Daffodil: One of spring’s friendliest faces

IMG_8756Today I’m so thankful for this friendly daffodil who came out to say hello yesterday. With the thermometer reading -15 early this morning, I welcome any sign of spring even if it is inside the house. As Mainers, we know that March 1st means one thing…that the days to follow are going to be a jumble of mixed signals.

I am interested to see how bad the spring thaw will be up here in the North Woods. From what we have heard….it might not be pleasant. We’ve been told that the Allagash river will come up in certain places and wash out the road.

At 17 degrees I guess it’s not something I have to worry about today. Instead, I will sit here in this sunny kitchen with my friendly daffodil and enjoy a cup of coffee (while two little boys run around screaming and throwing things like wild animals). 🙂

Happy Saturday!

I grew up in Downeast Maine but have recently relocated to the North Woods. I live in Clayton Lake where I am a stay at home Mom to two beautifully wild little boys and wife to a Maine State Game Warden. I am a lover of the simple things in life...a good book, a song, a rainy day, a bowl of white popcorn, etc. I have a slight obsession with all things food. Love cooking it, eating it, looking at it, smelling it, reading about it, etc. I am a firm believer that life is what you make it.
