At Long Last: Spring!
Spring is trying so hard to manifest here in Augusta. I keep hoping it will happen any day now. The past couple of days have been so pretty, sunny and warmish-cool. My assistant Brittany texted me this morning to say that she thinks we should have a day set aside when we are allowed to call off "because it's just too pretty to work." I second that!
Here in our area it's very warm in the sun but also very cool in the shade, maintaining a need for jackets. Our flowers are late blooming, so the "garden city" is not quite living up to it's name yet. The Master's golf tournament is underway and that, of course, is the main event in town. I guess the weather is pretty good for golfing right now.
My son Noah, is trying to get out of Turkey and return home to start his civilian life after spending the last six years in the U.S. Air Force. He has been met with delays all along the way, and now is becoming frustrated. He's stuck in "transition limbo." I am very excited that he will be home this Saturday night. Woohoo!! That is my main event. My birthday is next week and I could not ask for a better gift than to have my son back. I have missed him.
I hope spring comes forth for all of us very soon. We've endured the winter storms and are now ready for the renewal that is springtime. Don't give up hope, it will surely happen.
