April is a crazy busy month for me, and I'm sure it is
for you.  We have daffodils coming up in the garden,
and it was so warm the other day that I could sit out
on my back porch and imagine a whole summer of
meals looking at the garden.

But today it snowed and I looked out the window
a few minutes ago to see a thin spring blanket of
snow on the lawns, car roofs and over the budding

The snow was quite beautiful on and off today --
big lazy flakes coming down over the palest blue
skies.  The weather in a state of spring fever --
snow one minute, sunshine and bright day the
next.  We are all stuffed to the gills with a second
Easter dinner (turkey is the meal that keeps on

Have a changing-with-the-weather day.
