Here comes the sun!

Cardinal waiting for breakfast

Oh, my, but I was happy to see clear blue skies yesterday, and sunshine, and 60 degrees. Although the snow was still on the ground and ice on the driveway and my car stuck at the bottom of the hill, it began melting. I spent the day outside getting the ice off the driveway…so we could get my car out of the ditch at the bottom of the driveway…and no, I am not the one who put it in the ditch and embedded it up to the bumper in the wet mud and leaves under the snow. Just saying…

The driveway

You can see the problem–that 45 degree turn just where you enter the steep incline, right? I have seen more than my share of mishaps on this driveway and sometimes they were my fault, but I have to say, I have seen far more of those mishaps by “professional” drivers who cannot back down this curving steep incline where you cannot determine the edge of the driveway no matter how many times a week I sweep or rake those leaves and pine straw off it…and that is all I will say about that. It rained overnight, and most of the rest of the snow is now gone. I was almost giddy to go out this morning and see blue skies and sunshine and water in the bird bath that I put there yesterday with the water hose. Yeah!

I am all about cleaning up and cleaning out, and going outside as much as possible today. As I skipped down the hill to bring up the trash bin they finally emptied this morning after a week of delay, I just lifted my hands to the sky and said thank you out loud.

    It’s melting – the snow is melting. So I raised my hand to the sky and said thank you. Always tell folks it was not you that got the car stuck in the snow – I would!

    I can feel your happiness coming through. Except for the driveway. You have a nice variety of birds! Enjoy that sunshine!

    Same here! So thankful for warmer days, blue skies, and being able to see the ground again. I feel appreciation for the smallest things now that I’ve got them back! I’ve spent today throwing out plants that won’t be coming out and cutting back others that, hopefully, will sprout again. When I covered the plants on Saturday the forecast had snow, but none of the single digit temperatures with below zero wind chills. I truly feel like a new, rejuvenated soul and I’m sure you do, too.

    And, LOL I would probably do far worse on that driveway although it is scenic in the picture!

      Scenic is not a word I use about it much this time of year. LOL. It is pretty in spring and fall with the colors and greenery and blooming flowers. My jonquils and daffodils had just started to bud out, so I hope they will survive.

      I am glad you had a productive day and hope your plants do well. We can definitely all appreciate the better weather.


  4. I could feel your joy in the words and photos. Hooray!

  5. Yes! Blue skies and sunshine! And no frozen water in the birdbath. Our driveway has a curve and I have trouble backing out of the garage but your long driveway would be a challenge!
