Took this picture as we headed over to the ball field to watch Jesse play last evening.
It is definitely spring in my corner of the world! The pear trees are all in full bloom, along with the tulip trees and buttercups. It won't be long until God's green earth will burst forth with many colors. This is such a beautiful time of the year and so welcome after the hard winter we all had.
Today I will take my new vacuum out of the box (I know, had it 3 days and haven't even gotten the box open) and put it together, and if the mood strikes me, I may even use it.
Also, I think it is time to get the spring/summer clothes out of storage and put the heavy winter ones inside. We will have a few more cool days, but no more snow - we hope. The winter clothes, coats, jackets, etc., take up so much room in the closet, it is hard to even see what you want to wear. Also there will be things to take to the Goodwill boxes. Jim has already cleaned the closet he uses and we have taken several bags already.....can't let him get ahead of me for long!
Jim has a patch of turnip greens, collard greens and kale that is ready to be picked. He said if it wasn't raining this morning, he would pick some and we could cook for supper tonight. I know, this is a southern thing, but unless you have eaten any, you don't know what you are missing. A good onion, cornbread and sliced tomatoes....yummmmmmmm.
There was an article written yesterday about my oldest granddaughter. She has the world at her feet, and we just pray she will continue to excel. It is a long article, so I won't post it here, but if you want to read, here is the link:
