rain rain..rain

its raining, its pouring the old man is snoring....   but thats ok right, because April showers bring May flowers!  I sure hope so.  It seems spring was so slow to get here and she still is dragging her feet.  but I did notice yesterday coming home from work that sweet pale green lacy-ness to the budding trees on the sides of the roads and the fresh new greening of the grass in some areas too.    its coming.. eventually.  its just a cold spring, thats all...  it's going to warm up eventually. we've been hovering between 40 and 55 for weeks it seems.  

Just checked our 10 day forcast and its staying in the 50's for the next 8 days then the 9th and 10th days they're calling for 61!  with lots of rainy days mixed in there.  woohoo.. (thats a sarcastic woohoo... )   lol!   well looking on the bright side, its not snow and its above freezing and I dont mind driving in it! plus the rain washes and refreshes the earth....   Im trying to be positive here.
 Well, enough about the weather...   In other news.. Easter is put away and the house has been springified.   birdies and nests, green plants and some flowers.  I need to paint somethings around here and do some more sprucing up, but otherwise this is it for a few weeks!  I'll be ready to switch over to patriotic decorating in mid june!  
Like this little bunny above?  I made her for a little swap with a friend.  not sure her picture does her justice, she is really really cute.   I want to make her a little sign that says happy spring or something.. but she needs to go in the mail this morning and you see where I am right now.. I may not get to the little sign! lol!
I am thinking about hosting a patriotic wreath challenge... anyone interested?  I need to make a wreath for myself and thought maybe some of you might need some  inspiration to do one for yourselves too.
OK.. gotta run!
happy wednesday!

Oh girl, we have had some weird weather here! REALLY windy here this morning!

I am running way behind reading blogs! My Brother has been VERY ill in the hospital but is on the mend!

Enjoy your day sweet Viv, HUGS!

We are drowning here in Virginia too! Hopefully today will be the last of the bad storms and torrential rains, it's looking like a pretty good weekend! Love that adorable bunny!

It's been dreary/cold and rainy here too. I'm so anxious for warmer sunnier weather. I need to finish putting away the last of my Easter decorations. Your nest and framed bird nest picture will be taking a place of honor on the living room mantle. Hugs!

I might be interested in a patriotic wreath swap.

Feeling lucky here with our nice spring days. Supposed to hit 85 today and 88 tomorrow. Now I am complaining that is too hot! Give me 75-80 and leave it at that!

I felt spring was a bit slow in coming, but we have leaves on the trees and the bulbs are almost done blooming. I hope it comes more quickly for you now that May is here.
