A little time can change things. I am much happier today. The sun has been shining. It is March already. The daffodils are coming up and there are a couple of crocuses starting to poke their heads above ground at last. Everything is a few weeks late this year, but it is finally starting to turn to spring. I can feel it in the air.
I decided to take the dog for a walk along the river bank. I'm kind of avoiding the forest, following the disgraceful performance the hairy monster managed last time. The River Severn runs from Wales down to Bristol. It used to be a major trading route, but now it is only navigable up to Stourport.That's where I walked to today from Bewdley. It is about 5 miles and it took me just over an hour. It was bright and I didn't even have to wear my winter coat. What a relief it is to shed an outer layer for a few hours.I took some photos of the cygnets, Canada geese and a pair of coots. The catkins are just coming out too. The blue bridge is in Stourport, and I thought it looked pretty in the sun. Mum came and gave me a lift, so I didn't have to walk another five miles - back to my car!


  1. I am so glad! We have tuplips coming up here too through the snow! I am so happy.

    You won't believe this, but our county needs teachers. We live in this tiny town of 100 people and it is 30 minutes to the closest town, and 2 hours from a nice mall or real movie theater. We only have a small amount of kids at the school and when I volunteered at the school they asked me if I would be interested in coming on.

    I instantly thought of you. I am sure that teaching k-5 here would be different, and the staff are mostly people I already know, go to church with, or am related to. So I am sure it would alright. It is just I had never thought of it before.

    So I am still kicking it around in my head. There are only about 20 kids in each class and it is a tiny school. Any advice?

  2. Glad you found time to unwind, Rachel. You certainly deserved it, particularly after the events of the Feb.26 post.

  3. Thanks John :o) I go up and down, but generally I bounce at the bottom. Lol!
