The Gift Of A Day


We were given an amazing gift today~
a wonderfully warm day....
unusual for Upstate New York
in February.
A record breaking 67 degrees!



What to do, right?
We celebrated...
making Iced Tea~
opening the windows to let the breezes in 
and 
opening the back door; 
allowing the glass door 
to help us enjoy
the sunshine and warmth.

It makes you realize,
 that the promise of Spring
is real.

The days are longer.
We are ready to awaken 
and enjoy our days...
filled with warm sunshine
 and greenery.

I had noticed yesterday, 
our Starling friends 
have returned.
Tonight they filled the trees 
and chattered happily,
as the sun went down.

We will enjoy tomorrow as well,
 as it will hold a similar warmth~
 then we will go back
 to our regular February.
The one that will glide into March...
with cold days....
and snow.


but oh, 
the glorious gift
that we have been given
today!

Yes, the gift of a day....or several. We enjoyed record warmth as well here in Wisconsin last week (upper 50's)...but today were blasted with a blizzard. Eeeek. I love what's on your work table. One day I hope to be able to adopt one of your bird creations....seems like they "fly away" so quickly.... Happy Weekend... Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
