I just keep reminding myself: we have passed the solstice, nowhere to go but longer days. smile.gif

As I reminded one of my colleagues today as we commiserated about the cold - each day brings us closer to the spring.

The mourning doves have begun their spring hooting and cooing rituals on the rooftops and fire escapes just after sunrise every morning;a sure sign of spring ....
G*d is in the details...

And here on the West Coast we are fully entrenched in Spring. Hayfever is unbearable and the flowers and trees are almost in full bloom. oh it's going to be a long allergy season... sad.gif

It was pretty nippy (due to the wind) this morning. But yes, it was bright, brighter than it's been at 8 AM in quite some time. On the downside, the mourning doves are now back roosting on the window sills and issuing 5:30 wakeup calls.

Yeah, I ran out of bed an hour early today. Even woke Jack before I realized my mistake. angry.gif
“And another thing. You don't have to "move on" either. Not until you're ready. People say, Oh, you should be grateful. They say, Oh, it's time for you to move on. I'm like, What are you, a cop with a nightstick? I'll move on when I'm done playing the blues on my harmonica, thank you very much.

Really, people will tell you all kinds of garbage. Don't believe it.

You don't have to move on until you're ready.”

I get those too, only they like to perch on my ACs (and crap all over them). There was a very loud crow (or maybe a raven) hanging around the magnolia tree a couple of mornings ago, and I swear this past weekend a falcon was sitting on the neighbor's pear tree.
