It seems that everywhere I turn, long-time journal writers are converting to blog format. It seems like a good idea, but I just cannot commit to putting my writing exclusively on someone else's server.
But, blogs are a fine idea, no question. So, to put a foot in both worlds I have started up a blog that links back to this site and my entries. It can be found at: http://maggieturner.wordpress.com.
The sun is shining today, as predicted. The snow continues to melt. My daily walk has changed from snow underfoot to slippery mud. The surface layers of soil have thawed, but the frost still holds a solid grip just below the surface. In the low areas my boots sink inches into the mud, hit the frozen layers and release with great sucking noises at each step.
Two signs of spring surrounded me when I walked out the door this morning; bird song and the smell of earth warming in the sun.
An altogether quiet and uneventful day.
