Spring Has Sprung

The temperatures rise
Slowly, slowly the snow melts
The sun has returned

Soon, April showers
Will be bringing May flowers
Green grasses and leaves

I'm planning away
A new raised garden for me
and the kiddos too

Peas, lettuce, peppers,
Tomatoes, basil, carrots,
A pumpkin or two

A seed catalog
Keeps me busy for hours
Dreaming of summer

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
