Happiness Carried On A Gentle Prairie Breeze
As I sat at my desk a beautiful song was just outside my window. The sun was setting and I gazed out at the trees to see who was serenading me.I looked all over not seeing a soul until I looked on the ground and there was a robin singing his heart out, perhaps looking for the love of his life. Flocks have been passing through for a number of weeks and it is always a sign of spring when they arrive. I closed my eyes and imagined sitting in my tent, a event soon to happen. One of the many pleasures of tent camping is waking to the songs of birds. It often tells me it is time to go fishing, or throw the kayak in the water and begin my day with a happy note.I have been rearranging my van to get ready today. I finally took out the mittens and hats, along with my sled and skates to make room for warm weather toys.Tuesday we have a threat of a mix of snow and rain, but I believe it will be short lived. I plan on going over to the University of Nebraska and visiting Morrill Hall. This natural history museum has the largest assemblage of mastodons and mammoths.One of my brothers helped assemble some of the displays while he was still in high school.Lots of good memories taking my family and friends here. I placed some blooms to cheer you up taken at a greenhouse in Mahoney State Park.I went to check out the iris garden there to see if anything was peeking up yet. They have over 35 varieties to enjoy. While there I was greeted by some bluebirds and shared their happiness. Our thoughts and happiness drifted over the land on a gentle prairie breeze, to share with all of you.
