Peaceful


 Cause, it's oh so peaceful here
 No one bending over my shoulder
 nobody breathing in my ear
 Oh so peaceful here... I just found this song again on iTunes.  I saw Kenny Rankin the writer of this song as an opening act for of all people Cheech and Chong back in the day.(I think it was)  I was listening to the song as I started this post and it just fit.  Then I looked it up to find that Helen Reddy also had a hit with this song, gosh remember her, I am woman, hear me roar!  I grew up in an  interesting time for women.
 My guy, feeling good, looking great...glad to have my walking buddy back.
 The snow is melting and we've had a couple of beautiful days.  I got out to sweep the deck and putter a little.
 I cleaned this banner, it's huge, well over 6 foot tall.  A neighbor used to hang this every spring and I loved it so much, and told them so once at a garage sale at their house.  Fast forward a few years later and I found this banner at my front door  with a note from these dear folks, saying they were moving and remembered how much I liked the banner.  I think it was a store display, anyway as soon as honey has the time, it's going up this year.  After the winter we've had, Spring needs a big welcome..

I even potted a plant that I got for my birthday that had a tragic fall and lost all of it's soil.
Catching the sun as it was setting, love the longer days.  The light, oh yes...peaceful.
I finished this shawl.  Granny shawl made by a granny. That's it, all I have today...

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy this beautiful day.

How quickly your snow melts. So pleased you are able to go for walks again not having to look at mounds & mounds of snow. It would drive me crazy . I am so much a sun shine girl and would really love to live somewhere where the sun shines everyday. But my Mr France tells me I would miss the seasons. I mumble under my breath 'Oh NO I wouldn't ' How kind of your neighbor to give you the banner you liked . Is it in place yet ?

It has been so nice to go out without a coat. Very ready for spring here. I do like the extra daylight. Hugs
