Schools and some businesses are closed today. It’s terrible out there.
Earlier this week I was standing next to my oldest daughter and found myself really tilting my head up to look at her. Suddenly it occurred to me that she had grown a few more inches! She’s 4 inches taller than me now.
Speaking of growth, the maple has also grown, a lot. It’s still a baby but it’s looking better each year.
Last week husband and I went to the reservoir to do some running (him) and biking (me). The weather was perfect. I had my phone with me so I took some pictures. One of these days I plan to take the DSLR and take much better photos. For now I think these don’t look so bad. I used actions by Sarah Gardner on the photos.
It’s been raining for a few days now, although, it seems the sun has come up today. The forecast for the week should be more rain and maybe even sleet on Mother’s Day. I actually love the rain and gray clouds. It might feel gloomy and depressing but it makes the earth so rich and vibrant with colors.
I’ve been meaning to take photos of the plants in the yard but kept forgetting until this morning. I’m really glad I got some nice shots. I’m always in awe of how drew droplets randomly sit on the leaves and flowers in such a way that it takes my breath away. I feel blessed to experience this small part of nature. It’s something so unimportant, yet, it gives me happiness.
