Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 28th day of April, 2014.

Well as I write these words and look out of the window the sky is mainly overcast.

There is rain in the forecast but sunshine is on the way.

I love this time of year because it gets light early even when we do not see the brightly coloured sunrise.

Soon we can don our summer wear ….. capris and shorts ….. short sleeved tops and light sweaters …. and SANDALS.

Ooh, my feet an breathe again ….. fresh air…..

I guess it is time to finish putting away my winter gear.

I had packed away most of the coats, boots and mittens and such.

But had left a winter coat, one pair of boots and some mitts ….. because we did have a cold snap.

I will be pulling out that big blue rubbermaid and washing my summer clothing ……

So nice to start wearing bright and light clothing.

I would like to get some summer dresses this year.

I noticed at THE GAP they had some beautiful dresses.

So perhaps I will pick one up……

Also another great thing about spring…summer is the birds.

I love to watch the robins, hummingbirds, bluebirds and such.

So pretty and lovely.

I have a bird house in my backyard and although they start to build the nest the birds never seem to stay.

Not sure why.

We do have an abundance of ravens and crows.

I think they bully the smaller birds and chase them away.

I think ravens and crows have a place in the grand scheme of things but sure wish they would not chase the smaller birds.

Oh well, maybe this summer I will have a family of birds nesting in my backyard.

That would be grand.

Well better hop to it and finish getting ready as it is my early start at work today.

I hope that you have a great day.

Thank you again for reading my words it means the world to me.

Special Hello to: my friend Val …. a great baker and friend.

Always, Carol and Alvin
