Today I am thankful for foggy mornings and SUNSHINE. It was extremely foggy outside this morning and I had to wait quite a while for it to get light enough to take photos.
There was a thin layer of frost on the ground and by the time I made it out to take photos, the frost was already turning into dew.
A few hours later, the sun was trying to make it's presence known for the first time in WEEKS. I was so very glad to see it breaking through the fog.
Later in the afternoon, Eli and I went outside to soak up some of the glorious sunlight. I found the Lilac bush was showing some buds . . .
and my Crocuses were blooming! A SURE sign of Spring. (Although the weather forecast for this weekend is 6-8 inches of snow.)
It was nice taking time to smell the flowers, and soak up this warm weather before Winter gives us it's last yee-haw.
But I will truly be glad when things warm up and I can fill this empty planter with some pretty flowers.
While we were out and about, we took a walk to my parent's house. Eli stomped the puddles dry . . .
and snagged one of grandpa's equipment catalogs to browse through. He's definitely all boy.
Bayleigh stayed all night at mom and dad's, along with Kasey . . . so I'm sure my folks had their hands full.
I'm slowly breaking out of my reading coma (which is my only form of semi-vacation), but plan on easing myself back into my routines by Monday. As much as I'd like to . . . I can't keep my nose in a book 24 hours a day.
