Spring has Sprung

When I was in school, I can recall lessons about the importance of choosing a good title. It all sounds well and good, but coming up with an interesting title seems impossible sometimes. Spring has sprung might not be clever enough, but I figured that spring was a much loved topic after the crazy winter times we've had and might spark some interest. ;) It's really been nice out most of of the week, and it is a welcome change. Bring on the warmer weather!

This weekend I was able to get out and photograph a few of the sights in my front yard. There is evidence both of death, as in the old withered rose hips, and new life in the flowers, flower buds, newly formed and forming leaves and green grass.
Dandilions are practically everywhere. I was able to capture a few decent shots. The part that made it difficult was the breeze which blew the flowers about, but one has to make the best of things. I imagined what it might be like with no breeze at all to keep a good attitude.

At any rate, here are a few of the resulting photos:

Sunday, I went to church and was pleasantly surprised to see Dennis and Sandy Zech. They have a ministry that uses magic tricks laced with humor to illustrate Biblical points, and it's always a lot of fun. I didn't really know about it ahead of time, so no photos to show for it. That's probably a good thing, though. LOL I did pick up a few magic tricks (e.g. turning a penny into a dime) for my husband. By the time Avalyn and Jocelin are old enough to appreciate it, he should be a master at it!

I have been keeping pretty busy between watching Avalyn, and work lately. Things are starting to get really busy. I had hoped to check my leave schedule today, and then
see if I could work something out so that I could see This Providence on the 28th. Before I could even ask, we were being offered credit leave with restrictions, namely that it cannot be used until after the program completion date which is probably sometime near the end of May. This means they are a little behind, and that no one will be too thrilled to grant me any unscheduled leave. Unfortunately the tour was announced a little to late for me to put in for the show ahead of time.
I have really missed This Providence, and I so want to see the guys again, but I'm not seeing how at this point. Hopefully it won't be such a long time between tours and I can see them in the fall? I just keep telling myself that there is a reason for everything.

On the bright side, I do have a ticket to see The Spill Canvas on Saturday.
It's been a while, and I am definitely looking forward to it.

On the 27th, Fireflight will be here, and I have the same issue as with the This Providence show. The difference is that I usually do work for the promoter, so I will most likely be working for the concert before the show and leaving to head for work before the show even starts.

It's so hard to believe that April is more than half over, and that it will soon be May. This year is most certainly flying by rather quickly. Have the days gotten shorter, or am I just old? Wait -- that is a rhetorical question!! LOL

Peace out,
