Green Grass

It has been raining since early this morning. The temperature is hovering around 5C, and has been all day. A glance out the kitchen window provides a welcome sight, the grass is turning green!

It has been a very dreary day out there; a good day to stay cozy and warm inside Mist Cottage. Warmer weather will arrived next week, and that is when the outdoors will begin to hold real appeal.

The genealogy book is slowly taking shape. Creating the layout for the tables and images is extremely time consuming. There are twelve children for whom there are documents and family photos, and at present the work is slowly slogging through the second child; ten more to go when this segment is done.

Mom called this morning on FaceTime, it was delightful to hear from her. We chatted for quite a while, about this and that. It turned out that she did not mean to place the call, it happened by mistake when the wrong button was clicked. She was as surprised to see me as I was to see her! 🙂

Terra and Lares had a miserable common cold when they visited on Sunday, and now I have a miserable common cold. They may have left it here, but then again, the frequent visits to doctor’s offices over the last few weeks might have been the culprit, it is a place where sick people hang out. It began with a headache and moved right into the sinuses. Hopefully it will be short lived.

Funny, although there is no snow, early spring seems to be dragging on. It rained and/or snowed most of March and April has been very dreary so far. A little sunshine wouldn’t go amiss!

    We may be sending you some snow, Maggie. Our rain suddenly changed over to snow about 7PM. We now have an inch or two on the grass, though our warm sidewalks are merely wet.

    At this point, we do have crocuses that are blooming, while the hyacinths and tulips of the neighborhood are about 4 to 6 inches tall but no flowers, yet.

    Sorry to hear about everyone’s colds. Get well soon.

  2. No snow here this morning Teri! None last night that I know of, it might have snowed during the night and melted again before light this morning, which would be OK by me!

    Crocuses blooming, how wonderful! Nothing blooming here, just tinges of green in the grass, which is still predominantly brown.

    My cold is worse today, Terra and Lares are over theirs, and Attila hasn’t got it, yet, fingers crossed he doesn’t! I awoke this morning with one eye “glued” shut, I will be glad when this thing runs its course.

  3. I spoke too soon Teri, it is snowing out there right now! 9:33 a.m. April 7, 2016
