Spring showers bring May flowers - or so the saying goes. BUT it is the end of April and we are having much more than spring "showers" - we are having sleet ........ and just north of us - snow!!
We are expecting 40 mm of rain today - for those of you who don't do metric - that converts to about 1.57 inches of rain. When I look at the conversion I have to admit it doesn't sound nearly as bad as 40 mm!!
But it is dreary - and truthfully - I have had enough of dreary!!!
I so want spring.......... with green lawns and budding plants and warmth on my body when I go out in the sunshine. I have promised baby daughter I will go out to the island and help transform a dreary mud pile in the front of their new home to some semblance of garden terrace. I am so ready to be doing that .......... better than being stuck inside cleaning - yet again!!
I was thinking maybe this dreary weather is getting to me more this year because I am sitting at home. When I am working I guess I hardly notice the weather - no time. And other than being stuck inside with antsy kids the rain doesn't normally bother me. So I will put these doldrums down to being stuck at home - in limbo - waiting for something to happen.
Easter is this weekend - time for a family dinner here at "granny's" ......... I have a purple table cloth and yellow place mats to put on the dining table. If Mother Nature won't provide spring colours I can at least make a good ole try at it !! And perhaps some spring flowers for the table will lift everyone's spirits.
And who knows - maybe ??? - over the weekend there will be time for an Easter spanking......... now that might be fun.........
