It has been almost a week since our state mandated “Stay-at-Home” quarantine. However, ever since I left my rat race career; I have become more of a social recluse by choice. So fortunately, the quarantine hasn’t really affected my life much… other than having to endure stupid actions by some hateful people when I do venture out to buy groceries. And speaking of groceries… I wish people would stop hoarding food and other basic toiletries. I mean really… hoarding two years worth of toilet paper? All this unnecessary hoarding has created more problems and anxiety in this turbulent time. Okay, I’ll get off my soap box now…
Today was one of those unpredictable weather phenomenon. Finally, after almost two weeks of rainy days; the sun broke out through the stormy clouds. The sunshiny moment casts a beautiful warmth and glow on the daffodils in the garden. Seeing the bright yellow flowers dancing in the breeze lifted my spirit and made me feel grateful for the beautiful opportunities around me.
I was able to shoot for about fifteen minutes before the sun retreated back behind the stormy clouds. Then the rain came back and it quickly turned into a pea size hail storm accompanied by the symphony of thunder and lightning.
According the the Old Farmer’s Almanac, the last frost date for my zone is around April 6th. I’ve been eagerly awaiting the for last frost so I can start planting my vegetable garden. It looks like I need to wait a little longer. Mother nature… you just never know what she’ll do.
