Reminders of summer
Reminders like this are needed this year. At least for me. I'm getting awfully tired of cool temperatures. I know we may even get another snow storm...we've certainly had a few in April over the years. Friends have arrived back from winter homes in Mexico and Florida, Texas or Arizona, sometimes even island holiday destinations to find themselves wading through a foot or more of snow.
I remember one winter when the boys were young and we had gone to Pensacola for a stay. We drove up to our lane in shorts and sandals to be greeted by three feet of snow blocking access to our home. My husband ran up the driveway to get boots and jacket and the tractor to plow a pathway to the house. Funny to think about that so long ago, but it stuck in all our memories.
Maybe we'll get a break this spring and winter's last gasp will be gentle and spring will arrive with hummingbirds and warm breezes before too long. Reminders of winter well behind us.
Crossing my fingers and wishing you a warm spring-like day!
