A gentle reminder

This morning Sprite called out, "Mom! Look at that bird!  It's different!"

We typically only get magpies here, so I hurried over to see if it was the pretty little blue birds we'll sometimes get.

Nope.  It was our first robin of spring!  And it has been like spring today.  The sun is out, it's nearly 60 degrees, we have the door open as well as some windows.  Shoot, our ghetto back yard is even sporting some green weeds.  (Note, it's not grass. The dog pee just doesn't allow for that.)

I remembered seeing this little red-breasted beauty last year about this time.  And then I also remembered this happening an entire month later.

Blogging is a good way to keep memories fresh.  And looking back at the crazy weather changes is a gentle reminder to me to not put away all the winter clothes yet.

Because it's just a matter of time right now as to when it will snow.  There is no if.

For now, we'll enjoy our picnics outside.
