Another Happy Spring!

Well, it's my second spring here at blogland! Can't believe a year has gone by already! Had a nice sunny day with chance of showers today. It's currently rumbling in the distance, and it threatened of rain yesterday, but we never got it. We did get turkey calls though! Yesterday around 6:15 pm when it had cooled off and it was rumbling in the distance. It was the most gobbling I'd heard in one sitting ever. They sounded like they were in the field behind out house. Mark does what you call seed calling every day. They were at it for nearly a half an hour. I just sat out there for a while and enjoyed hearing them. Another first is the first tick of the season on me. The other day, I had recently taken a shower and I was in the kitchen washing dishes and felt something on the back of my neck. Lo and behold it was a tick! No doubt one of the cat brought him in. And Mark took care of the thing. And as I typed this post another tick! This one crawling up the side of the mantle piece by the computer! Needless to say, Mark and I put some tick and flea treatment on the back of the cats' necks and they shot off like a rocket when they realized what was going on! But it seems they're back to their normal selves now. I love the nicer weather, but we have to battle with those ticks and fleas again. And before too long I will be sneezing from the pollen. The nicer it gets outside, the worse I get! Enjoying the blooms and nice fresh air for now. It's not bothering me yet! So I hope everyone can rejoice and give thanks for another official SPRING day the Lord has given! Blessings to all! Laura


  1. Yes, Laura, I too am so glad to see Spring. It is my favorite time of the year. The rain, well, as long as it isn't those horrible tornadoes we had in the South last 27 April.

  2. Thank you for stopping by and your sweet comments. I heard on the news that this is going to be a horrible tick season because it got warm to early, they actually said all of the bugs are going to be bad this summer YIKKES!
