April!





















Awake, thou wintry earth -
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!
~Thomas Blackburn, "An Easter Hymn"

No snow here today, but lots of thunderstorms and rain. We went to church underneath a large red & white striped umbrella. Hubby's hip has given him too much pain today though. Glad you had a good day...sending you a smile or two.. or three..=)

Ah,,Ha!!..Saija, does this mean that the Fearless Feline has FINALLY given up on waiting for Christmas to return and is now looking for a sunny Easter?

They do tell us here that in Southern Ontario we wil be getting a white Easter Friday....to make up for the green Chrismas that we, uh that I enjoyed this year!

Such a good Easter poem Saija!...Love Terry

maggie ann ... thanks for the smiles!!! and the humid weather makes for many an interesting (?) limp ... we have been watching folks walk by today, and many are limping - when last week they weren't!

eija ... this week will be cold - but SOON the really warm weather will come - i'm counting on it!!!

connie ... awww, that would be nice - some warm texas weather! :o)

terry ... actually with everything ALL white again (the rain/slush/ turned to snow overnight!), our fearless feline IS looking for Christmas! ...

Poor kitty has probably forgotten what greenery looks like! :)

Saija said...

j ... i think so! he's longing for birds chirping and the window to be open!!

Terry said...

Dear Saija...You just tell that Fearless Feline..."Listen to but no touching those birdies!!"
Jeanette's cats would never even think of doing such a thing as that!!
And that Shopping News of Bernie's surley knows better if he values his life!!..Love Terry

jel said...

some cool posts you have been doing!

Saija said...

terry ... our fearless feline only looks - since he is strictly an indoor cat! but he chatters his teeth and dreams of getting closer to the birds anyway!

jel ... well thank you for saying that ... i haven't had much to say these days, i've just been internalizing my thoughts - more then having stuff to share ... blessings on ya!
