I'm Absolutely Intoxicated...

...with the glorious first faint whiff of spring. It doesn't look like this yet...

 ...and I am sure it won't look like this for several months. But walking home from the subway this evening was intoxicating and I practically skipped. The aroma of damp earth, the gentle air and big bright moon made for a heady mix. It's a beautiful night in New York. Wish you all could join me here!

Thanks for the very gracious comments about my technological skills. I was a little deflated when I saw the photo sideways, but I will practice so I can get it right. I have a fantasy of sitting at a cafe in Barcelona and doing a blog post with photos. The typing is cumbersome and I know there won't be a lot of text in the posts, but do want to be able to share photos during the trip. Being able to blog from my phone was one of my criteria when choosing a phone and I'm happy to know it can work. This wouldn't have crossed my mind a year ago, but it was something I wanted now. I wonder what I will be wanting when I choose my next phone, and what amazing gadgets will be available.

Wishes to all for a fabulously intoxicating evening!

Today was a fabulous day!
The warm breezes, the smell of spring, the sunshine and the sounds of birds nearby chirping.
Can't wait for spring to be here for good!

Yes, there's something in the air ... I felt it too, a waaaay over here!
One of these days I hope to graduate to a "grown-up" cell phone, too. I've a hunch you and it will become fast friends!

We're intoxicated with Spring like weather in Ohio too. Yesterday was nice and warm. Today we'll head back to normal but it sure was nice while it was here.

We are having springlike days here. I believe the snow crocus are trying to bloom, too. However, I know we will get another COLD snap. We always do. That's okay. I am not ready for the season to totally change yet.

All the snow in front of my house melted! Hurrah! I know it is supposed to get cold again tomorrow, but for today is was heaven!

I saw your I-phone post below! Good going!
