Nature's tease

I wanted to get this post up last night but got carried away with the election of the New Pope. It was both exciting and humbling at the same time to witness it all though only on television. Many a times I wished I were in Rome. Maybe the Lord heard me and granted my desire in a small way with the pealing of church bells in our little town. It was truly an exhilarating experience to listen to the bells ring out in joy in the quiet of the night to herald our new leader Pope Francis.

Coming back to the post, nature has been teasing us. Really!!
Take a look for yourself.

After a week of warmer temperatures and first signs of spring we have been dumped with snow, so much that we haven't seen all of winter. And I thought we would soon be needing popsicles, but instead we're having icicles!!! I just think to my self that maybe the snow gods wanted a last goodbye with me?? Who knows..

Finally, some EIS!!

After the winter break, the Eis cafes all around town have just about opened their doors. Every evening, the kids crash into the house from school, go to their piggy banks scrambling for pennies and then promptly rush out the door for that cone of eis!

Yay, it's March!!

March is here with a big surprise, BLUE skies!! I woke up to a gorgeous sunrise, one that I hadn't seen for months, followed by picture perfect skies the entire day. In my time spent living here, I have come to learn that such days are precious, not to be wasted indoors. I went on a very long walk, taking in sights of the first blooms of crocuses and snow white drops in private gardens. My heart leapt in bounds at the first sight of colour springing forth from the ground. Gardens were dug, some still working on them, tulip bulbs were springing forth new shoots and the birds were singing a lot! I thought, I must share this beauty that I was surrounded with today.
