Just a week after our March snow, we have beautiful, sunny weather. Even more amazing than the weather change is the change in my daffodils. They have resurrected.

That pitiful daffodil lying on the sidewalk is now a picture of health. Amazing, isn’t it? I’m very happy about this. Now imagine what a real resurrection would be like!

While your brain imagines resurrection, stretch it a bit further by reading this article by Jason Boyett. It is called “Romance on Valentine’s Day is Lame: A Guide to Being Romantic,” and is quite close to miracle status in my mind. Usually when men write about what women want, I’m left feeling very misunderstood. Not so with this article. [That’s a miracle. A guy wrote an article about women, and I concur.]


Sunday night Greenville got 4.5 inches of snow. That’s the most snow I remember seeing in the seven years that I’ve been here. Since snow is pretty rare for us, I enjoyed watching the flakes fall and stomping around in it a bit (even though I did have to put bags over my socks because my tennis shoes aren’t waterproof!).

The snow would have been much less enjoyable if we had lost power (like many people in the area). Snow is no fun when there’s no warm house to come back to. But we had working heat, so that wasn’t a problem.

The only downside to the snow (for me), was my daffodils. I love daffodils, and the snow crushed mine. Don’t they look tragic?
