Sunday Morning Peace

It's Almost Time!
for Spring, that is.
Loved this cute poem. 
So aptly describes how I feel 
even though I'm thankful for all the days God gives me. 

The First Bluebird

Jest rain and snow! and rain again!
And dribble! drip! and blow!
Then snow! and thaw! and slush! and then--
Some more rain and snow!

This morning I was 'most afeard
To wake up--when, I jing!
I seen the sun shine out and heerd
The first bluebird of spring!
Mother she'd raised the winder some;
And in acrost the orchard come,
Soft as an angel's wing,
A breezy, treesy, beesy hum,
Too sweet for any thing!

The winter's shroud was rent apart--
The sun bust forth in glee,
And when that bluebird sung, my hart
Hopped out of bed with me!

--James Whitcomb Riley

So cute!! I've seen some robins here but, sadly, no rain.

Oh, No. Not a Book Blurb! ...and June's Contest Question #1

A book blurb is one of the most important items of a marketing plan. Without it, you will find it harder to "sell" your book ...
