for today...

outside my window... 29F & snowing, again
i am thinking... today is the first day of 'meteorological' spring
i am thankful for... a good plumber, who was here twice last week: for a frozen water pump, and then again to repair a broken pipe under the kitchen sink
i am wearing... black jeans, thermal shirt, fleece hoodie, and hiking boots
i am going... to town for groceries
i am currently reading... "The Gifts of Imperfection," by Brene Brown
i am hoping... for the end of subzero temperatures, and that I don't need to order anymore firewood
on my mind... gas @ $2.64/gallon, milk @ $2.55/gallon, sugar @ $1.79/4 lb
pondering these words... "the beautiful Spring came; and when Nature resumes her loveliness, the human soul is apt to revive also." ~ Harriet Ann Jacobs ~
from the kitchen... bread pudding *yum*
around the house... paperwhites
one of my favorite things... watching the winter birds @ the feeders & pecking away @ the suet cakes 
i'm creating... a new March blog header, and I seriously need a new FB timeline cover!
a few plans for the week...  a visit to the doctor's office in Lawrenceville, and a trip to Wellsville NY

from my lens:
will be back with photos a bit later
