Selfies on Monday, for Sunday Selfie Day...Earth Day, Too!

Petcretary has been quite busy the past week, a lot of her business had nothing to do with furry ones either.
She went to her oncologist, a 60 mile one way usually that means a wasted day as far as us two goes. She left just after lunch and got back after dark o'clock. She indulged herself in a day of shopping after her appointment. Silly petcretary she didn't get anything she couldn't have gotten here at home, BOL/MOL!
But she did enjoy herself:)
Because she got another good report from the oncologist. Way back in 2006, she was diagnosed, and after several surgeries directly and indirectly related to that issue, and 16 months of chemo, its good to still hear in 2018 that there is no 'evidence of disease'. Praise the Lord!!
Slowly ever so slowly the weather has been inching towards springlike conditions. There was snow at the beginning of the week, but not enough to dampen the spirits of the blue bells. They are still there, blue and bright and pretty. Saturday, petcretary worked in the yard for several hours, and she only had on a sweater over her shirt. That's a first! Sunday was similar. And there was sun! Glorious warm bright and happy times sun! YES! Even a daffodil decided Earth Day was a good time to show off its cup and saucer. Hopefully more will follow. Last year at this time our weeping cherry was about to burst forth in pink froth, but it will be quite a bit later this year...hope it will be just as beautiful! When we drove to church today, it was good to see the shades of color starting to brighten up the trees  in the horizon. We know that soon the trees will have their icky pollen (to which petcretary is very allergic to...), and then all the leaves will dress up the trees for the summer time.
Even though we grumble about the lateness of spring, it still arrives and this is what God has decreed, that there will always be a regular cycle of changing seasons...and yup, once again we are changing from winter to spring:)
OK. time for our selfies! Nothing special...just us in the sun. Well, Dalton was, and my selfie was taken inside, in dimmer early morning light, sans flash, so its rather grainy. But its ME!
The sun is just starting to come up, its comimg in through the front door window...

Hi Ya'll!

First Daffodil of the 2018 spring season at our den.

A closer view of the same daff, amongst the bluebells.
We helped petcretary make 2 birthday cards:

  13. Congratulations to your petcretary for getting a clean bill of health! Hooray! We're hoping our spring weather stays around. We have been known to have snow on Mother's Day. Ghostwriter says it's actually good that spring is late. That means the fruit trees won't bloom too early and then get a frost. Hopefully we'll be eating lots of yummy pears from Joey's pear tree this August!
