It is officially spring and has been for a few days now. We have a couple of inches of snow and ice from a couple of days ago. This is not how I remember spring is supposed to be, is it? It looks beautiful out our front window - the ice crystals sparkling in the sunlight off the branches from the trees in our woods - but Sunshine slides all over the place just trying to take care of her business while we are walking (make that slip-sliding away, as the old Simon/Garfulkel song goes) outside. The temperature has risen up into the double digits in the last hour so maybe warmer days are in store? The birds and squirrels are using our feeder big time, now. Gotta keep 'em fat and sassy!
