Spring has come here in the mountains. Yes, we know it is temporary. And yes, we know there will be more chilly weather. But I'm going to enjoy it while it's here. And I won't lament the chilly weather too much because I know it will have a short life. This time of year we focus a lot of discussion around the subject of open windows. I love having the windows open. Unfortunately both my husband and I have spring allergies so open windows mean increasing allergy meds (which we both hate) or dealing with runny noses and sneezes (which we both hate). Or both (which we both hate even more). So we will likely tolerate the pollen outdoors but keep it out of the house as much as possible.
Lucy loves being outdoors in all sorts of weather with the exception of rain. But she also loves relaxing inside. She is still loving her pillows and rearranges them all the time. Thank goodness everything has removable washable covers.
Taking advantage of three pillows. Another pillow is unseen at her rear.
Yes, she has pillows everywhere except under her head.
Her ear provides a great sleeping mask.
Daylight Savings Time arrives this weekend for most of our country and Spring officially arrives the following weekend. My oldest surviving aunt hates daylight time and laments the fact that the number of DST days has substantially increased. I suppress a laugh every time we talk about it because she invariably says, "I hate it! I hate it! I hate it!" Always three times in a row. And said with great disgust. And when we switch back to standard time, she says, "I'm so glad to see that daylight time gone. I hate it! I hate it! I hate it!" Well, hate it thrice or not Aunt Ruby, it's coming this weekend.
Today's quote comes from British poet, essayist, and critic, Samuel Johnson. He could be speaking of our current Presidential campaign.
"When once the forms of civility are violated, there remains little hope of return to kindness or decency."
I sincerely hope he is wrong and that we can indeed return to kindness and decency.
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE
AND A WONDERFUL WEEK TO COME
SPEAK KIND WORDS
