Spring Fever Anyone??

Does anyone else have spring fever?? We've had the most beautiful weather the past few days that I'm ready, no, more then ready for spring! The snow is melting, the mud is appearing, the load limit signs have been hung with care, the sap is boiling into maple syrup, the bunnies are growing, the chickens are finally laying more eggs!! YEAH.... spring is in the air!

Everything is ready for warmer weather! Audrey and I went to Connecticut this past Sunday to pick up two New Zealand White rabbits (does) and all the way down we could see 'spring' arriving! We were in Waterbury and they have GREEN grass!! HURRAY! I know, for those of you who live in warmer climates, you may think I'm a bit nutty..... but it has been a LONG time for us who have been seeing white ground everywhere!

Today the temperature is 42* and there is a bit of cool breeze, but the sun is shining absolutely beautiful!! God's creation is awakening and shouting for joy all around us!

Next sign on spring..... potato salad and veggies & meat on the grill!! (Can't hardly wait!)

Oh, now my mouth is watering for a nice juicy grilled steak on the barbie. Yup, spring is on it's way. -Sandy

You should see the Texas bluebonnets in bloom! We drove to Houston and back for the library conference, and the flowers were gorgeous this year.

(Picture, if you will, fields of flowers, people pulled over to the side of the road, and everyone snapping photos of their children and dogs in a sea of bluebonnets...)

Oh, and you KNOW you make me nervous when you talk about buying rabbits AND "meat on the grill" in the same post...
