patience / hoping


“Beneath the crisp and wintry carpet hid A million buds but stay their blossoming And trustful birds have built their nests amid The shuddering boughs, and only wait to sing Till one soft shower from the south shall bid And hither tempt the pilgrim steps of Spring.” -Robert Bridges

This little bird (and more over here), sitting in her nest, beak opened in song, makes me happy just to look at her. I keep feeling like spring is just around the corner. Patience. /dorm life is great and everything - i love living in really close proximity to my good friends - but having a house would be fantastic! i have an opportunity to look at a house with three of my close girl friends and i am beyond excited - our own furnishings, our own rooms, our own bathrooms! we might even get a front porch. we'll see how it goes, wish us luck [:

*fingers crossed for the porch*

tomorrow it will be 60 - the early blooms are blooming. I know it's wishful thinking, but I do feel that thrill for an early spring.

What a fantastic concept--the photo-pal.
My daughter is quite fascinated by photography and my wife has taken it up as a hobby ever since we had kids. You also might enjoy this piece as it's quite fitting:

That little bird is so joyful looking! Spring is far away for us in the Northeast. Sigh.

How exciting! Hope the house works out for you and your friends!
