Mama's Definitely Buying A Lottery Ticket Today
Blog Of Note.
What a stupendous surprise! And a little overwhelming. I woke up, grabbed the laptop to give my site a quick look-see before doing some writing and found 23 comments. That's not the norm for me so I clicked on warily thinking it was some weird spamming mix-up with made-up psycho/creepy words. Not a mix-up at all. What a gloriously lovely way to start the morning.
Next came a knock at the door for the group photo with recent Blog Noters and we get to keep the orange jackets.
This day just gets better and better. I'm hoping one of those little chickadees lets me borrow their fancy sash to wear to work tomorrow.
Warm welcomes and thank you very much for your comments and kind words. I am truly thrilled to meet you all:>)
and, what I had planned on posting today...
"One day soon the rain will let up, and the frost will leave the ground as stealthily as it came. There will be yielding all around and a sudden insistent adhesion in the barnyard. The urge to clean away winter from the corners of the lawn, from the deep shade beneath the hemlocks, will be irresistible. But all of this hides somewhere on the next page of the calendar. The good news now lies deep within the beehive, where the workers, their dead cast aside in the melting snow, have set the queen laying eggs once again."
