Could it be?

Spring? Fair weather and balmy temperatures are calling for an early weekend. We saddle our steeds and hit the road.


Open up your eyes and see the brand new day
The clear blue sky and brightly shining sun
Open up your ears and hear the breezes say
Everything that's cold and gray is gone

Taste the wind and smell the flowers' sweet perfume
Open up your mind and let the light shine in
The earth has been reborn and life goes on.

Spring lyrics by John Denver
 
Life is good!

  2. Very nice, glad you could get out and enjoy the sunshine. It looks much, much drier up north than it does in Oregon, it'll be weeks/months before we dry out. I'm hoping for a warm, dry May.

    1. It has been rainy until it stopped about two days ago, but it sure will be back with a vengeance.

  3. Awesome pictures Sonja. I am glad you two got out for a ride.

    We finally saw some sunshine and just a little bit of snow is left out back on the deck. Should be gone today.

    1. Well, at least we didn't get much snow over here, lots of rain though.

  6. Sonja:

    you mean . . . while I was slaving at work, you took the day off and went riding ?

    somehow this just doesn't sound fair

    1. Exactly, Bob. Carpe diem. The boss was out of town, and I skipped work (well I will have to make up for it next week...).

  9. Glad you got out...seems to have been a log time in coming. Not that i can talk as summer has been pretty average over here. Roll on summer for you!

  11. Sonja,

    John Denver's song was appropriate a week ago, but the more accurate song for these parts is "Snowbound" by Donald Fagen:

    "We hit the street with visors down, with our thermasuits sealed up tight!"

  12. Sonja,
    Love the sunburst. I can imagine how surprised and pleased you were that it turned out at all...and, then to have been interesting was a real bonus. Glad you were able to get in some miles.

    Thanks for the share.
