Sunday Reflections…

What a beautiful morning! Sunny ☀️ with a bluebird sky. It’s Groundhog Day & I saw my shadow… You know what that means, yep, I need to loose a few pounds 😮

If ground-hog day was bright and fair,
The beast came forth, but not to stay;
His shadow turned him to his lair,
Where six weeks more, he dormant lay
Secure in subterranean hold—
So wondrous weatherwise was he—
Against six weeks of ice and cold,
Which, very certain, there would be…
~H.L. Fisher, “Popular Superstitions,”

I may have seen my shadow, but old Punxsutawney Phil did not! What does that mean? Well, if you trust the worlds most famous rodent prognosticator, it means Spring is coming early!!! Boom 💥 What have I been saying – Spring IS Coming! 💐🍾🌈

Ok, back in the real 🌎 I have a game to prepare for! My team didn’t make it this year  (❤️ Titans) so I’m rooting for the Chiefs… The hard parts gonna be finding Super Bowl snacks that help slim my shadow 😎

Groundhog Day made me think about MY shadow… I guess it’s Crudité for Super Bowl snacks 😊

Have a great day! Go Chiefs! And here’s to an early Spring!

Sunday Reflections…

What a beautiful morning! And, WOW what a difference a day makes… Just a couple of days ago we were freezing & talking about record lows, but today we might see 70! I literally had to smack a bug off of me yesterday evening! It feels like a Spring morning 🌞 Maybe Punxsutawney Phil was right? Spring is coming sooner than later! 🙏🏻

Year after year these daffodils are a sure sign of Spring. It won’t be long now until I get to see them bloom again. My Grandma planted them & they are special ❤️😊

I’ve already started my preparations for the season & believe me, I’m ready!! The Super Bowl plays today 🏈 then, it’s on to Spring!

“He knows no winter, he who loves the soil,
For, stormy days, when he is free from toil,
He plans his summer crops, selects his seeds
From bright-paged catalogues for garden needs.
When looking out upon frost-silvered fields,
He visualizes autumn’s golden yields;
He sees in snow and sleet and icy rain
Precious moisture for his early grain;
He hears spring-heralds in the storm’s ‘ turmoil­
He knows no winter, he who loves the soil.”

~ Sudie Stuart Hager

 

Have a blessed day!

PS: Go Patriots! 🏈
