Good Morning Soulies!

March 19 was officially the last day of winter. And March 20 was the beginning of Spring!

Or so the calendar says….

I am not entirely convinced. The reason for my uncertainty is simple.

The weather.

I don’t know where everyone else lives but as a resident of Arkansas, I am continually surprised every morning I wake up. One day it will be warm and sunny, a nice 70+ degrees.

And the next, we are facing freezing rain and the chance of snow.

Shorts one day, heavy coats the next. It is enough to make your head spin. It does mine anyway.

And yet, despite the changes in weather, the grass is beginning to go from brown and drab to bright and green. Trees are starting to bud out and flowers are blooming.

My husband and one of our daughters even planted a garden.

Corn, squash, okra, and cucumbers.

YUM!

Of course that was before the TONS of rain we received and the cold snap which followed. One that will most likely kill everything they planted. But I guess they jumped the gun.

Should have known better. We live in Arkansas after all. LOL!

Oh well, off to buy more seeds… Or at least they will when it warms up. And stays warm. Not sure when that will be but I can’t wait for it.

I am beyond ready for sunny days, light breezes, picnics in the park, playing baseball, riding bikes, and soaking up the sun.

So until then, I will take the days as they come. Warm, cold, dry, rainy. Whatever it brings I will embrace it, knowing that with each passing day, we are one more day closer to that sweet special time when the birds are singing and life seems to start anew.

Thanks for stopping by to read my post. I hope the weather is better where you are.

    I am also in Arkansas, and know exactly what you are saying.

  2. I live in New Orleans, and I know what you mean about the weather. We go from hot to cold in a day. Today, it’s in the 70s. tonight, in the 40s. I’m also worried about my garden!
