Snake Saturday

Snake Saturday!

The morning snow shower ended in time for the start of the parade.

I am staying home.
I have packing to do.

My spring rejuvenation, spa retreat,
begins Monday.

My husband will take care of the birds while I am gone.

Happy Spring!

Have a good time with your spa retreat.

Dear Lisa,
I will miss you too.
I am excited and some what nervous.
Hope the birds do not forget me!
I will be taking pictures and notes!

Q said...

Dear Cheryl,
Thank you. It is still cold here so I do not need to be concerned about missing too much while I am gone. My husband will make sure the birds have food and water.
I am all packed, ready to go!
I am looking forward to sharing my spa time with you when I get home.
Thank you for your good wishes.

Dear Mari-Nanci,
I think my city made up "Snake Saturday'! We have three different St. Patrick's Day Parades. St. Patrick's Day is a big event in my city.
Thank you! I hope I do have fun and learn lots! I also hope I come home with lots of energy and ready to garden!

Q said...

Dear Deb,
Some years it is warm for St. Pat's Day and the parades are fun. Today would have been too cold and wet for me to enjoy them.
Thank you for spa/retreat support.
This is my way of bringing Spring and rebirth to my body! I already feel better than I did just a month ago. The home prep has been great.
Happy Spring to you too.

Dear Cathy,

I hope to write some poetry while I am gone.

Dear Shelia,
I am ready for warmer temperatures!
It is cold today and windy.
Soon, very soon I will be able to sow some seeds! Looking forward to eating my garden lettuces and spinach.

Dear Tom,
My husband did a great job keeping the feeders full while I was gone. He did say he thought the birds missed me. I think he was just being nice. He even gave Mockingbird his raisins.

Q said...

Dear Meggie,
I had a great time. Missed seeing everyone's journals but I will catch up!
Happy Autumn to you!

Q said...

Dear Mary,
I am thinking I will go sit on the deck for a little while this afternoon. It is cold so I will need my blankets!
There were plenty of birds in Iowa but they were not my birds!
Happy to be home!

Q said...

Dear Pat,
Happy Easter!
I am excited to start planting soon.

Q said...

Dear Gisela,
Thank you!
Happy Spring to you too!
The season of rebirth.

Q said...

Dear Cat,
The birds did just fine with out me! I missed them more than they missed me I think!
My husband was very nice to take care of all of them.
Spring is slow this year. I love that. I am enjoying each new emergence.
Happy Spring!!
