Punked by Mother Nature!

Remember my whole January thaw, mother natures joke, not going to fall for it again, post. Well she got a little trickier this year. She gave us quite a few weeks of nice weather, she was even kind enough to melt almost all the snow out of our yard.  On Friday when I posted my signs of spring post I really believed that we were going to get an early spring.  I was very excited and very happy that spring was on the way.

Woke up this morning to several inches of snow. 


Okay, Mother Nature, Ha ha ha you got me. 

I've been punked by Mother Nature.

Here, the robin is the harbinger of spring. The cute, happy bird shows up, hops around, builds nests, and signals the coming of spring. The 8 months I was in Utah, I learned that even the robin lies! I saw too many birds hopping along snow covered lawns, chirping, singing, and signaling a sprig thaw that never came (I think that year we had snow in June!).

DOn't worry... spring will come, someday.

It is BEAUTIFUL! I love the snow. It really just makes me smile to look out and see it. I hope you are feeling better today!

I'm not speaking to mother nature right now. I think we deserve chocolate and flowers for her tricky behavior. Winter is 99%horrid! Blah!

p.s. I posted blessing #5 today.

My sleep has been ruined the last 2 nights because the window is too light from the reflection from the snow. Arg. I need thick curtains. Velvet, maybe?
