Spring's Warm Breath Brings Hope

It is Monday, but it doesn't feel like Hell on Earth today.

Finally, it feels as though Spring has arrived and isn't just teasing us with potential dates that she might drop in.

Windows are open, the wind is still and birds are singing and calling to each other. There has been a surge of green from all the snow moisture lately. In the early morning sun A. spotted the first buds on the trees and bushes out in front of the house.

A. did break the stillness when he cursed the damn English sparrow that has bullied our little Mountain Bluebird family out of the birdhouses out front. You invasive little bugger, you!

I am ditching out from work at noon to head to Denver and watch a Rockies game. I am so glad my boss honors informal comp time.

And finally, how could Monday seem dreary when you are greeted with this cuteness? LOOK AT THOSE CHEEKS.

The Delightful Little M. (nephew)

  9. Your nephew is SO adorable...

    I have to comment back to you about the truck driver comment ;)
    I know the angel you were in elementary school...
    I think it was at least 4th grade before we heard the "rhymes with duck" word... and at least high school before we were using it.
    Kindergarten is just way TOO young.

  10. Wow, is he ever CUTE. You're one lucky auntie!
