Spring is here

It was a warm, sunny day so Denis and I went to the Grove and Farmer’s Market.  I always go to Sur La Table there and this time I bought some white balsamic vinegar and a bottle of vanilla. We came home and sat out on the patio. I felt guilty enjoying the weather in my back yard when so many in the south have no home or back yard to go to any more. Those tornadoes put my fear of earthquakes in perspective. My fear of spiders, however, has not diminished.

Something landed on me outside. At first and I thought it was a spider so there was a momentary panic.  But then Denis (my hero!) put it on his hand to show me it was a ladybug, so spring is here.  There were other signs of spring, too.  Let’s see…there was the Easter snake I almost stepped on. The squirrels are hanging around my plum tree, just waiting. And the gophers ate my parsley. And there was a HUGE, scary spider in my closet today – he was doing chin-ups on one of my hangers. Spring is definitely here.

    Good morning…love the lucky lady bug to start my day. I live in the Midwest and I am the last person to go to the basement in a tornado warning…my husband and I are always the people standing on the front porch looking for it! After the sad destruction in the South and the loss of lives I will now be a basement dweller. I grew up with tornadoes so we know that more times then not nothing happens and it has made us feel untouchable and unafraid. But with the weather we have had lately all across the world…I am afraid. I hope everyone that can will text the Red Cross with a $10 donation to those in the South.

    I think it is time to make things in our lives right because we may all be meeting at the Pearly Gates sooner than we think.

    Thank you for you fun updates Jenny and I still think of you EVERY time I go to Walgreens!!

    Aw Jenny, I’ve always heard that ladybugs bring luck, so of course I googled and it’s true. Take a look what I found…
