Spring Is In The Air

It is getting warmer around here and the beautiful buds of Spring are showing their wonders! My Bradford pear tree is in full bloom. I still have the unanswered question of why such a beautiful tree has such a bad smell. The pungent odor filled my nostrils today as I was descending my steps to take Nathan to his speech therapy session. Why can't they have a more appealing fragrance like magnolias or gardenias? Whatever the reason I will continue to enjoy the beauty, tolerate the smell, and give God the glory and thanks for sharing this creation with me.


I also praise God that I was able to descend the steps today. I have had lower back spasms for a couple of days. I wanted to rest my back, but I had to make that appointment. I tried to be very careful in every movement made. I did not want to let out one of those uncontrollable yelps in the middle of the office. Of course after all the conversation/gossip that was taking place behind the receptionist desk it would have been quite amusing to see their reaction. I could really go on a rant here about such things as that, but since I am trying to be nice I will let it pass. And if any of you ladies from the office are reading my blog (I know you're not, but just in case) how about keeping it down. I find it completely embarrassing to hear about other clients or your own personal information for that matter. I was eavesdropping by force. I mean if I am going to eavesdrop let me do it willingly...*grin*


Since I had to go out today I decided to drop by Goodwill. I have been planning to go on a hidden treasure search. I found plenty of mismatched cups, plates, and the such, mostly stoneware. Sad to say, nothing I was interested in. If I were in the market for a new sofa, I would have hit the jackpot. A beautiful Queen Anne sofa and loveseat came in while I was there. The price was amazing. I did purchase Nathan a toy jeep that was still in box for 50cents. I guess all the other treasures remained hidden. *sigh* I may try again later. I think my backache may have hampered with my shopping skills.


Anyway, as I was going to say in reference to my Spring title, I have changed my header. How do you like it? I know I am apt to change it again shortly, but I think I like it......for now......

Oh, SO pretty! Very spring-like. It lifts my spirits just looking at it.

I've been praying for your back too. Have you seen your doctor about it?

I have to email you later today about some dates...

Thanks for the compliments on my header. And no, Anita, I haven't gone to the dr. I had this happen about a year ago and after resting a few days the pain was gone. Thank you for praying. I think I will be fine by the weekend. Don't forget to email me! I was thinking you were going to post about it, but.......(waiting for you) lol

Yes, the Header is so you! LOVE it! Hope your back is feeling better. Mine's been a little sore, too. Maybe I'm having sympathy pains. No, mine's old age... lol!!

Take care!
