Just a quick note,,,

...to say happy spring! I think it's finally here, for real! It's been rainy off and on, but with gorgeous, glorious sunshine in between and everything here in Binghamton is sprouting with bright greens and...
 PINKS!
These blossoms are one my fave signs of spring, and they hold a special memory of sweetness for Eric and I from when we were just getting to know each other, so when I noticed them across the street from my house, I got a big goofy grin on my face and that warm fuzzy feeling...ok, ok...I will spare you the sap and not tell the story...moving on...ahem...
Another sure sign of spring...a friend posted this to his facebook page the other day and I just had to save it for myself. I wish I could think these things were awesome, but for some reason they just give me the heebie-jeebies. I think it's because I had an unfortunate incident once where I came across a rather enormous one when I was moving some furniture and...well, let's just say I didn't notice the big fella until after the bottom of my shoe did. I don't generally gross out very easily, but it took me a few moments to recover from that one...

ANYWAY. Moving on, once again. Just wanted to say I hope you're all enjoying life and nice weather and gearing up for EARTH DAY's 40th anniversary on April 22! (40 years! Can you believe it?? Those hippies sure were onto something, don't ya think??) Do something special for the planet every day, my lovelies! It'll sure pay off in the end! (Oh, and watch out for snails, because some days don't we all feel like a big slug with a heavy shell on our backs?)

Great photo of the tree. Totally jealous of your spring. We got snow friday and our daffodils (Greg says I should call them jonquils...*rolling eyes*)aren't even all the way up yet. *sigh*

I can't believe you killed a snail by stepping on it. I'm totally grossed out now...thanks. (even if it WAS by accident!)

YOU were grossed out?? YOU didn't have it all over the bottom of your flip flip!
