This week has been cold, with dreary days and an icy wind. There was even a little snow, but this morning the sun is brightening up the place. It’s funny how the sunshine can make you feel like you have more energy and gives you a hopeful feeling. It’s streaming in my living room and calling for me to come out. The forecast says the temperature will rise to 68 degrees today. That is perfect for the task ahead. The winter winds left us a gift of sticks and branches scattered across the backyard. They have to be removed so we can mow the grass that is on the way! So my keyboard is going to be lonely today because I’m going outside to keep the daffodils company!
