Say Goodbye To Miss April

April 30, 2012

It's a gorgeous morning here in my little part of New England.  The sun is shining, the wind is gone, and it's not too cool.  The temp is at 48 degrees F and headed for 68 degrees.  Mind you, the weather forecaster has just announced that there is currently a freeze warning for my area.  I'm wondering at what point between 48 and 68 degrees the freeze will begin.  (Whatever this forecaster is drinking, I want some too!)

The news this morning is so sad.  A van with four adults and three small children went off the roadway in New York and plunged about 60 feet.  There were no survivors.  So far, no one is sure how this happened.  I guess this is one of the reasons that I don't watch the news very often.  There is so much sadness and grief.

Well folks, say goodbye to April.  She was cool and pretty, and brought beautiful colors and green leaves to all our trees.  Here's a photo that I took this morning on my way home from work.  I figured I had better get at least one photo before all the pink turns to green.

These gorgeous flowering trees are everywhere here.  All shades of pink, rose and white.  Mix all that in with the gorgeous spring green on the other trees, and we have some pretty awesome scenery.  Plus, the lilacs are in bloom and oh my, they smell so good!!!

Last night, I worked a bit on our May collab kit.  Can't tell you much about it yet, it's too soon.  Another week, and we'll start posting it.  Now I think I'll refresh my coffee cup, and try to figure out how to move a photo in my text messages (on my smart phone) to my photo gallery. 

This phone and I are having some serious issues.  It has absolutely no thought of making life easy for me.  To make matters worse, it does not get service everywhere so I can't always use it for making calls.  I think it's time to shop around for a "not so smart" phone and then get busy planning that "smash the phone" party.

That's all my news for this morning.  Now it's time to do a few things around here.  Groan, groan.  Housework and my smart phone are sharing the top spot on my "Worst things" list.  I don't like either of them, and they don't like me.  On that note, I shall take my leave.  Till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Edna B.

What a great mail with the letter to God. There still is kindness in the world!
Have to post quick now, I am completely out of schedule, cause we went out first.
Have a great day

I read about that family and saw the photo of the van. So sad, the photo is so shocking! I agree about how negative the news is, I like those happy stories that my news guy calls the “fluff” stories. (Jaded much, David?) Still, what makes news news is usually that it’s not good. Keep in mind that the best news is all that good stuff isn’t considered “news.” That makes the good stuff everyday stuff, right? My kind of boring!
Bye April, but I still liked March better this year!

At least housework gives the expected results… :)

Have a wonderful rest of Monday!

Hugs, Nani

Loved the photos of the trees. Maybe soon I will have time to use the camera. We're closer and closer each day.
