Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems. ~Rainer Maria Rilke

He brought himself... and chocolate.

Our oldest son came up for the weekend. I made a cherry pie. This is what is left.
And he brought us Godiva chocolate... three pieces each of our favorites.
 I've cut them in small pieces so they lasts longer...well, kind of. You know how that rationalization goes.  I tend to eat less this way. Right?
We went to dinner at Teresa's in Jackson last night. Had a wonderful dinner and came home filled with good food and leftovers.
The visits are never long enough, but our son drove up to see us and that's all that is important.

Carl is wondering what happen and where the guy went.
He's been sitting on the sofa bed looking like he lost his best friend. Dogs... you've got to love that 'ears back, sad eyed' look.
I have to say that this weather is beautiful. It rained last night, was foggy this morning and sunny the rest of the day. It's the reason folks come to California.
The Daffodils are blooming profusely... everywhere. We are not out of the woods with the drought conditions, but this rainy weather certainly has put everyone in a better mood.
Take a deep breath and smell Spring...
It's just around the corner.

“It is spring again. The earth is like a child that knows poems by heart.”
 ~Rainer Maria Rilke~


  1. nice...saw a couple heads poking up in the flower bed...and then it snowed....oy...glad you had a good visit...i will let you keep the chocolate but care to share the pie? smiles.

  2. Such a feel good post...home made pie, visits from loved ones, spring hope and of course CHOCOLATE! It's very stormy and wet here but as long as I have my wood stove and tea, I'm a happy camper.
