Lazy Days of Winter?

I know it's just the last couple of days of winter, but it's too soon for the weather to be this beautiful, isn't it?

The day was so nice that I spent a couple of hours out on my hammock, finishing The Hunger Games. It's not that I'm complaining, but I hate to see winter end when we've not really had any winter weather. If this isn't the mildest winter we've had in the last 8 years, it's close to it. I started to think I was back in Las Vegas.

I took a tour of my garden, and I have tulips and other, unidentified bulbs coming up everywhere. I planted them so late last year that I thought of it more as a burial than a planting, but they survived and are coming up strong. The fruit trees are budding, too, there's even a flower on one of them.

I hope that this mild winter doesn't mean a hot summer is coming. I'll do my best to enjoy what we've got right now and try not to worry about what is on its way.

Enjoy the moment. we set a temperature record up here today and more to come this week, I think. Like you, I sure hope this does not mean a hot, humid summer. But one day at a time . . .
