The wind is blowing so hard and there's no squirrel hopping from tree to tree even the birds are no where in sight.The river in front of the house is overflowing with muddy water. Three weeks ago we were so hopeful and delighted that although it was still kinda chilly, it felt spring. We had barbecue and even harvested lots of wild garlic leaves. Finally!! we unanimously agreed the summer is just around the corner
But Mother Nature has other plans. They even announced snow. Thankfully,not here. Now, as I pause and look outside I imagine summer. One full of fun,laughter and excitement.
Some ice cream for the girls won't even hurt.

But for now I'm keeping myself warm while dreaming of summer...
