Hello Friend


I have a nice drive to work. I am lucky. We drive past farms, ponds, woods, quiet towns. I have been missing the herons and egrets that normally frequent a pond we pass. I have been missing the greens and the buds that peek out in spring. I have been missing the runners and the walkers with their dogs. But, this morning I saw an old friend. Mr. Sun. He was out in full force this morning and then again on my way home. I was able to take my coat off and didn't have to warm up my car before leaving school. My car said it was 46 degrees outside. 46! I have missed these temps. Now all I need is a 60 degree day to make it official. March 20th can come, but until it hits 60 I don't feel like spring has really arrived. Bring on the sunshine!

Here is my morning sun.

Say hello to my afternoon sun.

  1. Reading this slice makes me happy! 46 is divine! I wrote about a similar topic in my blog post today too! I'm so glad you got to reconvene with your old friend Mr. Sun today :).

  3. The sun can make all the difference in the world. We are still snow covered and endured below zero temps this week. 46 degrees sounds pretty darn good.

  4. Your pictures are beautiful! I enjoyed saying hello to your old friend today myself! It was wonderful to be able to stand outside without shivering, not to have to brace yourself as you opened the door. I'm looking forward to spring...temperatures, green, birds...not calendar dates. :)

  5. We had a fifty degree day here today. The kids and I ended the day at afternoon recess and it was glorious.

  6. It's amazing how much the sun can brighten my mood! I even did my chores without putting on my winter gear! The lambs were even feeling great. They were running and leaping in the air, playing while their moms were busy eating their supper of grain. :)
