Hard freeze? What do you mean hard freeze? Don't you know the camellias are heavy with buds ready to open? And so many spring flowers are opening up?
We've had such beautiful weather this week that it's had to face the fact that this weekend will bring much cooler weather with a hard freeze tonight and tomorrow night. After several days of sunshine, it is gray and raining here. We're hoping the rain stops before the freeze.
Lucy loves the cooler weather but she hates the rain. She goes from window to window to see if it's raining everywhere. Finding out that it is, she plops down to snooze, occasionally resting on her bee pillow to stare out at the rain.

Not much reason to get up
We are fortunate (thanks to our daughter) to have little spring birds in the window sills. They all have little slickers and Wellies. Some of them carry umbrellas. Some of them have their cups of tea. I smile at them as they sit ready for the rain.

There are many good things about a rainy day after so many days of sunshine. I might finally pay some attention to the neglected housework. More likely, I will give a token stroke to the housecleaning and read or knit. And I'll join the birds in a cup of tea. Whatever your weather, I hope you enjoy this day and the weekend.
For many of you, there is still basketball to watch. I'll likely watch a few parts of games, but with UNC losing to Wisconsin last night, my interest has waned. Good luck to you if your team is still in the running.
Today's quote is anonymous but appropriate:
"Some days, you just have to create your own sunshine."
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE
CREATE SOME SUNSHINE IN YOUR LIFE AND IN THE LIFE OF SOMEONE ELSE
