Yup we got a big rain storm last night and we even had thunder with it . It was warm and windy  and nice to hear the rain falling   as it remined me of a nice rainy summer night .

As I was finishing up in the kitchen from supper and making Papa’s lunch for work Miggs was snoozing on the couch .

                                       Yup a reflection of me in my jammies in the kitchen ,  I know what a weirdo  lol !

Well the evening went on  the rain poured down in buckets  with the odd clap of thunder  as I watched a few fave shows had a cuppa tea  Papa was busy on the computer  he is a gamer  every now and then and then we went to bed . The next moring was cloudy and not much sign of  sun shine  but the rain had stopped and the sky was dull  so Miggs and  Iwent for a walk  the temps were warm 9am it was +8 or 45F  and winds were calm  not bad at all . Then as we got back  the sun peeked out of the clouds and it stayed out all day and the skys were a brilliant blue  and the temsp were rising .

My favorite colour of one of my Geraniums is blooming and looks so pretty in the living room window soaking up the sun shine !

  Miggs jumped  off of her swing to chase a squirrel or cat as all I heard was her grumbling like she does when in hot pursuit lol  then she layed down  on the grass to watch over the yard again  , I just had asked her if she wanted a treat  , and that face says it all doesn’t it ? !

It is nice to have the sun set later each evening now and it stay lighter longer to  and to have more sunny days . Well thats about it for us for now  the rest of the week is to be sunny and just above freezing so that will be nice to have the sun shine every day , oh I just noticed my Daffs in the front garden poking up from the ground  and after all the rain last night  we have no snow left any where now !

                                                                                 Until next time .

Well, it still actually looks mostly white here, but it's absolutely ridiculous winter weather. Looks like early spring at your place. And yes, i guess you're a weirdo!

We got it all as snow and freezing rain, assuming it was the same system.

Let's hope that spring is on the way for you. I am sure that the rain got rid of any snow that was left. Have a great week .

We had a lot of rain on Wednesday and very warm temps. But overnight tonight we are supposed to get a few inches of snow. This really is crazy winter weather.

Great series of photos Elaine but I think my favorite one was of the reflection of you in your Jammie's. A girl after my own heart :)
