Mountain Monday Lamentations

Spring, Oh Spring, where hast thou gone? You came so beautifully into my existence, breathing hope of new life into my days. Then you were gone, felled by this cold white crap!

Ah yes, it has snowed and snowed these last few days, and I just heard, it is going to do it again, TWICE more this week.




Sorry for the whining, I just can't help myself. With those lovely days holding so much promise just a week ago, I am finding it difficult to rediscover my winter mojo.
At least it was purty for you bloggity peeps out there today!















Ms. Tenacious herself, hanging on still. I think I shall be sad the Monday I return and she has chosen to let go.



And yet, in spite of the cold temperatures, Spring cannot be completely banished. Her harbingers continue to flourish even in the grip of a lingering winter. Green leaves are growing on the bushes!



A bluebird, (oh please, if it is the bluebird of happiness, let it be bringing spring back!) looking for good nesting materials with her mate.



I had all three granddaughter this weekend. Of course I had to have Baby record some of their cuteness for you.

Squid


June Bug


The Pea


Little Man, who was strangely cooperative for some pictures. He has his good moments and he is such a handsome little devil!

I refuse to pull out my winter mojo. Again. I'm actually really sick of the snow this year and I never say that and really mean it. It's time for spring. Right now. Oh, I really like the bluebird picture.

I'm sorry about the snow. I think I would be going crazy, too. I'm so ready for the warm weather to stick around. I can't complain, it will be 70 here today. Hop in the car...you can be here by, uh, tomorrow? =)
