Perspective

What's Jack up to? The wild one is resting up today after a busy Jack type weekend. I'm happy to say he's a shaggy dog no more after getting a long overdo hair cut. He had a lot more pep in his step after his grooming and let everyone know how fine he thought he looked. He's so vain.

Hello Monday! I hope everyone had a lovely weekend.

We’ve had some slightly warmer weather this weekend that finally melted all the snow and left me with this sad view out my kitchen window.


Sigh, just looking at it makes me tired thinking of all the work it will take to make it look like something pretty this spring.


But wait, what’s that over there in the corner down by all those hard rocks?

Looks like all the work is not up to me at all. Don’t you just love it when things are put in perspective?



Perspective : the interrelation in which a subject or its parts are mentally viewed ; also : point of view b: the capacity to view things in their true relations or relative importance


Strength-the quality or state of being strong : capacity for exertion or endurance


Best,
Kwana

Great strength from another perspective always grants new hope. As the saying goes, snow covers a blanket of hope.
I think we are in for lots of surprises this Spring!

Ah, yes, Spring brings eternal hope:)

Love your first sign of spring. What a difference a week makes!

What great motivation.

Once spring has sprung and your yard is pretty, you can strut around like Jack and marvel at your accomplishment.

I hope spring is here to stay, for me I'm weather driven. Never thought I would be so happy to see the sun. Enjoy your week!

Nice post today. Gives the sensation of hope is always on the way. God takes us through the seasons of life with ups and downs but one thing we know is we are in this world because of HIM. He shows us the signs that puts a smile of our faces and lets us know he is never far away and in touch with us all.

Yes, I dido MariaGeraci.

After the winter everyone up north has had, this spring should be the most beautiful ever.

Are you going to grow veggies again this year? Are you planning your garden?

Just when you think everything looks so gray after the snow melts, life seems to pop up and add a ray of color and life. I love the stone in your backyard so to be covered with color.
Enjoy your day! xoxo

How beautiful, Kwana! What a great illustration of looking for the bright side. Love your stone wall!

Isn't it funny how they react from a grooming? Our Golden always seems to have an identity crisis for a day after he gets his summer cut!

Jax Cassidy said...

Lovely. The flowers bloom amidst the deadened grass.... I'm so ready for Spring!

Laura @ the shorehouse. said...

Yay! Flowers! Hope "springs" eternal indeed. :-)

Louisa Edwards said...

I can't wait to see my first crocus or daffodil! Seems like a long ways away still.

Kwana said...

Thanks for all the sweet comments.

Yes, Kristen I plan to try a few vegetables this year. I'd better get thinking. How about you?

Ina I'm sorry about your falls. I hope you are ok.

Thanks for the comments on my stone wall. It's very rocky in our town. I'll have to show you all the bog rock sometime.
