At last!

The sun is shining and we are enjoying our second consecutive 70-degree day since October. It didn't warm up gradually - remember we had snow and cold right through Wednesday. So this is a Big Deal, and people are relishing the little things...working next to an open window, sitting outside with an iced tea, putting away the down coats and fur-lined boots.

The only green in the landscape is evergreens, but in our hearts, there is light and warmth and rejoicing, and to me it feels a lot like this image.


And speaking of "At Last," here is a favorite version by the late Eva Cassidy.

I'm glad some spring has come your way and that you are feeling the joy of it. I am especially appreciating that I don't have to put on all the winter gear just to walk the dog.

We had our first perfect day yesterday -- now we're back to gloomy skies and predictions of rain, which judging from the look of it, seem about right on target. But yesterday, flawless.

I, too, love Eva Cassidy. How sad she's no longer here with us.

Finally! I knew it had to come sooner or later. It sure was later this year, wasn't it? Glad to hear it, though. :-)

Finally! We are rejoicing up here too..but I fear it will be short lived:(

We had a nice day last week. Now it's cloudy again, but I have faith!

Had never heard of Eva Cassidy. LIstened to this song and then went out to read about her. Thanks.

It's been so so long a winter. And with a frozen septic tank line its been had to maintain Minnesota Nice...:)

love that version of this song! I keep thinking I should do a playlist of every cover of "At Last" that I can find (same with Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah"). Thanks for reminding me of it! Happy spring!

We're just ending our first stretch of really good weather - sunny and 70s for the past week, but rain is moving in. Good for the farmers, I guess.

I've been an Eva fan for years. Such a shame to lose her so young.
