Slice of Life ~ Day 11 of 31

It’s that time of year when:
  • a variety of colors seem to burst forth from the once barren trees of winter 
  • pollen and mold spores begin to create chaos... causing the dreaded sneezing, stuffy nose, and itching 
  • heat and humidity, combined with the need to expose more skin, causes anguish if weight has been gained during the winter months 
  • feet that have been protected all winter long are eager to appear with nothing but flip-flops
  • robins begin to return singing their melodious morning songs 
  • bonfire length hot dog forks wait patiently for a beautiful day 
  • the drone of lawnmowers as they play a familiar song 

The list could go on...and on....

It's definitely that time of year again.


  1. I like the way you portrayed the trees blossoming. I have enjoyed your slices of life.

  2. I am your newest follower . . . so excited that I found your blog. What a delightful blog! I so relate to your post.

  3. I'm glad to have found you from your comment. Your list is so similar to mine, but more observations of the coming spring. I think you're yearning for those warm weather things, right? Thanks!

  4. I like your style of writing- it reminds of when I hear something vividly descriptive and I get the children to either repeat or close their eyes and "See" it....


    Going Nutty!
