Spring is on its way, I am sure of it. I can smell it. I can feel it in my very fiber. And for the first time in years and years, I am looking forward to it.

Because of all the snow, I'm guessing. We didn't have that in Asheville. Much. I hear they got hit with a bit of storming, lately, though! I think it's fun when the whole city shuts down.

My family, and many people I know, would have it 80* and sunny all.the.time. If they could. Heck, not me. I love winter. Summer is my very least favorite season, but I am going to learn to appreciate summer this year if it kills me!

I saw a whole flock of crows today, cawing their little heads off. I love crows. LOVE them, and they make me so happy. I wonder what kind of omen it may have been to have a whole couple of dozen of them above my head as I came out of work? There is nothing so nifty looking as the silhouette of crows, sitting on the brances of a bare tree in the winter.

I have noticed that I notice things, such as sounds, of crows, of trains-- I stop and listen. They make me perk up my ears. I wonder do other people do that, but I think they probably go through life with blinders on, and earplugs. I would like to think they do not.

Ramble, ramble....I do apologize for my blathering, this time. I shall try to be more coherent in future!


  1. Ah, Spring is here in Madison County and even more so in Asheville. Trees budding and leafing, birds pairing off, frogs and toads hatching. . . which isn't to say that we couldn't get another snow and/or freeze.

    I too like seasons that change. The cold winter makes me SO appreciate the mild temps of Spring.

    1. Funny you wrote...right before I saw that, I had the blog page up to make sure I wrote today! Wow, no green here yet. Still dirty snow and such, but go look at the new post. It's awfully pretty today, now.
