It's a cloudy Monday morning, with a chance of rain in the afternoon, but with a week ahead of sunshine and warmer temperatures, I look forward to getting out and doing some spring clean up in my yard. A little rain in the spring is not a bad thing, because I know these showers in April mean flowers in May! I was up bright and early this morning to bake some yummy cranberry orange muffins to enjoy with coffee in my new flowered mug; perfect for spring. Sometimes it's the little things that start a week right.
Coffee talk this morning is about a quiet weekend, spent reading, watching a little tv and taking a long walk. It was Master's weekend too, so this golfing household was riveted to the final rounds of beautiful Augusta National Golf Club. The blooming azaleas were a welcome sight for this northerner's flower starved eyes. I am happy to report though, my wild daffodils that I planted in the fall are coming up and will be blooming soon at the edge of the woods.
I also watched some baseball ( the Tigers are 6-0 to start the season), started a new mystery series that I love and am now halfway through ( Jane Whitefield books) and was riveted by Call The Midwife on PBS. Downton Abbey may be over for the year, but the great BBC shows keep coming and I am finding this season of Call The Midwife very good, even without Nurse Lee. The other characters have stepped up remarkably to fill the void.
