Good for the Soul

Oh, Beautiful Day


The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another.
The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month.

~Henry Van Dyke


Yesterday the twig was brown and bare;
To-day the glint of green is there;
Tomorrow will be leaflets spare;
I know no thing so wondrous fair,
No miracle so strangely rare.
I wonder what will next be there!

~L.H. Bailey


May I tell you just how much I needed a beautiful day? We got one today... and spent hours outside.
I feel like a new person. But the mud, oh, the mud.

The only thing I don't like about spring is the mud. But I so enjoyed the sunshine.

Aimee~ I've been wondering about my vit D level, too.... I got lots today, though. (Not much school done, but, I'll take what I can get.)

Thanks for sharing all the fun photos, especially the flower bud. We are very far from having any. I am so glad you enjoyed your beautiful day and were able to share it!

oh dear. I may have to start boycotting your blog for three months until that weather makes up to this side of the hemishpere :)

Or maybe I'll just start DRINKING vitamin D. LOL!

It was a gorgeous day! I wish we'd been outside more.

I was doing a quick post of my own and went in search of a spring quote when I saw this post and your quote. I looked and looked for another one, but in the end, I found the one you used and it was just too perfect, so I used it, too. :) Thanks!
