Spring Fever

I haven't been able to post for the last several days. No disability, just out of ideas, energy and motivation, all at the same time. Writer's block.

As I looked out over Scenic Bay, I suddenly realized that what I have is Spring Fever. The Sun is out today, my Maple Tree is budding. I have planted my seedlings in the window in anticipation of Spring Weather.

I went out to get my Spokesman-Review without a coat on. Yesterday was Winter...Today is Spring. McDonald's Marina is busy towing boats into the marina to be de-winterized. Sailboats are sailing. The Robins that frequent the aforementioned Maple tree are back. All is well.

I'm about to start back to work at my usual Summer job, at a nearby Theme Park. I may even get up the energy to rake the leaves I was too lazy to take care of last fall...Nah, I'll wait for at least one more wind storm. With any luck at all, they will blow into my neighbors yard.

The lake is blue, fish are swimming by waving their fins at me, urging me to venture out so that they might outsmart me once again. I can't call down they wrath of God without being upset at something or someone. I'm not angry about anything today.

Take my temperature, Doctor, I have it bad...

I'm glad I can live in Bayview part of the time in my lake home.We moved from Minnesota land of 10000lakes so we could enjoy one beautiful lake.

We moved here 31 years ago from Minnesota where we were born and raised..never been sorry a second, the best thing we ever did. This is truly God's Country.....
And you know those 10,000 lakes, a lot of them are swamps....(they don't say that in the tourist brochures)

You must work at Silverwood..what do you do???

We started raking today and burning and limbing and cutting down firewood. It is SO good to get outside, but boy do I hurt all over!!!
