Teeny Tiny Hints of Spring

Although it's supposed to snow a bit later (heavy sigh), there is definitely a tinge of spring in the air around Chez Bee these days. It's weird. There have been no physical changes; still cold, still icy, still bleak.  But that tiny voice in my head has begun to softly chant, "There's hope...there's hope...there's hope."  The tiny voice has either been really quiet for months or it's been drowned out by the myriad of other, more mischievous voices rattling around in there, including the one who sounds like Animal from The Muppets that has been bellowing, "All hope is lost! All hope is lost!" for the past several weeks. I don't know.  I'm just glad it's finally back.

This week has been a whirlwind of vet appointments, chores, errands and socially things. I'm looking forward to lunch with a friend I haven't seen in a couple of months today and a movie with my second mother this evening- Gnomeo and Juliet.  Shut up! What's funnier than talking garden gnomes!? 

Tomorrow night is Knit Night where I will pick up my sweater that I haven't touched since Saturday.  This MollyDoodling thing has really got me in its grip and every 'spare' moment (and some that aren't so spare) finds me scribbling away at my little kitchen table.  This is my favorite one so far.  I completed it last night in lieu of laundry, picking up clutter, doing dishes or vacuuming.
Ben has had more than his fair share of vet appointments lately for this and that. He's fine although yesterday's vet says he has a slight heart murmur?!?!?  None of the other vets have mentioned it.  Hmmm...this vet is very young and very enthusiastic.  Maybe he has bionic hearing. Or maybe he just heard all of  the extra love swirling around in Ben's big old heart.

Spring is coming! I hope the tiny voice in YOUR head is starting to chant too! Have a wonderful Thursday!

Glad to hear that things are heading "towards the light" in your world. I don't like hearing about your feeling somewhat down in the dumps. I guess Spring (or the "whiff" of it) truly is the revitalizing season, eh? ;)

It's the extra daylight! That's what gives me a bit of hope this time of year: daylight at 7 a.m.; still daylight going on 6 p.m.
