SPRING Forward


I am finally adapting to the time change from March 8th. I was feeling out of my element for a few days. The skies remained bright, but the clock was steadily ticking. The new time change even caused me to prepare dinner a little later than normal (Okay, so maybe I am using this as an excuse, but it didn't hurt to try).

I love Spring. It's so fresh. So tasty and relaxing. The temperature is perfect. The outdoors are inviting. And the skies are full of new life as birds return to the area just in time for the comforting weather. Go here to find out what birds are coming to your area and when.


These babies are going to need a little TLC.

Kaden and I enjoyed an uneventful afternoon outdoors. I am always so overwhelmed with cleaning the inside of the house, so I decided I would start with the outside first. I was not nearly as successful as I had hoped to be. I was sidetracked by racking the leaves out of the flower bed. Boy are they going to need lots of work to look appealing. There are more weeds than flowers. Oh well, I have two thumbs. I never said they were green.


Trees in the front yard and a near-by field.

It felt good to get out of the house and experience the gifts of nature. I heard children playing, cars passing, and trees swaying. It was all music to my ears.

Kaden rode his bicycle. He said he can no longer pedal because he needs some oil (that'll teach him to put it away the next time it rains). I just thinks he wanted to demonstrate his mechanical skills as usual. Luckily, I was able to convince him he didn't need oil right at that moment. I'm sure this will come-up again tomorrow. I'm prepared to distract him again. From the looks of this video, it seems he had no problem pedaling:

Note how Kaden states, "This is me speeding!" at the end. So much for needing oil.



I'll leave you with this:

ECCLESIASTES 3.1-8

1 To everything there is a season,
A time for every purpose under heaven:

2 A time to be born, And a time to die;
A time to plant, And a time to pluck up what is planted;

3 A time to kill, And a time to heal;
A time to break down, And a time to build up;

4 A time to weep, And a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, And a time to dance;

5 A time to cast away stones, And a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing;

6 A time to gain, And a time to lose;
A time to keep, And a time to throw away;

7 A time to tear, And a time to sew;
A time to keep silence, And a time to speak;

8 A time to love, And a time to hate;
A time of war, And a time of peace.


Welcome Spring. I look forward to the changes you are scheduled to bring.
