This or That Thursday: The Flora and Fauna eDition


 I was good with the long, drawn out drama this winter had become through the month of March.

I could wait a while longer for outdoor work to commence.

I have serious issues with a certain rooster who crows so early in the morning
that the idea of sleeping with the windows open, once the nights stay warm,
has been rendered a very bad idea anyways.

But mid April is here, along with a day full of freezing rain warnings
and I'd prefer spring to start any time now. Thank you very much.

I have a small confession to make.

I cheated winter this year. 

We escaped to warmer climes for a week,
and I suppose for that, this is the penance I must pay or
else my once a decade winter trip was timed perfectly.

Don't feel guilty at all -- I'm sure it was a well-deserved break. How beautiful.

And I have to say I'm a bit jealous that you got to meet "B" in person. She's such a lovely soul. Maybe someday I'll have the same pleasure. xo

Oh I feel for you! We are in the 80s already, and it is now that I start to feel badly for those still freezing. I hope spring shows soon. I'm glad you cheated winter a bit. Hopefully that will keep you going while waiting for warm weather.

Cuba? And you didn't share until now? This may be why you are weather jinxed ;)

A place I'd love to visit but I think us Americans still can't (legally) travel there...
