Bye Bye February

Hello to you all out there. I hope everyone has been healthier than my household. Nothing to worry about, just colds, but they can sure take a person down.  Life seems exceptionally cruel when we are sick. Hopefully it will all be over soon, and we can enter our Spring feeling awesome!
 
Other than someone in the household being ill on and off since Boxing Day, yup - 2 months, things have been good here.  I've been scrapbooking up a storm, a hobby I've had for 20 years.  I have done many albums and I always look forward to the next one. One of these days, I would like to start one for just my own hobby photography, just the pretty stuff that I only enjoy here on my blog.
 
I'm really looking forward to Stephanie's upcoming teacup exchange in March.  I also celebrate my 41st birthday in March as well as my husband's.  The birthdays along with the possibility of an early Spring, March is a month to look forward to here. 
 
I've still been taking long walks with my puppy down the road, but enough snow melted during some warm weather here lately, that I can get around a lot of my yard easily enough, no snowshoes necessary.

Dead of Winter

If you truly 
love nature
you will find
beauty
everywhere.

Escape

Unlike a lot of people, when I crave an escape or a change of pace, I head for a city.  People who do the opposite, visit the country to escape the city, often say they are leaving far too soon.  I have never felt that way about a city. It doesn't take long, and I am eager to go home, to get back to the quiet, the dirt roads and the complete lack of people.
