Friday Photos: Spring is in the Air!

Happy Spring!  I hope that spring is (finally!) coming your way.  When I was in South Dakota last week, it was mighty cold; however on my way out of town, I heard that it was supposed to get warmer (Silver Lining). Moving to California from the Midwest, I never imagined that there would be seasonal changes. I couldn’t have been more wrong! While seasonal changes are not as pronounced as they were in Midwest (e.g., no longer to I look at piles of grey snow wishing them away!), they are just as beautiful. Wishing you a bounty of beauty as the buds begin to bloom!

Even Cake decorating is colorful!

Suddenly Seven is always reading. A tent is a particularly cozy place to read, don’tcha think?

    I love the photo of SS reading Star Wars. A girl after my own heart! Happiness is a good book and nice comfortable place to read it. It looks like she has her own tented space. I love it!

    Happy Spring! We are having warmer temps in Omaha this past week; 71 today. The buds are beginning to appear on trees and bushes; soon to burst into blossoms. I will soon get my deck furniture cleaned and arranged so that we can enjoy the great outdoors again.
    Spring is my favorite season of the year.

    I just happened upon your blog and I love it. I was diagnosed with FBC in January of 2012. I had a single mastectomy and chemo along with herceptin for one year which I just completed 3 weeks ago. I, like you, exercised all through treatment for my physical and mental well being. I played tennis when I could and walked every day. My goal is also to run a half marathon which I hope to do on May 5. No small feat for this 54 year old. I love your sense of humor and attitude. I plan to be a loyal follower.

      All my best!
