It’s Spring. I’m Certain of It.

Gardening

It’s supposed to be 45 all week.  People are talking about a 40 inch snowfall on March 7 because some Indian guy who correctly predicted the last 8 major snowfalls said we are having one.  I say hogwash.  I hear birds singing in the morning.  The buds are swelling ever so slightly on the trees.  Sparrows (dratted birds…it couldn’t be bluebirds right!?!) have decided to nest in the box in my front island and are doing so in earnest.  They’ve been working on it for a while but today I saw papa sparrow feeding his bride.  A sure sign of babies to come.  I’ve spoken to Mother Nature.  I’ve told her I’ll have none of it (snow I mean) any more.  She understood completely.  (Actually, I begged…)

To celebrate Spring I went shopping at Dan’s and purchased the long awaited new camera.  No more excuses for lousy pictures.  I got the Olympus E-PL1.  I got it in a pretty slate blue.  I got the 14-42 lens.  And the Zuiko 40-150 mm lens and adapter.  And while I was at it, I signed up for a couple of their classes.  I’d STILL like to sign up for digital journaling.  And they are doing a field trip to Eastern Penitentiary in Philadelphia which looks fabulous another to Longwood Gardens in July that sounds like my cuppa tea.  So I’ve got some things to think about.   Now if the battery would charge up I’d be in great shape…!

We’re just around the corner from the furniture arrival…YES!  Spring is a happy time…and I’m ready for it.
