VikLit had the idea for this Friday blog that celebrates the small things that often go unnoticed. I often read the posts and reflect that I had never noticed the things baing mentioned. Once I see what they are, I find myself celebrating, too.
Join us! Details are at the end of this post.
Today is the first full day of spring. We all remember spring, don't we? Especially after such a dreadful winter as this has been?
The season of sprouting flowers, of flotillas of Canada geese and songbirds returning home... I heard birds outside my window after the silence of winter, and I smiled.
Down south (in the US) the magnolias and azaleas are beginning to bloom. I remember strolling beneath Spanish moss-festooned branches and filling my sight with magenta azaleas.
I am also celebrating morning tea. Usually slightly sweetened and well-milked. I drink two or three cups each morning. It's especially good when I remember to drink it while it is hot.
What else? the cold is easing up, but I can still enjoy a fire. There is something about watching flames that speaks of comfort and celebration. It does help if you are not cursed with the ability to put out any fire you encounter, even if it is begun with gasoline and dry pitch pine. I have several acquaintances with that ability.
And another celebration - all of you . It is good to read what is posted and see smiles through your eyes.
