forecast and I'm focusing on the flowers and the trees that are welcoming the long daylight hours by sprouting blooming and greening up my views.
We've chosen paint colors for the main level and early May will be the 'big job'. I'm the prep gal and the cleaner upper gal. Luckily my husband will paint as long as there is music playing, sounds like a match made in heaven. I have high hopes that we can finish in a week, but if not that's okay.
Yesterday we drove to our daughter's town to have a celebratory birthday dinner with her. In the fall, she and her soon to be husband will be moving to the west coast for his post doc. I will miss her but I'm happy they have this wonderful opportunity. Daily I repeat positive affirmations, focus on the here and now, and already have some future travel plans to visit them in the next year.
When we were first married, I moved to Texas with my husband and lived there two years far far away from my family in PA. The internet was not invented then and neither were cell phones. I was supposed to call my mother weekly but I called her daily and my phone bills were enormous. So I'm thankful for technology and the connections we will have while they are far away.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
