It is not uncommon to look up at the high mountains early mornings in early April and see ice on the mountaintops. It is quite another to look out your own backyard and see ice on April 4. Not just in the early morning, but at 3:00 in the afternoon!!! Our normal high for the date should be in the mid-60s. Yesterday our high was 32. Mist, clouds, gray and ice.

Where is spring?
The calendar says it's here.
Where are you going Ellie?
Thought I would check the other side of the house to see if it's better there.
Look at that, would you? Where is my sunbeam?
Absent my sunbeam, I'll just settle on soft golden Ellie.
The only thing we can do about the weather is to wait for a change. It is what it is. But I can tell you I am ready for spring weather to accompany the calendar.
Today's quotes are from Marcus Aurelius:
"You have power over your mind---not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength."
"Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking."
HAVE A SAFE AND WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE!!!
