Three My-Favorite-Season-Is-Spring Thoughts for Thursday

For the past week, the weather has been perfect along our gravel road. The daisies, phlox, and peonies are blooming, the trees are in full leaf, and the grass in the ditches is a rich, luxurious green. Maybe that’s why these three thoughts for Thursday are mostly about my favorite season – spring.

  1. Mom had her springtime doctor’s appointment in Des Moines the same day Mitt Romney spoke a few blocks away. What a relief to not see the fella and tell him in person that I can’t be his running mate in the fall. I’m not sure he would understand that being a first time grandma leaves no time for politics.
  2. Apparently, there’s a blue jay convention in our town this week. They are everywhere. Talk about noisy, uncouth, overbearing tourists!
  3. My teacher friends are trying to motivate kids to learn their multiplication facts, study the three branches of government, and conjugate Spanish verbs on this beautiful spring day. The thought makes me want to bake cookies for them.

Who would you bake cookies for on this fine spring day? Leave a comment.

  1. Jolene, How ironic, I stayed home this morning & baked cookies & caramel rolls for the week end, as we are having guests. Would Love to have been able to bake all day but work calls. Take Care & God Bless

  2. Good to hear from you, Connie. Enjoy your guests this weekend. They’re going to love your baked goods! Someday Hiram and I will drive out to sample them.


  3. I was dying to bake cookies today, but other worked called. However, tomorrow night I have card club and so they will be the recipients of whatever I end up making in the morning. So far, Ting a Lings are high on the list.

  4. Clare –

    Will you be running down the street pushing extra cookies on your neighbors as you did with the chocolate cake? When that image formed in my head, I lauhged out loud.
