Maybe the worst is over? (crossing fingers and toes!)

What is that?  Is that a hint of warm weather?

Do I hear birds chirping?

Do I see green coming into the plants and trees?

Am I sitting out on my back deck, blogging away (with Hubby right next to me - asleep upright?  HOW does he do that????) at 8:00 pm - NOT covered in layers head to toe?.

Can I dare hope that winter is finally past?

Boy, I sure hope so - cause this has been the roughest winter since we've been here.  It has made me long for that Texas heat (and humidity - which between you and me I never thought I'd EVER say that!).

Although - some of the "nervous nellies" are saying that the cold weather isn't over yet - I'm ignoring them!  I'm convinced it's time to paint my toes and pull out my sandals!  Whose with me?!

  7. I hope so, I'm sick of being cold. Our weather has been beautifully sunny, but still cold and windy. But, better than 0 degrees, like when we first arrived. I cleaned out all of my garden beds, and got the yearly comment from my mom "don't do it too early." Seriously?? I haven't killed anything off yet... good ole' mom.
