scratch that …

scratch the whole “it’s spring and the sun is out” post.  because it is definitely not out.  in fact, saturday evening yielded a snow so white, one would think it was january.  promtply after we {grudgingly} left the warmth of our bed on Sunday morning, Erik’s dad sent him a message from South Dakota {a place normally colder than “sunny” California} saying he was drinking coffee, outside, in his shorts.  well, our morning included coffee, but nothing outside or in shorts. 

while the snow has since melted, the clouds are now leaking a less frozen type of precipitation.  rain.  accompanied by a little thunder.  and lot’s of wind.  {by “wind”, I mean, gusts strong enough to rip branches from their trunks and throw trees against power lines}.  you know, just a normal MAY.  {note strong sarcastic emphasis} 

to add a little comedy to the situation, the thunder rolled so loud during the sermon at church on sunday, that the pastor stopped mid-sentence, knowing that he wouldn’t be heard over the roar.  God made His presence known!

spring into summer {note: this post is very un-exciting, please accept my apologies}

Easter often seems to mark the beginning of spring {at least for those of us in Northern California}.  It always falls around the time when the sun shows it’s face for more than a 24 hour period of time.  Thus, I consider it, the beginning of spring.  {It’s quite simple, really}  And other than the major reason why Easter is such a fantastic day to celebrate {i.e. Jesus, coming, living, and dying for my weak, dirty, little-self – thank the LORD for His everlasting love! – in case you were wondering}, the extra bit of sunshine is a reason worth having a BBQ and picking some flowers. 


Aaaannndddd, that’s all I have  … consider my writing creativity temporarily out of commission.  Not sure why, I just don’t have anything to say other than, “oh, hey, don’t my husband and I look cute, frolicking in the fields?” Lame, I know.

And as my dear friend’s from looney tunes used to say {and I’m sure they still say it in the homes of those that actually have T.V.’s … i.e. not my home}

“That’s All Folks!”
{for now}
