"SPRINTER" - a new definition of the word!

Utah redefines the word "SPRINTER" - noun, the period of time when Spring begins its emergence only to have Winter swing in with a vengeance.  Welcome to April in Utah!

These series of photos are what I see as I head down to the kitchen to start the coffee! 

 A fresh new layer of snow blankets My Mountain Green this morning!  Forecasting off and on snow all day today!

Just What I Needed...

To lift my spirit from the winter blues, nothing like a quick trip to the Florida Atlantic Ocean coast.
Glorious Sunrise!

Waking up to a breath-taking sunrise does wonders for the weary soul. 

At the last minute, my husband had to travel to Melbourne, Florida for a business meeting.  "Pack your bikini, we're going to Florida on Monday!"  Woo Hoo!  Sunshine and warmth here, I come!  Florida did not disappoint, my days were filled with playing and walking on the beach, soaking up as many sun rays as possible. 

Upon returning to Utah, Winter is still teasing Spring with snow and rain, but there are signs of renewal.

Bird migration is starting as I am seeing new birds each day.  Grass is greening.  Trees are budding.  My spirit is lifting each day as Spring approaches My Mountain Green.
