peach blossums

Between work and kids and school activities, not much day is left open for my getting to play on my pc. I enjoyed this weekends weather so much. It felt like late spring and felt too good to stay indoors. Even the grass invited me to crank up the mower and give it a trim. All the trees have buds all over them and the peach tree is in full bloom. It was so invigorating to spend all that time outside after being cooped up in the house during all the cold weather. Face it folks----SPRING is really a very great time of the year-a fantastic season of blooms and fresh life in old dead looking things. It is hard not to have a fresh "spring" in your step and outlook this time of year. Now I guess I'll go and close the windows and turn on the heaters-supposed to be 36 tonight---boo hoo.

Texas weather

Nothing beats living in Texas- nowhere else feels like home to me. Wide open spaces, and plenty of friendly faces, greet you every where you look. WELL-some are friendly and some honestly are quite scary, but you know what I mean. Texas has it all-including the most confusing weather you could imagine. Freezing cold one day and shorts weather the next day. On any given day-as I travel around the area as I work- I encounter nature at its finest. From delightful deer to crazy wild hogs, I never know what to expect. This morning I arrived at work all bright eyed and bushy tailed, ready for another Monday to unfold, feeling rather good. As I unlocked the garage at 630 AM, a little bird flew out and whacked me in the head. Which in turn made me dump my whole cup of hot coffee all over my front side!! I then backed up abruptly and bumped into a coworker who dumped his coffee cup all over my backside!!
Needless to say-I had all the coffee I could possibly want, and the day continued to be a typical Monday. Oh well-guess it could have been worse.
