singing / spring?
“The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another. The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month.” - Henry Van Dyke
Seems ever since the "first day of Spring" it has been rainy and chilly - today only a high near 50 and the low is almost reaching freezing. But tomorrow it's supposed to be sunny and 70. I believe Mark Twain said, “In the Spring, I have counted 136 different kinds of weather inside of 24 hours.” Well I don't know about 136 different kinds but there sure has been a wide range here in Atlanta. Tonight I finished my ring - makes me want to sing. Ok, sorry that was bad. But I am excited to have a finished product that I can wear and feel sort of proud of. Now that I see it photographed I can tell that I need to do some more polishing but if you knew how much trouble I had getting this together you would understand my excitement. Has anyone ever done soldering? It can be pretty tricky. / the buds of spring are supposed to mean warmth and good weather, right? i don't know about that.. because while i was collecting leaves for my 3D design project today my hands were nearly freezing off! four days of rain and cold weather.. i hope the temperature will decide to rise soon.

If you care to visit, I, Leslye, have another blog - AutumnSun where I ramble around different paths and pleasures of my own.
