Maybe it was because I was gloating too much about our warm, sunny weather followed up by some beautiful photos of deck-living. Or perhaps it was yesterday’s ‘Supermoon’; whatever the cause, I’m now bearing the brunt of a full blown rain storm. So much for the first day of Spring being a bright one. Instead of riding my bike to Starbucks, I’m stuck inside preparing my own coffee (which is probably a good thing since I’m on a budget) and working today.

For those of you enjoying the first day of Spring, inside or out, here are a few links for your reading pleasure:

Enjoy your first day of Spring be it rainy, sunny or snowy!

    Hi Jennifer-You get no sympathy from me (in the freezing right side of the USA) about a bit of rain. I say suck it up 🙂 Actually, I have a tip for you, buy a bag of joe at Starbucks and there’s an offer for a free cup if you return the bag.
