Spring has sprung! (Sorry it is late, Terri!)


The weather is glorious today - warm, sunny, still. Ahhhhh.

Even the flowers are enjoying it!


As I told myself yesterday, I got some cheesecake for pudding...


There WAS some left...
It was just as wonderful as my sample had been yesterday...
I think I just un-did all of the push-ups and sit-ups that I have been doing. I could feel my jeans getting tighter as I ate!
Wonderful!

If it carries on like this I will soon be taking a guitar out at lunchtimes for a little mid-day relaxation. I can't wait. There is something really special about sitting in a beautiful spot, nibbling lunch and playing guitar through the earphones at ear-melting volumes...
Have a great day!

Gorgeous flowers! I'm counting the days until ours return. I think we just got hit with what is (I hope) our last winter storm. We didn't get as much snow as predicted but it's FREEZING!

I am hungry for cheesecake now!

Hey, maybe Jedi Fat Cat will return if you sit outside with your guitar!

(Thanks for humoring me!)

Terri - wow, I think you deserve a break - can Obama sort the weather for you? I looked for Jedi Cat but no sign yet. My pleasure!

I can't wait for the flowers to get here! It was -40 here yesterday with the wind chill...it's the middle of March for goodness sake!

Mmmm, cheesecake - and I don't even really like cheesecake :)

Chief Rock Chef said...

Ali - It is things like this that make people question Global Warming! If it was real you would be sunbathing in the garden by now! Don't like cheesecake?????!

Michele said...

Is that FLOWERS?! Real, honest to goodness FLOWERS?!
We have been hovering in the single digits (F, not C scale!). I am SOOOoooo tired of it being so cold.
I am thinking of purchasing a potted tulip plant just for a tiny spot of spring, even if it is indoors on the window sill!

it was a big mean trick chief. i was wearing short sleeves tuesday and wishing i had shaved my legs for shorts and then its COLD again today and the rest of the week. spring sprung and then ran away!

Nothing says spring like flowers and cheesecake. Strange but good combination. Cold weather has returned down here as well but not as bad as those poor souls up north.

Mike said...

Dear God... cheesecake is one of my biggest weaknesses. So bad for you... but SO worth it!

Chief Rock Chef said...

Michele - Yes they are real flowers! Hope things turn for you soon!

Zig - Yep, it was !

Nonna - I hate it when it does that! You always end up wearing the wrong clothes and either freeze or roast!

agg79 - Flowers and cheesecake - sounds like a good way to impress doesn't it?

Mike - life is short and you have to die of something - might as well make it something you enjoyed!
