Hello swappers and friends!
February is such a short month, and ours was unseasonably mild - that makes me happier than you can ever know. I don't know why I've never liked winter, but I've been this way all my life. That said, this winter has been incredibly do-able for me! My big hope and prayer is that we stay like this through March. The optimist in me says "anything is possible" - the pessimist says "we are surely going to pay for this" and the realist says, "Lord - if we get snow in March, please don't interrupt my flights to and from Las Vegas"! Seriously, I have the worst luck with travel, but I'm always up for an adventure and I'm excited about my upcoming trip.
So --- back to February! Here are some of my favorite shots - Hope you enjoy!
I've been trying to step up my game when it comes to making Friendship Books. Here are some I made that I was quite pleased with:
So, as I mentioned, we have had a incredibly mild winter, and many trees are already in bloom. We usually do get them popping out early, but then we get snow or freezing cold rain, and the flowers are history. This year, we're actually able to enjoy them! As I'm typing this, it's going to be 80° this afternoon - definitely warm for us, and I ❤️it!
While the weather has been so mild, we've also had some extreme conditions, including a brief hail shower this past weekend:
I'm very pleased that I've been able to take my dog out when I go to the mailbox or to take out the trash, and she's been really good about not taking off and running away. She'll run laps around the perimeter and burn sone energy, but she comes right to the door when I go back inside. I think we both are enjoying this very much.
And my final picture of the month is a quote from President Trump's speech last night. Regardless of your political views, who you supported in the election, or even which country you may be from.... I believe it's time for us to work together towards making our world a better place for all people. I am hopeful that our best days are yet to come. Have a fantastic month everyone, and thanks for visiting my blog. If we're partners on Swap-bot, thanks for posting a rating for me, and I'd love to see your swap too, if you care to share, even if we're not partnered.
Till next time,
