~Seeing~

crocuses blooming in the front bulb garden…

(this was yesterday…now the poor things are covered in snow!)

and one of my favorite Gladys Taber books

“The Book of Stillmeadow”

I’m doing a re-read of the spring entries…

I love her poem “Song for April”…

and the sweet illustrations…

~hearing~

The birds chirping in the tree tops…

The squirrels chattering…

and THIS SONG…

~for Emily wherever I may find her~

What a dream I had
Pressed in organdy
Clothed in crinoline
Of smoky burgundy
Softer than the rain

I wandered empty streets down
Past the shop displays
I heard cathedral bells
Dripping down the alleyways
As I walked on

And when you ran to me, your
Cheeks flushed with the night
We walked on frosted fields
Of juniper and lamplight
I held your hand

And when I awoke
And felt you warm and near
I kissed your honey hair
With my grateful tears
Oh, I love you girl
Oh, I love you

~smelling~

This cotton blossom candle as I write…

~tasting~

THESE YUMMY CARAMEL ROLLS

“When I get to Heaven, I am going to eat all the hot bread and potatoes I want. Cinnamon rolls, pinwheel biscuits, nut muffins, French-fried potatoes, baked potatoes, creamy mashed potatoes. Potato fluff. Butter will go well too. And fresh-made jam. Or clear amber honey.” ~Gladys Taber

~feeling~

bread dough…

~knowing~

that if I wait long enough to look outside, eventually the blasted snow will melt!

How are you spending your Saturday?

~Melissa
