How did it get to be Saturday already? I mean, really?! This week went by in a blur of sun and rain, warm and freezing, -- the epitome of late winter in New Jersey. Finally, most of the snow is gone, but now we have mud. Of course, we could very easily get more snow. It's not unheard of to see snow in March, and even occasionally April, in these parts.
(Please God, no!)
Ah well, every day is just a little bit longer than the one before, and with the snow cover gone, hopefully we will see some snowdrops popping up soon.
Pictured above is our dining room, with it's French doors that lead out to the deck and the garden. We have spent the last several months peering out at the snow covered deck, remembering lazy summer evenings spent taking a leisurely dinner while the fireflies danced around our candlelit table.
(That sound you hear is my husband softly whimpering. He misses his grill.)
So until we can bring the deck furniture out of storage, you can find us here almost daily, looking out the deck doors and sighing. Yes, we are pathetic. Just don't tell my husband I told you about the whimpering. :)
Are you all ready for another Mosaic Monday? We had several new participants last week, and I'm so thrilled that they could join us! I will put the link up on Sunday evening, by 8:30 pm Eastern time, USA. Looking forward to seeing all your mosaics!
