March 4, 2016
I am in the mood for spring! I have just had enough crazy cold weather. Are you shaking your head agreeing with me? ha!
I added some flowers to the blog, and a few to the house. I am so ready to begin spring activities...even though it is still March.
That would be March in Kentucky. Over the years I can remember snow, ice storms, and cold nasty weather. I can also remember sunshine and warmer temps. I guess we just have to roll with mother nature's plan and hold on for April.
I pulled some green tulips out of my stash, as I have no natural green to report. I have looked around outside, and there is not one speck of green. In fact, we had some snow flakes a few minutes ago.
Pulling out some green for my home decor helps me get in the mood for spring though. I have a few pics with natural light.
And I have a few pics with "un" natural light. They are more yellow of course...but some of the green still shows itself.
These are a few of my faux tulips...that I gave a shower. I have found that swishing my stems in a sink of dish liquid and warm water work for removing the dust and perking up my silks when I pull them out again.
I can't wait for spring to rise and shine. What a wonderful time for renewal! The ground reminds us of earthly renewal, which can nudge us to think about personal and spiritual renewal.
Many of you are planning your gardens and ordering seeds, plants, and trees. We make a commitment to one more growing season. A growing season both in the ground and in our hearts and minds. I welcome both.
I have a spring trip to Lexington planned. I am on the Alumni Board of my alma mater,Transylvania University and it is time for the spring board meeting.
I so enjoy going back to my old campus. Many things have changed, but on the old historic campus many things are the same. At the time Transylvania began it was the oldest college west of the Allegheny Mountains. (When Kentucky was just a part of Virginia.)
I am so proud to be a part of the Transylvania history and community as an alum. If you have a child or know of a child thinking about college and are looking for a small liberal arts school, consider looking at Transy.

Spring...a time for new beginnings!
