Enough Already! It's Spring!


This is what spring looks like in sunny California. This just hit us last week, followed by a lot of rain. So much for my return to the gym. :( I have a new appreciation for Daffodils, they bloomed and survived 2ft of snow, heavy rain and hail. The daffodils are under the pile of snow (bottom left in pic) and my lilac tree has yelled "uncle" for the last time. The wet stuff finally stopped today, but will return Tuesday. Dave managed to get tons of flowers planted today because the sun will be here Wednesday. I have been remiss in my blogging due to a new toy, picture software! I'm learning right now, but someday I hope to create beautiful digital art. My muse TJ has helped me get started, she's a very special lady! http://tjexpressions.blogspot.com/ I was also thinking about entering a red robin photo challenge, yet another way to be a TJ wannabe. http://roundrobinphoto.blogspot.com/

I got to talk on the phone with Tara http://taradawn80.blogspot.com/ and what a great gal! I was nervous because of my speech being slurred. She was a great listener! Thanks for everything Tara! A big shout out and thanks for my angel tag by Nikki at http://bedazzzled1.blogspot.com/. :) What a great spirit she has! If you enjoy beautiful artwork, you must go visit Maryanne at http://insidethegildedcage.blogspot.com/. Her work is awesome and she will make you laugh!

I chopped my hair off, got the toes trimmed and we even got our taxes done. No gym yet, but soon I hope. Won't mow those legs until I see sun, it's my winter coat. I still have not seen my precious grandson since he was 3 weeks old, he will be three months on Wednesday. I am healing, but my heart still aches. Someday my daughter will grow up to realize he needs me in his life. My lips to God's ears:) Happy 3mos my little man!

California again is getting more snow than Montana. Wow! I do hope you get to see your little grandson more and that your daughter realizes how much both he and you and her are missing out not creating this bond.

I absolutely loved talking to you, and hearing your voice. Our talk carried me throughout the week with feelings of excitement and comfort and pure bliss...thank you!
I only wish that I would have had more time since our conversation to write about you...you continue to inspire me so much!
I will write soon. Let me know when good times to call are!
Lots of love,
TD

I remember being surprised when my babies were small that my mother didn't really care if she saw them. She never wrote to ask how they were and never called because long-distance calls were too expensive. She had raised five children and pretty much was done with that!! She was happy t see them when we visited, but when we left, it was done.

I cannot think of ANYONE who would not benefit from having you in his or her life. You inspire, delight, and amaze all of us. You are joy personified.

Tammy,

You are such a beautiful, sweet, loving and special soul. Your daughter will come around. The best thing that can happen to our kids to teach them the value of US, their parents, is to have them become parents themselves!

Thank-you so much for all your kind words regarding my artwork:):)

I am so honored to be included in this post with these other gifted people!Thank-you!

I do hope the weather improves soon for you. As dramatically beautiful as your picture is, it certainly made me shiver! And yes, Viva those hardy daffodils!

Do join the Round Robin by the way... It's such fun, although I haven't participated in a while.

Tammy~I just can't believe CA has snow and PA has daffodils, but it's true! Great interpretation of the writiters club photo/art...I can visualize it. Gotta check that club out. Blessings, Sassy ;-)
PS. Love how you do the music thing and flicker montague; I need a workshop or a tutor! ;-)

Tammy, my prayers that you get to hold your grandson soon.
Hugs,

This is a great entry....I have been talking a lot lately about how we should point our blogs to other great blogs (as you know, I usually try to do this). I usually think of the blogosphere like a little family of people who might be able to make the world a better place. Anyway...there was just so much to look at in this entry...these are my favorite type of entries by you.

P.S. I like that song by Lifehouse that is playing. I have never heard of them before.

P.P.S. I hope that your health is doing as well as can be.

Someday your daughter will realize that not only her son but SHE needs you in her life...I just wish she'd come to her senses. You are terrific, and you inspire everyone who reads you.
