All my daffodils have actually faded away at this point but nothing as showy has taken their place so these are going to be my default Easter flowers. So, Happy Easter! to those of you who celebrate it and I hope my Jewish friends had an enjoyable Passover and all. We've had a wonderfully sunny and warm week but today is gloomy and rainy again, darn it. I truly hate to complain about getting rain but I think most of us in this area of the world are still operating on a sunshine "deficit"! Such a miserable winter we had; I think it's going to take many, many sunny, warm days to get everybody caught up.
Today's post isn't about much of anything, as many of my posts have fallen into the habit of lately. Really, I just wanted to welcome a couple of new followers and to thank all of you that continue to read and comment here. Don't anybody let the number of followers there fool ya though. Half the people listed there never read anymore. And yes, yes, I know all the 'just write for yourself' adages and all, and I do....write for myself that is, but I still enjoy the interaction with folks and comments. I think one reason I have blogged for so long is the blogs being such a great avenue to talk to people from so many different places and see how other people live and think. I really love to hear how things are for you in your part of the world and learn about people that live in a different environment than me. I know my writing style may suggest that I am just presenting info for you and don't want feedback but that's not true by any means. So, thank you for hanging in with me. I know this blog is not as interesting since I retired from construction and got married, my falling statistics tell me that, but I have been wanting to kinda revamp things here anyway and I am considering some new stuff. Nothing drastic, just maybe adding some pages with new info and stuff and maybe a new weekly listing such as the ol' Friday Food or Wordless Wednesday thing. Anybody have any suggestions there??
And as I've mentioned a little before, the gloom, sickness and sadness of this winter has really done a number on me these past few months and I have struggled to maintain an optimistic and cheerful attitude at times. But ya'll know that I've always had a little bit of an issue with that anyway. I have made some progress on feeling better lately though, probably through no small coincidence of more sunny days, and plan on writing a little about that. Some of you maybe feeling the same way and my experiences and solutions might help a little.
So, I hope everybody is hanging in there and enjoying some better weather lately. Hopefully Spring will be upon us all very quickly and we will all be soaking up the light and warmth of the sun and good times in no time!! Happy Easter or just Happy Sunday!!
