What a Difference a Day Makes

24 little hours.  After this fabulous taste of spring we have had for the last few days Mrs Thaw decided she needed a bit of a rest...
this is the same mud filled sled I posted yesterday about 2 hours after my post!  It slowly got colder throughout the day and snowed.   All day and night.  Not that we have all that much new snow, but it's new snow.  My husband just laughed and said "this would be great if it was November".  It's not unusual to have snow in Maine in early spring, I even remember a snow on my birthday in April once when I was a kid.  But none the less, I am just a little sad.  I'm ready to plant in the garden, lose the jackets and hats, and let the fire go out.  I know this will happen so for now instead of building forts in the spring air the kids are working on peg dolls (a constant around here lately) in front of the wood stove.

Happy Spring!  I know it will show it's face again soon...


  1. It does look very pretty. How hot does it get there in the summer? I have never been to Maine, but it's on the list!

  2. Haha, this a familiar scene! A few days ago the kids were out without coats and then it snowed all day yesterday. At least it only amounted to a couple of inches but all the mud buckets they'd piled up around the yard are covered. For the time being I'll enjoy the break from the mud.

  3. Oh goodness! I know...I am ready to lose the jackets too! It is so close! Happy Spring to you too! Warm, thawing wishes your way!

  4. Oh that cheeky Mrs Thaw. May she rest up then bring on spring, full force! I'm sure your garden will be lovely when it is all planted out. Jacinta

  5. Yes yes, I'm with you! I usually try not to complain about the changing of the seasons, but really now! We still have over a foot of snow on the garden and today my 5 year old was shovelling it off so we could plant! I've never ever done that before. Alas, it makes for excitement in the morning to see if there is more bare earth showing from the morning before!
