I must say, I much prefer what I found waiting for me over at Dixie's blog much more pleasant than what I found at the end of my driveway this morning.
Here is what the sweet and sassy Dixie Chick gave me:
This bunch of flowers is wonderful on many levels. I am happy to have found Dixie as a friend and am blessed that she chose to give me this nice expression of her friendship. Also, as luck would have it we got dumped on with snow AGAIN yesterday. Yes, it was supposed to be the first day of spring. Apparently those in charge of the weather in Chicagoland didn't get that memo. Therefore, gazing at these lovely flowers gives me hope that eventually warmth may be on the way. Lastly, I am having a bit of stress and busy overload at the moment, so these really came at a great time.
This is what I found at the end of our driveway this morning. Courtesy, I believe, of the snow plow that had to clear all the lovely snow I mentioned earlier.
My neighbor actually found pieces of it in her driveway. Needless to say, I am thrilled to have something else on my plate.
