Where Is Spring Hiding?

April 6, 2016

Good morning.  Goodness, the sun is shining, but it is only 22F degrees outside.  I think we're supposed to get up into the high 30's later today.  Somehow I don't feel very Springy right now.  My flowers aren't so happy about it either. 

Well, later this morning, Eddie, Pogo and I will be setting out to go visit with Aunt Lucy.  She and my uncle Freddie were married in the early to mid 40's. I remember seeing a photo of them - Lucy was all dressed up and Freddie was wearing his Army uniform.  They were so young and in love.  Hmmm, memories.

My friend Andrea asked me why Pogo doesn't get fat from all the fancy foods that he eats.  To be honest, I don't know.  However, he never overeats.  He eats what he wants and leaves the rest of the food on his plate.  Also, he's very active at times.  Pogo will be ten years old this month, but he acts like he is still a puppy. 

Somehow that doesn't work as well for me.  Each of my last doctor visits has shown me losing a bit of weight.  Two pounds, three pounds, one pound and this last visit was another two and a half pounds.  The only difference I can see though is that my right arm is a bit thinner than my left arm.  It's just not fair!!!

I'm watching the Weather Channel, and they say we have more snow coming next weekend.  Golly!  When will the real Spring get here???  They also say we have quite a bit more rain headed our way.  Maybe that will be our Spring??

Today I have more birdie photos to share with you.   They all eat together in our yard.  Even some squirrels and chipmunks come to enjoy the food with them.

I'll save some photos for tomorrow.   Remember I told you that I got the Shingles shot last week?  They give the shot in the fatty part of the underside of your arm.  This is what mine still looks like a week later.  It was a lot brighter, but it is finally starting to fade.

Now for some fun stuff.  I have another QP for you.  This one is poking fun of our "Spring" weather.  The background is one of the photos that I took in my yard this past weekend.  Have fun with it.

Here is your download link:

Now I think I'll get busy and wash the breakfast dishes.  Then it will be time to start getting ready to go out.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a beautiful day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Have fun with your Aunt Lucy today. What a wonderful visit that will be. As for the birds.... OH MY how gorgeous they are... Your so fortunate to be able to capture such wonderful moments!

I will be asking my doctor about getting the shingles shot when I go. Do you have to have it every year? I have my pneumonia shot already and do not have to have it but every 5 years.

You asked about getting pictures of the bats. I would love to and have been trying but they are sneaky little things. They all fly out at once and any pics I have taken just seem to be a blur. I can listen to them at night here but they are flying around in the trees. I have gone out to see if I can see them but can only catch glimpses. They are happy here and hunt as they nest here in these trees. But the other colony fly's out.
Jonathan and I are planning on going down to Congress Ave on the bridge to watch as thousands exit at Sunset soon. They will be active soon, more so at the end of April but they may be now as we have not had hardly any winter at all. And now that he has a car it will be so much easier to get out and do things.
He said to me the other night that it looks like he will be pulling in more over time just so he will not struggle to make the payments.

Talk to you later. Love, Beth

Hmmm, Andrea had a good point. Perhaps I'll try snacking on doggie treats instead and see if that helps.
