February Begins to Pass

No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn.

It is the middle of February and now the pastels and rabbits are beginning to appear 

around the house. I am glad to feel good enough to dig in the closet. Last week was 

horrible medical tests and biopsies; this week mammograms and bone tests. Even 

Biscuit has to have her yearly shots this week. It is beginning to feel too druggy 

around here! It feels good to see the spring tea pots, the spring flowers even if 

most are silks.

That forsythia--even if it's silk--is bound to cheer you up.

Oh, I DO hope you are feeling much better, Claudia. Your bun bun is so cute. It's nice to think of spring, isn't it? Susan

Thanks for the cheerful photos. I'm hoping spring will arrive soon, and I'm sending warm thoughts for better health your way.

It must be close to spring: I feel the urge to clean! So I began with a bookcase that sagged in the middle (like plastic does!)and tried to jury-rig a support. In the process I found papers from 9/11/'01 that I'll keep for my descendants, plus lots of things I can now slip into the recycling box and hope I don't one day need them again. It was so warm midday that I changed to a short-sleeved shirt and thinner slacks. I'll have to change my Valentine decor soon. March will be St. Patrick's and Easter things. Hope you have a great week. xoxo

Ugh! It SOUNDS "druggy" over there!
I really like the Hal Borland quote you posted & hold on to that sentiment myself.
Hope you "pass" all the tests and are able to move on into a healthy, early springtime.

Your photos are cheerful. Hope all tests come back good. 70 this weekend.
