I am happy to say that, as beautiful as this is, the winter wonderland just may be done for the season. You never really know, as March came in like a lamb and therefore could go out like a lion. But most of the snow in my yard is melted and I am getting that spring time itch to get out there and start digging in the dirt. So between that and the fact that our cat is incessantly howling to go outside, I have come to the conclusion that spring just might be here.
While experiencing that and the New Moon, I am just chomping at the bit to get going with a few projects. I have eaves troughs that need replacing and a fire pit area with raised garden beds to create. That includes the creation of a new flowerbed as well and the planting of a tree. I can hardly wait!
Today is St. Patrick's Day. Although I am completely into the Wee Folk and the Luck'o'the Irish, I am not into St. Patty himself, as he was the one responsible for killing and driving away the Pagans from Ireland. Just a minor Holy War in the history of the earth, but a brutal one at that. As though there is any such thing as a war that is Holy! So no, I don't celebrate that particular "saint", but I do like to wear green and actually look good in it. Considering that spring is just around the corner, I figure, "Why the heck not?!"
